I started my adventure in Expedia through an internship. After two months and a second interview, the company offered me a permanent position as Market Associate.
Expedia is a fast-growing and really dynamic company, characterized by great flexibility and a truly friendly environment. There is a strong focus over employees’ development on both hard and soft skills through recurrent coaching activities and trainings.
A lot of opportunities are created in terms of both vertical growth and horizontal moves allowing employees to continuously challenge themselves, learn and consolidate both the know-how acquired and the individual professional path.
I am really honored to be part of such a company, allowing to feel and breath the spirit of a typical US company in the very heart of Rome!
