Hired just after her internship

Sometimes Vatel students are hired with open-ended contracts right after they do their internships, and even better than that, sometimes new jobs are created for them, and by them.

Hired just after her internship

At the Mirador Resort & Spa, overlooking Lake Geneva near Vevey in Switzerland, Aubane Rietsch, a young French-Swiss national, did an (optional) internship between her MBA years in human resources and internal communication

“There wasn’t an HR function in this hotel yet, which had just been taken over with new managers. I noticed that they had needs in this field and I unassumingly tried to address them. The hotel manager contacted me and said that I could create my own job. We agreed on the function of organizational development manager, which is between HR and marketing. What I mostly do, is using comments and discussions with our guests, detect things that can be improved and put in place internal procedures to avoid and solve issues. That makes life easier for everyone, including employees.” 

She started working in April as the Mirador Resort & Spa's Organizational Development Manager, even before she graduates!
