So as I approach my last year of college I find myself trying to hone in on where I want to try and start, maybe finish, my career at. I know I definitely want to work at the actual resort wherever I go and not a local non-affiliated company. The reason for this is that my passion is for the mountains and people who share that passion. Getting to improve the experience for a guest who is looking to experience the same thing as me is what drives my energy and enthusiasm.
I currently have two summers of experience in customer service with one summer at a local luxury country club and this summer I am out in the west working at a small but well known resort in the rockies. (Name left out for hr reasons.) I would like to try and stay on the customer service side of the resort but will have a degree in marketing from a fairly good business school.
I am curious what resorts in the west would anyone here suggest as a good place to start and really try to build a career out of. I'm certainly willing to put in the hard work and the time to earn upward momentum but don't want to waste time with any resort or company that is more likely to hire from outside than promote from within. Information on cost of living around area is also appreciated!
Thank you everyone!
