Katelyn Fulk

Major: Hospitality Management


Minor/option/emphasis: Event Management

Company/Organization: Sodexo Pioneer
Company/Organization website: http://www.Sodexo.com
Destination: Johnston, Iowa
Timeframe: Summer

Advisor/Coordinator Email: celbert@iastate.edu

I was responsible for...
Provide supervision for multi-functional foodservice areas (sandwich stand, salad bar, grill, hot foods, etc.) at an account/unit to ensure client satisfaction and retention for the Company. Implements business practices in order to uphold Company mission and values. Contribute to account revenue and operating profit contribution through the implementation of services and creation of opportunities for growth.

I accomplished...
Getting exposed to the corporate food service industry and developing relationships with all the different clients throughout Pioneer Sodexo. This is something that was so new to me in the beginning but has become so familiar and it has really showed me what path I want to pursue post graduation!

I learned...
Having a positive attitude makes all the world of difference in any situation! I’ve been in many situations this summer where everyone was complaining and being so negative that being the only person with a positive attitude really shows the type of person you are. People respect you more when you work hard and they know that they can count on you to be there and be ready.

Advice for others...
Work hard no matter what you’re doing. Do the jobs that no one else wants to do. The smallest details do not go unnoticed and it’s what sets you apart from everyone else.
