There is no doubt that having experience in the hospitality industry prior to getting out in the real world is completely beneficial. Hospitality majors need a lot of experience and internships in order to really understand the industry. There is never a dull moment within the Hospitality Industry and it is so important to have great personal skills in order to succeed in this field.
Stronger Advantage in Work Experience
When students upon graduation have previous work experience, they are already one step ahead of ones who do not have such experience. It is important to have an internship while pursuing your major that way you develop necessary skills for a management position later on. Internships allow you to experience real life situations to help you solve problems when you go to apply for your first job after college.
Many students don’t completely know what they want to do while in college. Some come into college with a specific set plan, others are uncertain when it comes to a certain major. Internship experience allows the student to explore possible options to really get a feel of what that job is like.
Don’t ever pass up an opportunity to network with industry professionals. An internship can get your foot in the door to create a good relationship with the company in case you should want to return back to the company in the future for a career. Networking can also play into the fact that through your current internship, you can also meet other professionals working with your company that may want to do future business with you or hire you for your next internship.
Internship opportunities provide students endless learning opportunities. Internships teach you the necessary skills for your next job opportunity. Students are able to understand business techniques as well as how a business works. Different companies use different software and systems, therefore, students will learn how each system works and operates differently in order to succeed in the business.
