Internship Placement Guidelines
The benefits of an internship
cannot be stressed enough. Data shows that graduates who
have internship experience get jobs quicker and at a higher
average salary than those without. Through an internship,
you will gain a better perspective of the resort and
hospitality industry. An internship will give you a greater
sense of confidence in your abilities and conviction in your
chosen profession and provide you with personal and
professional benefits that cannot be gained in the
While the internship is a
great learning experience, so is the process of obtaining
Please review the following
guidelines to assist you with internship placement:
Plan on completing your
internship experience during the fall or winter semester.
Do not plan on completing an internship in the winter months
in the Costa Brava. This is due to the seasonal nature of
this area. Many local facilities reduce staffing
levels and cut back work hours for year-round employees’
hours during the winter and the number of positions
available for interns decreases.
- Be flexible and open minded
about where you want to work. Work at an internship site
that is committed to mentoring you and to helping you learn
and grow. Do not automatically assume that a big name
facility equates to a quality learning experience. Be aware
of the experience that can be gained by working at a lesser
known property with good management and systems in place.
- Have an excellent cover
letter and resume. Ask the Head of Studies for advice
and come up with an appealing introduction about yourself.
You can also check the EuroPass page here.
- Plan your interview outfit.
An employer is not expecting you to wear branded and
expensive clothes but take the time to think about what
might cause a good impression following the standards of the
environment where you are going to work. Don't take the risk
of being misjudged in your first interview.
- Be very prepared for
interviews. Employers are seeking enthusiastic, bright and
motivated students to fill internship positions, and don’t
expect you to have previous experience. Thus, in interviews,
your ability to communicate these qualities including your
background, skills, talents, and willingness to work hard
and do a good job is key.
- Make a great impression with
all that you do in the program. The following
questions will help you to structure an interview when
applying for an internship position. Answers would help you
to give employers general information about your commitments
Do I attend and actively
participate in class?
Do I dress professionally?
Do I treat your fellow
students and professors with respect?
Am I friendly, positive and
Do I complete my assignments
in a timely and thoughtful manner?
Have I given faculty and staff
- Start early with the
process! Most properties are putting together their
staffing plans for the season in October. Inquiries for
placement need to start as early as possible.
For A Successful Internship Experience:
- Arrive on time for work.
Always plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early for your
- Dress for success. Your clothing should always be
pressed. Your shoes should be shined.
- Read your facility’s Policies and Procedures Manual.
- Bring a positive “can do” attitude to your workplace.
Volunteer to do more than what is asked of you.
If you have some idle time, fold towels, dust fixtures,
reorganize, etc. Your positive outlook, extra effort and
enthusiasm will not go unnoticed.
- Introduce yourself to all members of the team. This
includes people outside your immediate area such as the
sales director, the chef, the accountant etc.
Ask them questions about themselves and what they do.
The relationships you form will make your current experience
more rewarding and will be invaluable to your career further
down the road.
- Meet all of the requirements of your internship in a
timely manner. Before you go on your internship, you
should be aware of all due dates for monthly check-ins and
the final report deadline. You are responsible not
only for your own assignments, but also for making sure your
supervisor turns in the internship agreement and evaluation
