The PhotoHotel School is not just an intermediate step towards departure. The school is a unique experience in which you find out about the company, you learn the profession of the hotel photographer and photo consultant, you know your future colleagues and you know yourself better. Depending on the training period in which you are assigned, the PhotoHotel School may last between 1 and 3 weeks.
The training course follows an intensive learning program. Therefore, the free time exists around the lunch breaks and in the evening, after finishing the courses. The information ranges from photo practice and sales techniques, to the payroll and commissioning system, to French and German courses that include the main conversations that a hotel photographer or photo advisor has in their destination.
After you participate in the online interview, you will receive an answer if you are accepted in the training period. Depending on the time you applied, the next training period can take place in 2 weeks or 2 months. For example, usually, the training courses take place in February, March, April, May and at certain times during the summer when unforeseen situations occur.
The training stage takes place in Brașov County, Săcele, Valea Doftanei area. The accommodation is made in the Photohotel's partner hotels, and the rooms and apartments are shared with other colleagues, depending on the number of beds available.
