USP: Assistance with Placements for Hotel Management Interns 2020

University of the South Pacific, 03 October 2019 – The School of Tourism & Hospitality Management at the University of the South Pacific successfully concluded its Annual Careers Fair at the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort & Spa on Friday, September 27th on World Tourism Day.

While industry reps are still reviewing their interviews with the Hotel Management interns and will confirm their intakes soon, the School extends an invitation to other industry partners to step forward to support the internship programme and mentor future tourism & hospitality personnel.

Currently there are 33 interns, 11 of which are final year interns, who upon completing their 12 months internship next year are free to continue as permanent employees. These students weren’t able to serve an internship this year due to personal reasons but have added value to their year by gaining work experience, OPERA training and Basic First Aid Training. They are computer literate and are recommended by the School.

Twenty two interns will be 3rd year students next year and will return after their 12 months internship in 2020 to complete their final year at USP (2021). The Bachelor of Commerce in Hotel Management is a 4-year programme.

Biodata for all these interns are available upon request.
