Not every student can do an internship at The College Hotel. Prior to this, an extensive and critical selection procedure will take place from the management and hotel schools. All students work at the hotel for 10 to 20 weeks. This period enables students to actually make a development. Students come from different programs and are deployed in the various departments and behind the scenes of the hotel. Students from different school years work at the hotel. The senior students have a coaching role, because of this they can gain real managerial experience and get the most out of their internship period..
The ratio of employees and students is about 60% / 40%. The students are supervised and coached at all departments. Our employees do this with passion and are trained to fulfill this important role. All Young Professionals go through a step-by-step process with daily feedback moments. The coaches set targets each week. This could be creating the perfect Latte Macchiato, giving a suitable wine advice or making a sales calculation.
