5-star hotel conducts internship programme
Dubai, July 18, 2009
The Al Bustan Rotana Dubai, a Dubai-based five-star hotel, recently conducted internship programmes for students from hotel schools, imparting experience in dealing with guests as well as learn about the five star property’s operations.
The hotel’s employee development department assisted students from the Emirates Academy, Raffles Campus, Dubai Men’s College, French School Dubai, and the German School in Dubai.
Furthermore, interns from international hotel schools such as Les Roches, Swiss Hotel Management School, Glion, Institute of Hotel Management, India and others had the chance to work for six months in the hotel, gaining actual hospitality exposure that equips them with valuable knowledge about the whole hospitality system.
“The programme has my full support,” said Justine Ormandy, Rotana’s area director for employee development. “I believe that it helps students get a realistic outlook and helps them put theory into practice.”
“It also provides students with the opportunity to talk to people doing the job and get their point of view. For the company, we can build relationships for the future,” he added.
“When we look after our trainees well, they go and talk to their friends about it and we build our reputation. It also helps us see how student’s expectations are changing, get insights through their presentations and keep up to date with the market. It’s great to see the confidence grow in the trainees when they complete their training.”
“The credit also goes to our committed Al Bustan Rotana’s assistant director of employee development, Sharon Fernandes for her commitment, to the hotel’s department heads as well as to our well-trained departmental trainers,” Ormandy concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
