Mandatory internship for B.A. in tourism & travel management

Shalom everybody :)

I also did my internship with Abraham Hostels & Tours and I was more than happy with it!
In my case the internship was part of my studies and I had to do it to complete my B.A. in Tourism and Travel Management.
The team behind Abraham Hostels & Tours has been very open-minded, nice and flexible from the very start. Since I wanted to continue living in Haifa during the internship, they offered me to work partly from home, which was a perfect solution for me.

I was basically the assistant for the manager of the Jesus Trail, which is part of the Abraham Tours department.
In my first week I got to know the hostels and some of the tours. After that I hiked the Jesus Trail myself to get to now the "product". The tasks I had during this internship were very diverse and reached from answering customer requests, preparing booking confirmations, communicating with hotels and suppliers as well as taking care of the social media performance to having the Jesus Trail orientation meetings with the hikers themselves.
In doing so I could experience the whole development from a booking request to the actual journey of the customer with their feedback in the end of each booking process.
I had a lot of fun fulfilling these task, but also spending time with the team behind Abraham Hostels & Tours. They are very professional, open-minded and nice people and I felt very welcome right from the start.

Thanks a lot for this experience, I had a blast!


DEUTSCH:
Pflichtpraktikum für den Bachelor Abschluss in Tourism & Travel Management

Shalömchen ;)

Auch ich habe mein Praktikum bei Abraham Hostels & Tours absolviert und war mehr als zufrieden!
In meinem Fall handelte es sich um eine Pflichtpraktikum als Teil meines Studiums und war notwendig um meinen Bachelor in Tourism & Travel Management zu beenden.
Das Team hinter Abraham Hostels & Tours war von Beginn an sehr offen, nett und flexibel. Da ich während des Praktikums weiterhin in Haifa wohnen bleiben wollte, boten sie mir an teilweise von zu Hause zu arbeiten, was für mich die perfekte Lösung war.

Ich war im Wesentlichen eine Assistentin des Jesus Trail Managers, welcher Teil der Abraham Tours - Abteilung ist.
In meiner ersten Woche habe ich zunächst die Hostels und einige der Touren kennengelernt.
Daraufhin bin ich den Jesus Trail selbst gewandert um das "Produkt" kennenzulernen.
Meine Aufgaben des Praktikums waren sehr vielseitig und reichten von der Beantwortung von Kundenanfragen, der Vorbereitung von Buchungsbestätigungen über Kommunikation mit den Hotels und Leistungsträgern sowie die Betreuung des Social Media Auftritts bis hin zu den Jesus Trail-Orientierungs-Treffen mit den Wanderern selbst.
Auf diesem Weg konnte ich die komplette Entwicklung von einer Buchungsanfrage bis zur Reise erfahren und mit der Rückmeldung der Kunden nach der Wanderung abschließen.
Es hat mir großen Spaß gemacht diese Aufgaben zu erfüllen, aber auch Zeit mit der Belegschaft hinter Abraham Hostels & Tours zu verbringen. Sie sind alle sehr professionelle, offene und freundliche Menschen, bei denen ich mich von Anfang an wohl gefühlt habe.

Vielen Dank für diese Erfahrung, ich hatte eine wunderbare Zeit!

The jesus trail, internship

I interned with the Jesus Trail for 3 months. I saw many incredible things and experienced many extraordinary people. To explore the Galilee, and to see Nazareth through the eyes of a local is, perhaps, a once in a lifetime experience.

The first time I saw the Sea of Galilee I was overcome with emotion. As I stood atop an extinct volcano and took in the breathtaking scenery I felt connected to thousands of years of history. Here I was looking at the lake which had been the contemplation of pilgrims for centuries — my own ancestors had pilgrimages to this Land and had seen the same views decades earlier.

The Trail connected me to nature, connected me to Spirituality, and connected me to people. The staff were very supportive and helped me along my journey; always quick to facilitate my needs, and to make sure I had a fulfilling placement.

The work was interesting and varied. From maintenance, to hiking, social media, marketing and orienteering. It was satisfying to hear the clients testimonies after they had successfully hiked the Trail.

For people interested in history, Israel, The Bible, cultures or nature; this is the internship for you.

Special thanks to: Gal, Suraida, Mark and Naama.
