Alumni Tale: Linda Hoang ’14

What did you study at UNH?

Tourism and Hospitality

What were you doing one year out of college?

It’s only been a little more than eight months out of college but thanks to my collegiate experiences and Megan Hales, assistant director of student engagement and recent graduate programs), I landed my current job at the historic Omni Parker House Hotel in Boston as a PBX operator.

What are you doing now?

At the Omni Parker House, in addition to working as a PBX Operator, I am training to work in Concierge. I have gained an great amount of knowledge from UNH and this hotel and it has reflected in my work capabilities.

How do you feel your time at UNH has had an impact on where you are today?

If I were not a member and former president of the Advancement Student Ambassador Program with Megan Hales as our leader, I would not be where I am today. ASAP is a group of driven UNH students working together to help strengthen post-graduate careers. We traveled to the Omni Parker House for the Executive Forum, where I met general manager and UNH alum John Murtha.  He offered his business card and suggested to apply for a job at the hotel. Thanks to this networking experience, I was happily employed at a full-time job before even graduating!
