РЕБЯТА!ПЕРЕВЕДИТЕ ГРАМОТНО ПОЖАЛУЙСТА!:Henry Howell has been working as a ski guide at the Austrian resort of St Anton.
Since leaving school he has worked each winter in the Alps and each summer at a
resort in Greece.
“I have an unusual weekly schedule. Sundays are spent at the airport picking up our
new guests. Mondays and Tuesdays are spent guiding our guests around the resort.
On Wednesdays I'm behind the customer service desk, Thursday I have off, Friday
and Saturday nights I’m working behind the bar.
soon as I left school I made a decision to go abroad. (1) My first job
was working as a barman at the Italian resort of Clavier, and,
since then, I’ve done everything from laundry boy to restaurant supervisor.

like to go and work at one of their Greek centres. As I came
from a sailing background, (3) I started teaching windsurfing.
I've visited lots of Europe and I definitely feel I have a career path in the making
because my boss really looks after the staff.
To do well in this job you need a bit of stamina but, most of all, you need to be good
at dealing with people. (4) I was let go but I quickly joined IBM in a similar role. I’m there to sort out any
our clients have and to make sure they have a great holiday.” _Peter

the right attitude is if I wanted to change my career.
I applied to
Dartmouth Business School, one of the oldest in the US, and was lucky
enough to get a place. At the end of the course I was offered a job at
New York office.
Then I applied for a job in Atlanta. It was a very
interesting time for me - my work was very stimulating. Unfortunately,
the money for the project ran out and (6) I needed a formal business
qualification . It was IBM* that sent me back to work in its UK office.
It wasn't exciting so I left.
When I came back to the UK for a job
interview and (7) even though I’d been to one the US’s most famous
business schools and had worked
with some top companies, they were
only interested in my O Levels. it was crazy.
