I wish to thank you all for the chances to work with you, I have leared a lot during those years with Imperial Hotel Management College, and I much appreciate the training which paved my way into the industry.

Let me take this opportunity to share my story to all the students and to give them some words of encouragement.

I traveled back to Taiwan in October 2008, it was a disaster year fill with natural disaster and economic crisis.

I couldn't get a job first, but somehow I found the email of Regent Taipei Hotel's Chairman and I wrote a self introduction letter to him, and received an interview a week later.

That become my first job.




I started off as:

My responsibilities include setting up F & B SOP for the hotel.  Shortly after, I transferred again and took up the role of the following:

I left Regents in October 2010, and received an offer from Le Meridian Taipei:

Currently I am working at The Sherwood Taipei as Marketing Executive for F & B and Rooms. We are working to revamp the brand images and 2013 marketing plan development as well.

Once again, thank you Eric and everyone at Imperial Hotel Management College for sharing all the knowledge enabling me to go into the industry progressing well.

I will keep on working harder to reach my goal!
