Ellen from Germany (53448) March, April

Tourism | Year of birth: 1991 | Arrival date: 01.03.-15.04.2018 | Length of stay: 6 months


From time to time Ellen helped a friend in a hotel, when there was personal deficiency. In one of her semester breaks she also worked at a kiosk in a swimming bath. Therefore, she doesn’t have long lasting work experience in this field of work, but she is reliable, willing to learn something new and looking forward to cope with new challenges. Besides Ellen is experienced in living away from home for a longer time, as she did a semester abroad in Finland and lived in different cities during her studies.


Ellen would like to gain experience outside of Germany and it´s a big wish of her to work in a foreign country, learn a new language and get a new perspective. She likes working together with diverse and multicultural people and the different areas of hotel work are very exciting for her. One of the reasons why Ellen chose Norway as her destination is the future of her choice of work. After returning home Ellen plans on doing a practical training at the German-Norwegian-Board of Trade and for doing that you have to speak Norwegian well. Ellen would like to work in this area later, why it is a great wish of mine to learn the language and get to know the life in Norway.
