MAX Tourism, a company that promotes talent

My name is Juan Pablo Ramírez Gan, I was born in Cuba and raised in Dominican Republic and live in Barcelona since September 2023, city that I already feel part of. In this article I will tell you about my academic internship at MAX Tourism, a company that opened its doors to me from the very first second.

It all started at the beginning of 2024, when I started applying for academic internships in tourism companies, while I was studying the Official Master’s Degree in Tourism Project Development at CETT Barcelona School of Tourism, Hospitality and Gastronomy. At that time, I was looking for an internship in Marketing & Communication, since it is an area in which I had experience in. And just as I started that process, I learned about an offer at MAX Tourism through my University.

The job interview and my first meeting with Valeska was very pleasant. I felt that from the first moment we “clicked” and had a beautiful connection. The interview was extremely relaxed, close, professional and full of enthusiasm. Precisely, these qualities would mark that working relationship between us. This picture was from our professional visit to PortAventura Business & Events beginning of May 2024.

MAX Tourism was a school! Thanks to this company, I learned about the tourism sector with a greater level of detail, and mainly the MICE and hospitality sectors. During my four months of internship, I had the freedom to undertake a wide variety of projects with Valeska, focused on the client and linked to email marketing, database management, text writing, among other topics.

Working with Valeska was a great honor for me. She is a professional with great acuity and judgment, extremely organized, disciplined, constant, focused and with great passion and experience within the MICE segment. Also, during my time at MAX Tourism, I was able to meet a very human Valeska, close to people, accomplished and authentic. I appreciate that time and professional learning with her.

On a personal level, in the future, I hope to continue to be linked to the field of tourism companies, always open to learning and adding value in various areas, in addition to Marketing and Communication. Today, I am excited about a wide variety of topics that I consider relevant, such as corporate social responsibility, sustainability, digital and project management. At this moment I am looking for a position in a touristic company with focus in Sustainability. I believe that all the professional contributions we make today, must be centered on the needs of the client, contributing to the sustainable development of people, the environment and the planet. I am open to work and gain more experience in this fields.
