Thailand: Paid Hospitality & Culinary Internship
Our hospitality internship program will provide you with the opportunity to immerse into one of Southeast Asia’s beautiful countries. International resort chains and 5-star hotels are available for you to have a great time in Thailand. As most of our partner hotels are international chains, they are in constant search for students from all over the world that can meet and receive their worldwide guests.
This hospitality internship program in Thailand will give you the opportunity to work in one of these hotels in diverse service positions and with the benefits that most hotels provide to their permanent staff and interns. Hotels will provide you with meals, uniform, training, cash compensation and in some cases even with housing so you don’t have to worry about anything before you’re arrival.
– Visa: A big perk of our program is that VISA procedures are taken care of by the hotels. They will provide you with a sponsorship that will allow you to obtain the visa documents that you will need in order to undertake an internship in Thailand. Depending on the hotel, visa fees might have to be covered by the student.
– Compensations: Generally hotels will give you a shared housing where you will be able to interact and live together with other interns, either national or international and full-time employees of the hotel. This will give you the opportunity to create life-long relationships and also will help you in the process of adaptation with the culture and country and even hotel environment. After all, who said we had enough friends already? Some of the other benefits of our internship program in Thailand are that duty meals are also provided by the hotel; sometimes even the third meal in the day is provided! So you can use your benefit #3 in some traveling and enjoying all the things that Thailand has to offer. Cash compensations are also provided by the hotel; usually a student will get paid around 5,000 THB to 10,000 THB which is a good amount of money considering that you can eat at a gourmet restaurant for 8 USD. (270 TBH).
– Location: Openings for this hospitality internship program in Thailand are located throughout the country. The internship placement process is based on your profile, experience, positions of interest and, openings at the moment of your application. The locations where most of our interns are placed are: Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pattaya and Phuket but also, we can place you geographically in other places that will represent a benefit for you and your career.
