Aston J. Barnicoat realized the importance of international experiences and travelling at a young age. After having the opportunity to participate in cultural exchange programs himself, the invaluable life lessons and enriching experiences drove him to develop a program that would better benefit candidates searching for professional opportunities abroad. Anchored in hospitality education and training, the International Trainee Network (ITN) was born with the purpose to provide culturally immersive experiences and world-class hospitality training to young professionals from all over the world.
There’s no one better to guide students through an exchange program with ITN than Charlotte Guyot. After completing her J-1 program in Los Angeles, CA with ITN, Charlotte Guyot joined the team as the European Partner Manager at ITN in Paris, France! In her position, she is in charge of building strong relationships with their Hospitality School partners and helping candidates through the streamline J-1 Exchange Program application process from beginning to end.
Located in the Los Angeles office and the Texas office respectively, Tiffany Zarrin and Nicolas Jones are responsible for assisting young professionals and students to visit the United States to participate in ITN’s hospitality exchange programs. A unique and unforgettable experience, the program allows participants to integrate themselves into local American communities, businesses, and take part of the culture. Not only this, but they can take the experience back home and on their lifelong professional journey.
