"The Ascent Graduate Journey gave me the chance to fully understand the world of hospitality. The opportunity to spearhead various projects and attend management meetings has made me appreciate the key role of each team member in ensuring that all hotel operations run smoothly. With the hospitality industry being so broad, you need people that support you and ensure that you do not sway in the wrong direction. If you are a goal-driven and passionate hospitality enthusiast who is not afraid to get out of their comfort zone, then this programme is for you!"

"I joined Minor as trainee at Qasr al Sarab Desert Island Resort by Anantara where I discovered my passion for Front Office. Since then I had the opportunity to join the Ascent Graduate Journey where I continued my learning journey in Malaysia, Maldives and eventually Qatar, then in Abu Dhabi at Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Al Yamm Villa Resort. I am now in Vietnam as Villas Manager for the opening team at the beautiful Anantara Quy Nhon”

"I believe that Ascent Graduate Journey is perfect for anyone seeking growth and development. My journey began in Thailand at Anantara Si Kao Resort, where I learned all the nuts and bolts by rotating through every department. I then specialised in Revenue Management and my next destination was Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar, Oman. The journey has prepared me well for the industry and ready to face any challenge to come."

"Two years back, I joined Minor Hotels as a Front Desk Agent in Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels By Tivoli in Doha. I was selected for the Ascent Graduate Journey, which enabled me to grow my career at a faster pace. In this journey I had the opportunity to get more experience and knowledge in various departments where I hadn’t had the chance to work before, and I learned the responsibilities and pressures other departments experience. The Programme gave me a life-changing opportunity to grow myself and develop my career under the supervision of professionals and experienced department heads. Minor Hotels changed my life and my way of thinking about my goals. What are you waiting for? Come and join us."
