Exciting international hospitality opportunity for Orana youth

Regional Development Australia (RDA) Orana are encouraging hospitality students and employees in the Orana 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.

“We are incredibly excited to offer this internship opportunity to the Orana region. It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for any hospitality student or employee 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 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.

“Interns will participate in a 4 week intensive Korean language course on arrival, followed by a 20 week language and culture program. They 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.”

“The first 20 students will commence their internships 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.”

RDA Orana can be contacted on (02) 6885 1488. The deadline for expressions of interest is 31 March.
