Job description

Offering a subsidized J-1 visa for only £540, BSG Interns is placing Interns to train for 6 to 12 months in Food & Beverage service positions at very prestigious, private country clubs along the east coast. These areas include Florida, North Carolina, NY state, Connecticut, Cleveland, New Jersey, North Dakota and Massachusetts.

Various start dates in 2020, with early start dates in April-May-June and later ones beginning Sept-Oct.

Internships offer the whole year in one location, or the "split program", offering two different experiences:

1) spending 4 or 5 summer months in a northern state (Connecticut, Ohio, New Jersey, North Dakota, Massachusetts or North Carolina)

2) The other 7-8 months in Florida's tropical winter

The split program offers diversity of both cultural and professional experiences, whereas the 12-month option offers a deeper level of those experiences.

Students cover only £540 (single) or £650 (double) of the J-1 Visa cost - the Host puts up the rest.
The only other costs are:
- US Embassy visit fee ($160)
- Flight to the US (one-way is sufficient)
- Pre-arranged Housing (shared apartment rent or room/board fee)
The visa cost includes medical insurance.

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

BSG provides close guidance and assistance in the visa process, and with arriving in America. A full orientation is offered before arrival in the US, and continues to support students during their placement.

No fees of any kind are charged to students by BSG or the Host property.

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.
