11/2015 - 01/2016, Welcoming hostess, City One, Paris, France
I welcomed passengers to large Parisian train stations. My team and I managed arrivals, departures and large crowds. I worked for two weeks at the COP 21, welcoming politicians and diplomats and helping them find their way. My team also managed crowd movements caused by suspicious parcels.
09/2015 - 12/2015, Waitress and Kitchen assistant, Crêperie Mad'éo!, Paris, France
I served customers in a 35-seat room. I also did the dishes and sometimes prepared desserts. This job allowed me to learn how a business works. I observed my boss meeting with suppliers and doing the books. As part of my law studies, I now lead negotiations with business contracts. I enjoyed communicating with and pleasing customers. I also served as a kind of a community manager because I posted on Facebook and Instagram. I left to obtain my driver's licence.
