  克里斯多夫,能跟我们说一下你是如何选的瓦岱勒的吗?
- K% q5 N+ a! x5 j  y  高中最后一年,我决定在一个既喜欢又能很快开始工作的地方继续我的学业。那时,我正在酒店业和计算机科学之间纠结,不确定选哪一个。因此这两个专业的入学考试我都参加了。瓦岱勒是第一个录取我的学校,因此我决定选择它,因为它是第一个肯定我的学校。关于瓦岱勒的回忆都是美好的:学生生活,高品质的理论和实践课程,当然还有我们知识渊博的教授。

  你能给我们讲一讲你的实习生活和你从中所学到了什么吗?: f7 }6 P' n! n
  我第一次为期四个月的实习是在位于巴黎第八街区的杜塞尔多夫餐馆(Jean-Claude Ferrero Restaurant),从那里我学到了经营美食餐厅所需具备的基本知识。
: D' x" r, U) s4 E- x) c6 _

& x' u4 L8 [3 R" Y  之后,大二的时候,我去了美国,在纽约四星级诺富特酒店(Novotel**** New York)实习。在酒店餐厅部实习的两个月期间,提高了我的美式发音也使我懂得了良好组织能力的重要性。仅仅一个月之后,我发现我在客房部一枝独秀,替代了正在度假的经理。在客房部的那两个月价值很大,因为我不得不学会如何管理比我年长的人。
& y) J+ a  k1 @4 o1 e) K# K' o8 P- n8 Y7 v- Q3 |
  那之后,我去了四星级的皇家蒙素酒店(Royal Monceau ***** )的宴会和研讨会部门,开始我长达半年第三次实习。那是1995年年底,当时很多人在法国罢工。这次实习教会我每个部门都很重要,只有齐心协力才能组织成功的活动。成本控制,厨房,服务,管理,销售部门:所有这些部门需要合作来达成目标。这个经历使我确信我的行业选择是正确的,同时也让我结识了很多非常了不起的人。. Z$ L% q- D0 P( p# Z) F

  你以你们班上第二名的优秀成绩毕业。毕业时你都得到了哪些工作机会呢?
1 w: `# }- J. O0 p# g  当时,服兵役是还是公民义务。所以当结束实习期时,我没能留在皇家蒙素酒店(Royal Monceau)工作。当我的实习期只剩一个月的时候,皇家蒙素酒店餐厅经理和韦尔特酒店(Hotel Vernet )总经理都向我发出工作邀请,都是很好的工作机会——在希尔顿星级酒店(Hilton Orlyfour-star Hotel)的餐厅部担任管理培训人员,或是在四星级的韦内特酒店担任管理审计师。我选择了后者——在韦内特酒店担任管理审计师。14个月的实习经历和瓦岱勒学院扬名海外的声誉是我如此出众的原因。

  2008年伊始,一个猎头公司联系我并提供了一份运营职位。当时,我正在做个人技能评估方案并即将成为一名父亲。因此我决定开发自己的销售潜能。

  对于瓦岱勒想当顾问的学生你有什么建议吗?
- x( R: D5 e' `% {( t/ |/ L4 P  m4 Z
  顾问是专门负责提出建议的人。这些建议要基于经验和对现实状况准确的分析而提出的。在我们部门,人们的经验和分析能力都随着时间而得到了提高。! r8 k+ ~# L( A( v2 l9 _

  因此,青年男女们,你们要用10年15年甚至是20年的时间四处走动,旅行,在中小型和大型企业工作,体验不同的经历。我也建议你们去正在扩展市场的奢侈品行业工作,在那工作你会遇到很多挑剔,严苛的顾客。这样你以后就能很轻松的适应任何工作。3 O0 n; ]- R" t1 s) u0 j& l9 _

  Z& ~9 ~: i- p4 i& u' Q4 [; j" O' S) a
  现在你对酒店与旅游行业有什么看法?你们在做好这些工作的同时能平衡好家庭生活吗?为什么?
! u3 B8 J7 h# H9 Q2 [' E  酒店与旅游业一直很好就业。而且你可以获得很多旅行的机会。另一方面无论是为公司工作还是为自己工作,80%的情况都是别人在度假而你在工作。因此,要平衡好工作和家庭生活并不容易,尤其是当你爱人不在这个领域工作的情况下就更不容易。这就是为什么趁年轻的时候尽可能多的工作如此重要的原因。经验和职业的改变使你有更加灵活的工作时间。

  你也是巴黎瓦岱勒校友俱乐部的大使,针对这个俱乐部你有什么计划吗,对瓦岱勒人而言这个俱乐部扮演怎样的角色,有什么样的作用?

2 B; ~; ~8 N1 _7 W  通过和瓦岱勒巴黎校区的密切合作,继续向学生和校友提出活动建议来扩展他们的网络。不要忘记今天的学生就是明天的瓦岱勒人。我期待在五月中旬在和尼姆校区的校友俱乐部的会议上和大使们讨论接下来的计划。在我看来,大使的作用首先是将瓦岱勒人结成联盟,不论他们是哪一年毕业的,通过开展交流活动使校友们轻松融洽的联系。

3 e. y8 c4 C7 h  eChristophe, can you tell us a bit about starting at Vatel?
% O3 z0 X! x2 n# q4 W! ]During my last year of high school, I decided to continue my studies in an area that I both liked and one where I would soon be able to start work. At that time, I was hesitating between the hospitality industry and computer sciences. So I did entry exams in both of these areas. As Vatel was the first school to have admitted me, I decided to go with the first ones who trusted me. I’ve only got fond memories of my time at Vatel: student life, the high quality of theoretical and practical courses, and of course, the professors we had.

Can you tell us about your internships and what you learned from them?/ v# o' e5 X" q' Y5 w/ F; }
I did my first four-month internship in the Jean-Claude Ferrero Restaurant, in the 8th district of Paris.  That introduced me to the basics required when running a gourmet restaurant.. i, r: X+ U6 y' y# G! `9 s

5 c9 X0 S/ _5 w5 JAfter that, in my second year, I went to the USA, to the Novotel**** New York.   The two months that I spent in the restaurant allowed me to perfect my “American” English and to understand the importance of being well organized. After just one month in the restaurant, I found myself alone in the room service department, replacing the manager, who was on vacation. The two months I spent in accommodations were also very valuable, and I had to learn how to manage people older than I was.
* W5 V8 R' e( `; k: y! [ ) K# B3 {& f! G3 w: s+ v0 T
After that, I went to the banquets and seminars department in the Royal Monceau ***** for my third internship that lasted six months.  That was at the end of 1995, at a time when a lot of people were on strike in France. This internship taught me the importance each department has so an event is a successful one. Cost control, kitchens, stewarding, administration and sales departments: we all had to work together to reach our goals. An experience that helped make me sure I had made the right choice while allowing me to meet a lot of great people!  1 D! ~* r' f+ L

You graduated second in your class.  What kind of opportunities did you have upon graduating?
% K8 Y0 v' {8 z% ^5 b, SAt that time, doing your military service was still an obligation. So when I finished my internship, I couldn’t stay at the Royal Monceau. Even though, when I only had a month left, the Royal Monceau Restaurant Manager and the Hotel Vernet General Manager both offered me great opportunities: management training in the restaurant at the Hilton Orlyfour-star Hotel, or a position as a management auditor at the four-star Hotel Vernet.   I chose the latter. These 14 months of internships and the reputation Vatel has was the reason I stood out.: B& W& B: f+ g/ a( D$ k

How did you get the job you are currently doing at Dehoux Conseils?
7 j* A! V; T- \7 j! K! d- OA headhunting agency contacted me at the very beginning of 2008 for an operational position.

What advice could you give to Vatel students who would also like to work as consultants?9 C/ G; j. @+ H: m: V# b
A consultant is a specialized adviser who carries out missions where he formulates recommendations. These recommendations are based on experience and a sound diagnostic of the situation. In our branch, experience and analytical capacities both increase as time goes by.6 m* M! M4 E: x: T! x
. y4 j4 @6 p9 ?
So, young men and women, move around, travel, work in small, medium sized and large facilities for 10, 15 or 20 years! I’d also recommend working in the luxury goods sector as it is a booming market with very demanding customers. After that, it becomes much easier to adapt yourself to any other branch.7 `9 T3 E* i!

In the mid-term, we’ve got the equipment of a five-star hotel in Paris as well as very interesting confidential files that are currently being validated. I’d also like to take some time out to prepare my Validation of Professional Experience file at Vatel.  Finally, in the long term, why not do the same job, but on another continent?

9 c9 D) H, D$ N6 Y/ D" \What is your opinion today of the Hospitality and Tourism sectors? Can you do these jobs and still have a balanced family life? Why?
, U. }+ \: u8 i8 zHospitality and Tourism are and always will be, fields where there are jobs to be had. In particular, they allow you to travel. On the other hand, whether you work for a company or for yourself, in 80% of the cases you’re working when other people are on vacation. So it’s not always easy to have a good work/family life balance, especially when your spouse doesn’t work in the same field. That’s why it’s so important to do as much as possible when you’re young. Experience and career changes then allow you to have jobs with more flexible hours.- f9 r0 t$ Y5 ~" f1 V) i9 B

You’re also the Ambassador of the Paris IDF Vatel Alumni Club. What projects do you have for the Club, and in your opinion, what role should it play for Vateliens?
! n1 o4 y' Y* C" a1 W* dIn close cooperation with Vatel Paris, the idea is to continue to propose events to students and alumni so that everyone can continue to expand their networks. You can’t forget that today’s students are tomorrow’s Vateliens. I’m looking forward to seeing my counterparts in Nimes during our next conference in the middle of May to discuss with them. In my opinion, the role an Ambassador plays is above all to federate Vateliens, whatever year they graduated in, by setting up networking events that are both relaxed and friendly.! k8 ^+ P' O9 r& N2 \
