I worked in the Hospitality and Tourism industry in West Cork between April 2004 and September 2005. I was part of the waiting and kitchen staff in several pubs and restaurants and I also ran a Bed & Breakfast for a few busy months.
I learnt discipline, independence and team work; I improved my organisational skills and experienced working under pressure, to strict safety guidelines and with ever-changing short deadlines.
I soon realised I could work really well under stressful circumstances and was able to deal with a great variety of customers, staff, managers and suppliers.
