AIFS Abroad Internships in Hospitality.

Why a Hospitality Management Internship Abroad is Right for You 

Gaining a profound understanding of Hospitality Management within a global context is pivotal for your long-term career success. Our international Hospitality Management internships are crafted to broaden your horizons while equipping you with vital professional skills. We tailor our internships abroad to align perfectly with your existing experience, educational background, and future aspirations.  

We advocate for a hands-on approach, urging employers to minimize “administrative tasks” and instead provide you with engaging and impactful projects. As a Hospitality Management intern, you may find yourself immersed in diverse responsibilities, including guest services, front desk operations, food and beverage services, and more. Hospitality Management remains one of our most popular and sought-after career fields, with internship opportunities available across many of our locations.

Earn Credit For Your Internship Abroad

AIFS Abroad’s international internship program is designed to complement your college degree. You can earn college credits through your home institution, our school of record, or specific location-based opportunities.

How it Works

Step 1

Apply

Submit your application and start working with your Admissions Counselor. We will have an interview to learn about your career goals, educational background, and location preferences to ensure that you are a good candidate to intern abroad.

Step 2

Accept

Once your interview and application are complete, you’ll be cleared to apply. Your Admissions Counselor and our Placement Team will determine if we’re able to match you with a great host employer in your chosen destination. If accepted, this means we can guarantee you an internship within your career field.

Step 3

Enroll

After acceptance, the next step is to simply enroll into the program with your initial deposit to secure your spot. Enrolling means you have officially decided to join the program and take on the challenge and thrill of living and becoming an intern abroad in a new city!

Step 4

Prepare

Before you arrive in your host city, you will work one-on-one with your Program Advisor. They work with you on professional development, career advising and make sure you are ready to move and intern in your new home.

Step 5

Interview

We will start the match-making process and narrow down employers to a select few that you would be a great fit for. You’ll have a Skype or phone interview before you leave, so they can get to know you, and you can get to know them. If everything goes well, then your internship is confirmed! You’ll know where you’ll be interning and the role you’ll be walking into before you hop on the plane.

Step 6

Arrive

When you’ve arrived in your city, you will meet the Location Coordinator and the other interns at your housing. Your internship will start soon after you’ve arrived and there will be social events and excursions throughout the course of your program. We strive to give you the independence you want with all the support and resources you need to be successful during your travel and internship.

Getting started is simple! In just a few steps, you’ll be on your way to building your resume and gaining critical hands-on experience. 

Note: The vast majority of our internship placements are unpaid.

How to Dress for Your Internship

December 7, 2023

When it comes to determining how to dress for an internship, you’ll probably hate to hear this, but it really does all depend on the employer. While you certainly don’t…

I think that every aspect of this program made my experience so great. For one, my host city was greater than I could have imagined it could be. It was so fun, charming, and inviting. I think that because it was on the smaller side it made exploring it more intimate and by the first 2 weeks you could really know your way around. Secondly, because my specific program was smaller, it was easier to connect with each of the fellow interns, and we all became very good friends in a short amount of time. I think it was the perfect amount of people. Lastly, the company that I worked for made me excited to come into work everyday and learn. I know that by talking to other interns, their jobs really made their experience as well.

I also want to give my thanks to AIFS Abroad and Global Experiences for such an outstanding program. With the help of these companies, I was able to earn academic credit at the College of Charleston while furthering my professional experience in an foreign city. I am grateful that I have had the opportunity to be a part of this incredible international experience. Au revoir Paris, a la prochaine fois!
