Interns can work in multiple departments at the hotel and can specify their interests; however, foreign interns are usually put in functions that are customer facing so that they can use their communication skills.
Requirements are fluency in spoken and written English, strong customer service orientation and skills and the ability to establish direct and amicable working relationship with colleagues and managers. Additional language skills are also an advantage.
