I still remember calling Internship International occasionally with questions and never being disappointed; everyone there was very cooperative. I would like to again thank Mr. Mennicken and the staff of Internship International who helped me in making my dreams come true.

Internship International is an excellent company for excellent students who want to excel in the Hospitality Industry.

I am Patel and I have completed my Bachelor Degree in Hotel and Tourism Management from a Hotel Management School in India. I heard about Internship International through my school's intranet and after my first conversation with Mr. Mennicken, I felt as though I was talking to a friend because he did not misguide or mislead me; he was honest. Once I put my trust in Internship International, I was encouraged to contact them any time I had a question and always received a quick response. One of the best qualities about Internship International is that I did not have to pay anything until I got an offer letter. I was not forced or pressured into accepting this training position. After I accepted my position at the Intercontinental Hotel, Mr. Mennicken advised me on how to save my money during my training and was always available to answer all of my questions. Now that I am in the United States, Mr. Mennicken is still in touch with me and my training site to make sure that everyone is happy.

I achieved one of the goals in my career!

My name is Daria and I am from a Hotel School in Spain. I decided to contact Internship International regarding my year of practical training after my second year as an International Hotel Management student. It seemed so quick and easy for them to find a placement for me. The resort where I am training is one of the leading resorts in the world and I was so excited to train there! After a few days my enthusiasm lessened; I found myself far from home, with people speaking a different language, with different views and following different rules. The communication was sometimes hard and everything seemed so confusing that I felt like I would never learn. The road to success is not always easy; it takes hard work and frustrating days. Months have passed and I’m thankful when I look back and feel stronger and more confident looking ahead. I’ve learned a great deal in my first few months from computer programs to various front desk tasks and communication skills. The way to success is not only a way of victories, but also obstacles it is these obstacles that prepare us for future victories. I am thankful to Internship International for helping me to reach one of the many successes I plan to achieve in my career!

Internship International helped me get a training position in the hotel of my dreams!

I am Alena from Belarus. I came to the USA as a trainee to get practical experience in Tourism Management. It is at the university that we were taught that America was a leader in tourism business. Internship International provided me with a trainee position at a hotel in Miami Beach. Arriving in the USA was a challenge because I was alone and there were so many new and unknown things ahead. Going from a cold autumn into a real tropical summer seemed to be a fairy tale; my dreams had come true! The hotel where I train is one of the most famous, popular and remarkable hotels in Miami Beach. People working here are really friendly, kind and reliable; the hotel staff is one large family where everyone is attentive and helpful to each other. Being a new trainee I was treated very friendly and was offered a lot of help. Celebrities often stay at my hotel and I am looking forward to Keanu Reeves coming here to take some photos with me!
