BSG Hospitality Interns

Posted

Job description

For these openings, BSG Interns is seeking Interns for 4-6 months at two locations:

-> the hotels that form the core of a small town where the Old American West comes alive for the summer, and which sits at the entrance to one of America's most remarkable National Parks

-> a very prestigious private membership club hotel property on the the coast in Cape Cod, 90 minutes from Boston.

The placements are for 4-6 months, with an option to extend for a further 6-8 months on a hospitality or culinary placement at a private club in Florida.

Students pay only £540 (single) or £650 (double) for their J-1 visa, whether for just 4-6 months or 10-12 months. The Host Club puts up the balance. Students also pay for their own flight (one-way ticket is suggested). The visa cost includes medical insurance. Housing is arranged and transport to and from the airport is provided.

BSG provides close guidance and assistance in the visa process, and with arriving in America.

All internships positions are paid, most at $10 per hour. Overtime rates are payable beyond 40 hours per week.

Each of these locations opens the door to a summer that is short, but unlike any other - and offers experiences that few others will ever encounter.

- Experience (minimum six months Front Desk / Reception
- Very personable disposition
- Fluency in English (verbal and written)

BSG Hospitality Interns

Headquartered in Florida, BSG Interns specializes in placing European Hospitality students on paid internships at premium-level resorts and private clubs along the east coast of the US. By means of a J-1 visa, students spend 6 to 12 months availing of a very formative program and an exceptional cultural exchange opportunity.

Since 2008, BSG has placed interns from leading hospitality universities and schools all over Europe but in particular Switzerland, Romania, Ireland, Great Britain, Holland, Portugal and France

The European background of its principals, blended with their extensive hospitality experience in the US, positions BSG as the quintessential conduit for students looking to maximize the success opportunity of their internships.

For clubs, having career-oriented students enhances the quality of their service teams. Significantly, they also add a distinctive flair that is warmly appreciated by the more affluent members and guests to whom clubs cater.

The simpler and more economical process offered by the J-1 program makes it much easier for host properties to embrace not just the student component, but the overall cultural nature of the program.

For the students, the opportunity to intern at a private club in the US offers a breadth and quality of experience that is just not available in Europe. The resume (cv) value is significant but, as testified by previous interns, the opportunity has a long-term impact on their perspectives of operations, management and service.
