Hotel Jobs in China

Internship, Paid
 
You can choose to work for 3 months or longer at the reception, in customer service or in other departments of 4 to 7 star hotels in China. The hotel jobs are possible in big cities like Beijing and Shanghai, as well as on the tropical island of Hainan in the South China Sea.
 
 

Project Details

 
The hotels are city hotels and hotels at tourist sites in Beijing, Shanghai, Sanya, Hangzhou, Ningbo, Jiuzhaigou, Chongqing, Sozhou, Kunshan, Xian and Yangshuo.
 
The hotels include the Hotel Fortune Group, Holiday Inn, Crown Plaza, Intercontinental, Days Inn, Sheraton, Howard Johnson, Shangri-La and independent hotels and resorts of high class.
 
In general, you work at the reception, in customer relations or in the service area where you can use your foreign language skills and interact with international guests.
 
Prerequisites include good command of spoken and written English, excellent service mentality and impeccable way of dealing with hotel guests, hotel employees and supervisors. Other languages are an advantage, especially Russian.

In addition to the major cities, the tropical island of Hainan in the South China Sea, China's southernmost province, called "the Hawaii of China”, is increasingly becoming popular as a holiday destination. Especially around the city of Sanya, there are now many luxury beach resorts and tourist entertainment, as well as rural tourism and outdoor adventure. Tourists from many countries, including German, Swiss, Austrian, and several other European tourists do not need visas for short holidays in Hainan. In 2012 32.4 million Chinese tourists and 816,000 foreign tourists traveled to Hainan.
 
The commitment on duration is 3 months. Accommodation and compensation are provided by the hotels; you get a compensation of RMB 2200-4000 ( 270-500 € / 340-625 USD). The higher values are for internships of longer durations (> 6 months).

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs)

 
Are there fixed start dates for the project, which I must adhere to?

Yes, this is possible and we will give you our best rates. Just let us know when you arrive and leave and we will let you know the costs.
