I am interested in working for a Tour Operator. I have knowledge of the way travel agencies work because of my professional experience in Spain and my degree in Tourism.
I would like to have experience in a British environment to gain knowledge of the working style of a Tour Operator in England and also to improve my English.
My professional experience in a travel agency is in selling by telephone, explaining the itinerary of a trip, the different choices of accommodation and finally the price. Afterwards, I contacted the office of the foreign country, by email, to book the trip and finally I confirmed that the trip is booked to the customer. I have also worked in the flight department to prepare the flight tickets and in the documentation department doing the vouchers for the customers.
My main goals are learning how the business sells its product to its customers (by telephone and / or internet), how many services it offers for each product, what kind of hotels they work with, what the market target is, what the best strategy to decide a suitable price is, etc.
I am not looking for a specific department; however, the marketing and sales department would be the most interesting for me.
Thank you very much in advance for your help.
I look forward to hearing from you.
SAMPLE LETTER OF MOTIVATION 2
I am a 24-year old Turkish graduate from Istanbul University of Biology.
My Work Experience Week I travelled to France for my work experience to improve my French whilst gaining some valuable experience in the world of work. I left for France from Portsmouth on Friday arriving early on the Saturday morning. I had an enjoyable weekend; getting to know my host family, speaking French, and having a welcome break from schoolwork. I commenced working on Monday morning at 8 ...
I have been working for a Turkish pharmaceutical company for 3 years as a sales representative. I work mainly outside the office directly with hospitals, doctors and pharmacies. We also have pharmaceutical training periodically. I organise our weekly meetings and prepare presentations on human anatomy and drugs.
Last year, while working, I completed a post graduate course in Business administration at the University of Istanbul Faculty of Business. I need to improve my English for my job and to help me get promotion at work.
I started my career in the pharmaceutical sector and I wanted to learn more and to increase my knowledge of the marketing environment. I have already worked in biological analysis and sales.
I hope I can learn a lot from this experience.
