The responses like the ones ad and Groupgm gave, are respones I come across a lot. Nothing but respect for the both of you, by reading your posts on this forum, I know you have a lot of experience and are very knowledgeable about the business.
But it is not very encouraging to study hard for a certain amount of years, and then come across more 'old-school' seniors that will say to you: you're not a manager, you're a post-graduate. You can only be a manager when you're more experienced.
I'm not saying that only study cuts it (cause it definitely doesn't) but only experience doesn't cut it anymore either. How many of us have not been held back by superiors thinking that way and therefor not giving us a chance to promote because we're not experienced enough? Whether we're capable or not, for them it's the years in the field that count.
Anyway, that was a little off-topic. Sorry for that! And Bee, why don't you just fill in the position you have? E.g. you're a management trainee, you fill that in. You're a F&B manager, you fill that in. Not really difficult...
