Most of us have careers. From what I have heard, most of us are fortunate enough to ENJOY what we do. We're probably all pretty good at it, as well. What character traits make you good at your job? What in particular excites you about going to work every day? I'm a rooms operations manager at a conference hotel property. I act as a liasion between the sales staff, executive offices and rooms division employees. I also coordinate and implement most of the front office training programs and oversee staff in the rooms division. My job requires diplomacy, which I have in abundance. I have to be able to relate to all different departments of the hotel, make sure that all feel as though their needs are being attended to while ensuring that the bottom line is best for the hotel as a whole. I also have a flair for customer service, I can be charming when I have to be and the guests love it. Attention to detail? Check! Ability to multi-task and prioritize? Check! I have to be able to keep track of all the irons I have in the fire at any given moment. I come home at the end of the day with about 8 pens, 3 notepads, and countless scribbled notations in my pocket but somehow it all gets done on time and to the best of my ability. I love my job for so many reasons! Every day is different and exciting (sometimes the shoot-me-now kind of exciting, but what can you do?) I meet all varieties of people every day and make great contacts in the business world through my dealings with them. I thrive on a good challenge as well, so being able to have someone eating out of my hand when they were screaming obscenities just a moment before feels like a great accomplishment. The great treatment at restaurants and freebies is a nice perk too (Did I mention I also have to evaluate services for our concierge to recommend?)!

I saw the Pritzker's comment on another blog, SV, and cracked up! I used to work for Hyatt as well...
