When is the application deadline?
An ideal applicant must apply 3 months prior to when you actually want to go. The more time our team have in our hands, the better the company/organisation we will be able to confirm you with for your learning and development in your interest. We do have limited seats and more applicants, so the sooner you apply, the better your odds.
Do I need to know the multiple languages?
If you know any languages other than English, such as German, French, Russian, Chinese then it’s definitely a value add to the hotels. However if you do not know then it’s absolutely okay, we find hotels that are comfortable with conversing in a global language (English in particular) so that it’s easier for the intern as well as the hotel to discuss, mentor and implement roles and responsibilities and communicate within the team.
What hotels do you partner with?
We keep in mind that this should be a learning experience for the intern. So, we are partnered with 4 star hotels, 5 star hotels and exotic properties that have guests almost throughout the year to provide an enriching experience to our interns’ on ground working experience.
What type of accommodations will be offered?
We always provide students with fully furnished places to stay so that it’s easier for them to be comfortably adapt into. Our policy is to not keep more than 2 interns in one room, if you would like to take a single occupancy room, you need to inform us during the screening call. We keep the interns in close vicinity to the hotels as interns generally choose to do a 3 month – 6 month internship, so staying close to the hotels is an added advantage. This also shortens the travel time to the place of work which is beneficial in the long term. However, if an intern has a specific location in mind we can customise and cater to the needs of an intern.
Are these internships paid?
In Mauritius Hotel Management Internships upto 3 months or shorter duration are unpaid in nature. For 3 months or longer duration we do offer in many cases paid internship However Majority Hotel Management internships in Bali are offered for a duration of 3-6 months and they are unpaid internships due to the visa regulations of the country. Work-based learning is regarded as an educational opportunity, and more enriching & value driven experiences as international internships, the same is applied for Mauritius and Bali’s work ecosystem by our team for you. Nevertheless, in cases, some interns can and do receive remuneration while other students do receive in-kind rewards and recognitions from their respective organizations of internships depending upon their performance, etc However, our team does not make payment of stipend a priority when finalizing internship in the domain of student's element of interest and we therefore recommend that you assume the internships of students will be unpaid for 3 months or shorter duration.
Is there a minimum age to attend corporate internships and how many hours and day a week would I have to work?
Yes, you need to be at least 18+ years old or a university student. You are expected to do a 8-9 hour work shift and 6 days a week, only 1 additional Saturday in a month is off, remaining all Saturdays are working. There are three hotel working shifts and you would be rotated monthly, bi-weekly depending upon the hotel’s operations and working.
