Deadline extended for Marriott hospitality internships in Korea

Regional Development Australia (RDA) Orana is strongly encouraging regional hospitality students and employees to speak with them about an exciting internship opportunity abroad. The J W Marriott Hotel in Seoul, South Korea is offering up to 20 students a six-month internship to work in one of the world’s most exclusive hotels. The deadline for expressions of interest has just been extended to 30 April.

“We are incredibly excited to offer this internship opportunity to the region. It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for hospitality students or employees, or indeed anyone who wants to increase their industry skills, as well as add an impressive international experience to their resume,” said Felicity Taylor-Edwards, CEO of RDA Orana.

“The internships will commence in August or September this year, so planning is well underway. I would encourage prospective interns to contact us as soon as possible to discuss further, to ensure they don’t miss out on this invaluable experience.”

The internships are open to people 18-30 who are currently studying or working in the hospitality industry. A qualification in the hospitality industry is preferred, but not essential.

“The interns will spend 40 hours per week in the Marriott, learning about all aspects of front-of-house hotel management. They will participate in a 4 week intensive Korean language course on arrival, followed by a 20 week language and culture program. Interns will also be partnered with a Korean ‘buddy’,” said Ms Taylor-Edwards.

“Due to RDA Orana’s strong international partnerships and the opportunities under the Free Trade Agreement, interns will be offered discounted accommodation at Seoul’s Sangmyung University. The Marriott will also offer students a subsidy to assist with living expenses.”

RDA Orana can be contacted on (02) 6885 1488.
