Internships, a capitalization of professional experiences

Vatel is proactive in obtaining internships for its students

The relationship you have professionals in the hospitality field is one of the cornerstones resulting in finding that all important first job.

Internships allow students

  • to experience reality in the workplace,
  • to gain experience in their future jobs,
  • to acquire essential experience required for an international career

 

Since 1981, each Vatel School has been selecting internships for its students based on what year they are in and how they will best be able to assimilate and apply the know-how and skill sets they have studied the previous year.

These internships are mandatory and comply with academic regulations:
At the end of their undergraduate studies, students will have spent a minimum of eight months in operational internships.
Should they continue with graduate studies, they will have 6 extra months of experience in managerial positions.

Internships are also a springboard leading to future employment for students : as soon as they graduate, they are already true professionals, capable of adapting themselves to complex situations in an international environment.

This is why Vatel

  • ensures personal follow-up of its students
  • carefully selects its host hotels
  • helps students to define their professional projects
  • sets up job interview simulation exercises

"Our customers give us very positive feedback and we are aware of the self-confidence that interns develop while working with our employees.  This is the best proof of their passion and commitment."

 

 

M. LeralluJean-Pierre Lerallu, Deputy Director, Hotel de Charme Les Airelles, Courchevel - France
"We started by trusting Vatel to recruit our interns, as this school ensures their presence from the beginning till the end of our four month winter season, which was essential for us. After that, we were really satisfied with the way these students took their internship seriously. [...] Because of that, the more involved they were, the more responsibilities we gave them, and they had a better internship. We see our Vatel partnership as a true exchange."
