Hello old friends!
It has been a while since I have updated this blog, but I have not given up on my Disney Dreams! After I realized I would not meet my seasonal requirements I self separated from the company in order to have an unrestricted re-hire status when I applied for Professional Internships and the CP.
I went to Detroit to intern at GM and I had a really great time. Surprisingly Chevrolet has been sending their dealership owners to conferences at Disney to learn about customer service! I really think my experiences working for the company helped me in this internship as I was able to draw from the things I learned at Disney.
I am graduating in May! (Finally!) So what are my plans? Well I want to apply for Professional Internships, My dream job is Guest Relations, and I really feel that I would be fantastic at it! There are several other internships I am interested in as well, so we will see. However they are very competitive so I will also be applying to the CP as something to fall back on. You need to be in school or on a current program to be eligible for PI's so if I don't get one and I do a CP I get another chance!
The thing is I am only interested in Hospitality or Concierge really. They say the more roles you choose the better chance you have. It is sort of risky to only apply for these roles but I think I should have a better chance since I did Hospitality previously, and that is the line of business I am interested in the most. BBB would be cool too. So I don't really know, I'm looking for a position that would strengthen my chances of getting Guest Relations.
Applications for both should go up in mid January, so I am patiently (not) waiting. The only snag is with PI's sometimes they don't let you know until like APRIL!! So that leaves you scrambling at the end. I'm also applying for non-Disney jobs but I haven't heard anything in regards to those. In the mean time I am stalking the Fall 2013 programs Facebook group and trying to get application and interview information from current PI's!
