Our internship program is designed for hospitality business students who have a primary focus or interest in the Food and Beverage Division within a hotel/resort/conference center. Interns will be required to work a 40 hour/week shift in the Food and Beverage Department typically for a period of 10-12 weeks.
Our Food & Beverage internship assignment is a rotational experience and will include classroom training and on-the-job experience in a minimum of two areas within the Food & Beverage Division of the hotel. Additionally, interns will receive mid-season and end-of-season reviews and each intern will be assigned a property manager as a mentor.
Our expectations are that candidates selected will truly want to learn and experience first hand their areas of focus while also learning what guest service is all about within the hospitality industry. We expect a willingness to work in all aspects of the department while maintaining excellent service standards.
