I am an IT consultant by trade but am taking the year off to hopefully work in Banff. In the past I have taken a break from the travel (usually Sunday to Thursday every week) and when I do so I often like to work in other areas.
The most enjoyable job was the time I spent working for a wine boutique in Calgary. My business is customer service. I work with all kinds of people from interns to CEO's and make my living providing customer service. In the past these skill have transferred successfully to the service industry and I am hopeful to ply my skills in Banff this season.
Worked the till, helped customers with wine suggestions, took inventory, ordered stock, rotated stock, built displays, poured wine samples and waited at tasting events.
