Case Study of a IACC Intern

Miguel-Angel Siedi-Kosunen, Kendall College, Chicago.

“My idea after graduating from Kendall College was to work in an environment that would allow me to use all my abilities and skills. I had that opportunity at the Summit Executive Centre. Even though my main role was to handle the front desk, I assisted in F&B functions, marketing, room set-up and more. I truly enjoyed my experience, not only because I personally grew as an individual, but also because the new skills and abilities that I acquired will be beneficial for me in the future. My experience at the Summit Executive Centre exceeded my expectations.”

Louise Silberman, Managing Director, Summit Conference Centre, Chicago.

“I attended a breakfast workshop at Kendall College and was seated next to Miguel-Angel Siedi. I was impressed from the moment I met him. He was eager and enthusiastic about joining the hospitality industry. When I hired him a few months later, I was not disappointed. He clearly was prepared for what it takes to be successful. He understood the importance of customer service and was extremely detail oriented. In the time that he worked for the Summit he left his mark!”
