EASB’s final-year Hospitality & Tourism Management student Ms. Jacy Nong heading to The Peninsula Tokyo (a world’s top hotel) for internship in October 2017.
After passing 2 rounds of stringent interviews and selection processes conducted by The Peninsula Tokyo, Ms. Jacy Nong will soon be starting her 6-month internship at this luxury Five-Star hotel set in the upscale Marunouchi business district and within walking minutes of the shopping capital of Ginza in Tokyo, Japan.
The Peninsula Tokyo was named Best Hotel in Tokyo for 2017, voted by Travel + Leisure readers globally in its annual World's Best Awards. Earlier in the year, the hotel was named a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel for its second consecutive year, one of only three in the city to receive the coveted ranking.
Impressed by Ms Jacy’s fluent English, strong foundational knowledge of the Hospitality & Tourism Management industry and a deep commitment to the internship programme, Ms. Jacy stood out among the many applicants and was selected by the hotel’s Assistant Director of Human Resource for this highly sought-after internship opportunity.
Said Ms. Jacy, a 22-year-old student from China who is currently doing the final year of her BA (Hons) International Hospitality & Tourism Management programme (awarded by the Queen Margaret University, UK) at EASB.
In the first 2 months, Ms. Jacy will be attached to the House-keeping Department to understand the room-types. In the 3rd month, she will be exposed to the duties at the Front Office. Upon good performance, there will be further opportunities to be attached to other departments and be exposed to more complex systems in the hotel.
Jacy is confident that she will be able to perform well, citing that her learning at EASB and pervious internship at the Capthorne Hotel Singapore (also arranged by EASB) during her second year of study have provided her with useful skills and experiences.
EASB will be in touch with Jacy to see how she is progressing there and we wish her all the best!
With EASB’s wide network of top hotel chains in the world, the institution has been providing its students with high quality internships every year, preparing them for good managerial career opportunities upon graduation.
