Name: Maverick A. Javier
Course: Grand Diploma
Internship Venue: Hyatt City of Dreams Manila
Here are some excerpts from his internship diary:
“For thirteen weeks I worked in a noisy, fast-paced, harsh, mentally and physically draining environment called the professional kitchen. Most people would not stand the pressure of coming to, let alone working, in a place such as this. But I enjoyed and thrived in every moment I was in it. I used to go home every night dog-tired but before I went to bed I would always look forward to what’s in store for me the next day. Undergoing and finishing my internship at Hyatt, City of Dreams Manila was on of the most challenging yet exciting experiences I have ever had.
It was more than what I expected. At first I though my responsibilities would be limited to organizing storage rooms, arranging deliveries in the walk-in chillers and peeling and chopping vegetables. But I was surprised that I also got to set up buffet spreads, entertain guests and yes, cook at the live stations! That was the most thrilling part of the job for me. I was trained and treated like an employee.
My short stint at Hyatt taught me valuable lessons both in personal and professional aspects. Here are 5 significant learning from my internship:
1. Always put your best foot forward
2. Be part of a team
4. Hard Work pays off
5. Keep your stations clean
Finishing my internship with flying colors proves that I have a place in the professional kitchen. After this chapter in my career I am now more confident in working in this environment. However, there is still much knowledge to gain and skills to polish. I intend to keep on learning and getting better.
My culinary journey has only just begun. There’s no stopping now. I am finally doing what I love.”
