Hello guys, my name is Fatih and I´m currently doing an internship at the M2Students Hostel in Porto. I am studying International Management at the International School of Management in Munich, Germany.
I have chosen Porto because I was here on my vacation and I really like it. I know so that so many people prefer to go to Lisbon. But Porto is smaller than Lisbon and by bike and even by feet you can see everything of Porto. The nightlife is at least as good as in Lisbon and Porto also provide nice beaches and also a good weather 😊. And Porto is not so hectic as Lisbon, which is much better.
I chose M2Students because I have already done internships in the field of Project Management and Marketing. The next one should be in a small and familiar company. I was always interested in how the processes are in Hotels and Hostels because I can imagine to found hostels in Munich. In huge hotels you are mostly not integrated in all processes. But here at M2Students you do everything! You are responsible for the whole hostel when you work. The first week you get trained on all processes and by the second/ third week you work completely on your own. But the colleagues support you at any time. If you do mistakes that doesn’t matter, and you can choose the best way to solve things by yourself. That’s what I really like. I can work on my own without being afraid of doing something wrong and get into problems.
Because of a familiar and supportive atmosphere, you always have the opportunity to tell about your own ideas to your colleagues and discuss about it. At M2Students there are activities for our guests. Every day there is another one. I have the opportunity to also plan the activities and put my own ideas into it. The staff is also young. Therefore, I also do some activities with my colleagues for example going surfing or to the beach. I also have the opportunity to tell my colleague who is responsible for the schedule to plan my working days as I prefer. Of course, that doesn’t work always like I want. But most of the time! 😊
So if you would like to work in a very open-minded and supportive team and also if you would like to take responsibilities I would personally recommend you to work here at M2Students.
