I’ve had many part-time jobs in Yangon, including decorating and air-con servicing, earning 60,000 MMK (38 CHF) per month. Before hearing about the hospitality training organised by Swisscontact, I felt lost in life. I wanted to be a waiter as I’m a good communicator and passionate about serving people. After attending a one-week preparatory course and a seven-week hospitality course, learning theoretical and practical skills in a real hotel environment, I successfully applied for a full-time job at the Silver Green Hotel with the support of my instructor, and was quickly promoted to supervisor. The skills and experiences gained from the training prepared me for my new responsibilities. I’m so happy to have this respectable job. I have a steady monthly income of 180,000 MMK (150 CHF), live well, and can now support my family. I see a bright future ahead due to Swisscontact’s training. Without this opportunity, I don’t think I could’ve achieved so much in my life.
