DeanTeam Leader-EventsDean was referred to Galvin’s Choice by his university tutor as a promising opportunity to pursue a career in hospitality. His family also supported him as he was welcomed into the program. Dean’s introduction to Hyatt began with a one-month work experience in October 2014. During this time, he was able to explore the various departments. After his experience, he was offered a position with Hyatt Regency Churchill and worked in this capacity for eight months. In August 2015, he became a full-time employee as a waiter and was then promoted in November 2016 to Team Leader in Events. “Working at Hyatt Regency London- The Churchill feels like being surrounded by family all day. I have the privilege to work with a fantastic team, and the people I have met along the way were always supportive and very respectful. I created a very strong bond with the people here, and I have always enjoyed being a Hyatt colleague.”
EmaniFront DeskBefore enrolling in the hospitality training program at Goodwill Greater Washington, Emani heard about the program while she was a student at the Latin American Youth Center. Emani and her cousin decided to give it a chance and ended up graduating together. Goodwill was not her first job training program. She previously spent six months in a curriculum that would teach both formal classroom-based learning and experiential skills-based training sessions. After she joined Goodwill’s hospitality program, she immediately noticed the difference in the way the programs were administered. Goodwill’s program emphasized experiential learning and making authentic job connections. Their teachers and coaches took an individualized and personal approach to their training and stressed the importance of effective communication. hrough Goodwill’s partnership with the American Hotel and Lodging Association and Hyatt, Emani had an opportunity to explore various roles, career paths, and inner workings of the hospitality industry. She found herself attracted to roles that would allow her to utilize her passion for engaging with people, especially through customer-facing roles. Everyone in the program had an opportunity to shadow at two different hotels to gain real-life work experience. This aspect of the training was incredibly engaging and helped her figure out where she wanted to start my career in hospitality. As part of the job shadowing experience, Emani spent a week at Hyatt House Washington DC / The Wharf, where she worked alongside front desk agents. She experienced firsthand how essential teamwork and communication are in servicing hotel guests. On her last day of shadowing, her supervisor shared that he was also a graduate of the Latin American Youth Center and has since progressed to his current management role. This interaction inspired Emani to pursue a career with Hyatt.
AyaFrom Al-Salt to Chef, Grand Hyatt AmmanAya’s culinary journey began at the Vocational Training Center in Al-Salt, Jordan in 2007. After seeing several advertisements around her community, Aya quickly became interested in joining the Vocational Training Center. She wanted to take the road less traveled and embark on a journey that was different from the path her friends had chosen. Aya’s family was very understanding and supportive of her decision to join the training program since her brother studied hospitality, they were familiar with what it takes to be a part of the hospitality world. With her family’s blessing, she began her studies in a program that was close to home. At the Vocational Training Center Aya was introduced to the fundamentals of the hospitality industry. She trained on a variety of skills ranging from, the importance of each cutting board’s color and when to use them, to how to interact with guests. She gained a vast amount of knowledge and learned the true meaning of what it takes to work in a hotel. After the education portion of her training program, Aya needed to enroll in a cross-training internship at a four or five-star hotel in the kingdom. Grand Hyatt Amman offered her an opportunity to train in the housekeeping department, where she worked for three months before transitioning to the culinary department. Once her two-year training program was complete, Aya decided to explore an opportunity at a different hotel and took a position as a Commis 2. She quickly learned her new work environment did not compare to what was offered at the Grand Hyatt Amman. So after one year of service, she resigned from the hotel in order to rejoin the Grand Hyatt Amman family as a Commis 2. Within two years she received her first promotion to become a Commis 1. Aya’s hard work, dedication, and love of the hotel industry didn’t stop there! Three years later, she earned herself another promotion as a Demi-Chef de Partie in the Events Kitchen— making her the youngest female Demi Che
PhuongRestaurant ManagerPhuong grew up on the Cham Islands, off the coast of central Vietnam, with no running water, healthcare, or high school education. She was only able to support herself through the beginning of high school; but luckily, she was introduced to the STREETS program when they were opening their first classes. After working quite hard at her STREETS apprenticing and studies, she graduated and started her career at the notable Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai, Hoi An as a server. Soon after, she received a promotion to a supervisor. Several years later, she was eager to explore opportunities in the high-end luxury hospitality market. STREETS has a close relationship with the Park Hyatt Saigon General Manager, so Phuong decided to pursue an opportunity with Park Hyatt Saigon. She was hired as a Service Team Leader. She continued to grow and develop through her exemplary work ethic at Park Hyatt Saigon, which earned her a promotion to Assistant Food and Beverage Outlet Manager. Phuong always puts family first. She helps support her parents on the Cham Islands with many of their basic necessities. She also helps mentor recent STREETS graduates. Most recently, coming full circle, STREETS celebrated her return to the program as a Restaurant Manager. The STREETS family is happy to see Phuong pursue her dreams and help others follow theirs as well. "I am so lucky to have STREETS and to have a family. It hurts me to know that there are people who have it more difficult than me; it is my dream to help people."
LinhFrom STREETS International to Waitress at Hyatt Regency DaNang Resort and SpaLinh grew up in an impoverished, isolated Co Tu Village, located in one of the minority communities in central Vietnam. Her parents were subsistence farmers, as were the majority of the people living in her village, and they were frequently left with very little food to eat. In order to give herself an opportunity to work in hospitality, Linh decided to join the STREETS program. After successfully completing the program, STREETS was able to assist Linh with securing a position as a seasonal staff server at the Hyatt Regency Danang Resort and Spa. Several months later, having proven her hospitality skills, language proficiency, and professionalism, she was offered a permanent position at the resort’s popular Beach House restaurant. While working at the hotel, Linh met her future husband, Vien. He has worked at the resort for four years and started out as a Steward. After five months in the position, he transferred to the culinary department to become a Commis. The Hyatt Regency Danang Resort and Spa has provided a supportive environment for their staff, which has enabled Linh and Vien to grow in their hospitality careers and life together. They had their first child, and when he became ill at 20 months, they were able to provide him with proper medical care at a nearby hospital in the modern city of Da Nang, where they reside. Linh feels extremely supported in her position with the resort, that she and her husband are continuing to grow their family. Through her hard work and the support of Hyatt Regency Danang and STREETS International, Linh is living a very fulfilling life.
