Short Cuts:
On the SpotIf you worked at a hotel, what job would you want?

“I’d work in the sales department, despite the long hours and all the accompanying pressure. I like working with people and organizing things for them, and I would understand the details and where the meeting planner is coming from.”

Michael Blottenberger
Event Manager/Coordinator
Quest International
Annapolis Junction, Md.

“It would have to be general manager. There is a sense of power and control in that position, and the GM gets to have an overview of the property. Geographically, my hotel would be in Australia, which I love, probably in either Sydney or Cairns.”

Geri Kery
Operations Manager
Council on Tall Buildings & Urban Habitat
Bethlehem, Pa.

“As I both manage and know the world of convention organization, I would plump for being an events manager at a hotel or resort, being the focal point during their time at the hotel. I think it would be the only thing I would enjoy doing.”

Donna M. Glenn
Administrative Manager
Resort Hotel Association
Williamsburg, Va.
