Hi Everyone,

I got my MBA Degree in Hospitality in 2009. I was so happy about this, and also I really appreciate all the experience at HTMi.

I am now working for Best Western (China) head office as the manager in charge of member hotel Quality Assurance, Branding Identity and also as a part of Group Purchasing. Last November, I have been receiving training as a qualified BW Quality Assurance Administrator and Auditor.

During a half year member hotels quality audit, I got many chances to meet the hotel owners and managers. Many of them are asking me whether we could recruit some international students to work for the hotels as Management Trainees. The Member Hotels will provide accommodation and salary to students, and after the training is completed the trainees willget aCertificate from Best Western International.

Therefore, I want to offer this opportunity to our HTMi students. I think this is very good opportunity for all graduates. They will have chance to see how China is developing and experience the hotel industry here. This in my view is very good for anyones future career. Best Western International has already had more than 4000hotels in the world,and the BW hotels all are independently operated and owned. But all member hotels have to follow one quality assurance standard. I arrange the audit schedule for each member hotel in China and that depends on the former audit report score. So far we have 62 hotels in China, 35 hotels operating and 27 hotels at pre-opening stage. I believe that there will be a lot of opportunity for students to practice their management skills here.

I really want to do something for our HTMi school. If this really helps our students, that will be my honor.

Best regards and wishes from Beijing.
