the 4Ps of a certain hotel

for real-life situations and jobs. Challenging courses have trained me unique skills
and that the answers will not always come easy to me. Through courses like this

work. Many of my experience have also given me the opportunity to get an understanding

biggest weakness is accounting; I find it very challenging and difficult,
however I always try to better myself by going to an accounting help centre and
asking my instructors questions about topics I don’t fully understand. I also feel that my leadership skills could be

are your goals for the next five to ten years? How do you plan to achieve them?
My goal right now is to finish my education and to find a
position at a company where I can develop and take on new challenges over time. I want to work somewhere where
I’ll have chances to develop my skills and work with people I can learn from. Eventually,
I’d like to take on more management duties and get involved in product development. But most importantly, I want to work for an organization where I can form a career.
would you deal with conflict in the workplace?
I dealt with conflict with another person by using effective
communication. During my volunteering work at Doha Film Festival, I worked with
a colleague who was not interested in co-ordination. This created conflict for
the job. After I saw him continuously not doing his part, I decided to talk to him,
I kindly let him know that he was not completing his responsibilities and that
it was creating a distraction for the team. After talking about if for a couple
of minutes, he valued my point of view and we developed a trusting link. I no
longer had to worry about him missing his deadlines again.

ideal for this human resource assistant role. It’s not just my
background and successful projects or my communication skills, which have
helped me develop great relationships with family and work colleagues. But I’m
about this industry and I’m very motivated to deliver outstanding work.
