Harsha Returns from his Yearlong Internship in Thailand

Last summer Harsha left for Thailand to complete a yearlong internship for his Hotel Management Bachelor’s Degree. He was placed at the Centara Grand Hotel in Bangkok where he also lived in their employee housing. For the year he was in Thailand Harsha was able to learn many facets of Hotel management.

“I have been in Thailand for an internship, which has been an incredible experience. During my time here, I had the opportunity to work in both the service and housekeeping departments. It has been a fun and rewarding experience, thanks to the fantastic team of colleagues I’ve had the pleasure of working with.

The working environment at Centara Grand Hotel has been great for learning, although we have had to work extra hours as interns to gain more knowledge and experience. Despite the communication barriers with some staff and managers, I am doing my best to adjust. I appreciate the support and guidance I have received from both my superiors and colleagues. The friendly and collaborative nature of the staff has significantly contributed to my positive experience, making each day enjoyable and productive.”

“This internship at the Centara Grand Hotel, the journey so far has been both exciting and enriching, offering me incredible experiences and numerous opportunities for growth. The diversity of people I’ve encountered from different countries has been eye-opening, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the process of


learning from them. I was assigned to work on handling problems, knowing about different food and drinks etc. It has been challenging but incredibly rewarding to apply the knowledge I gained during my studies.

I’ve had the privilege of attending various training sessions and workshops to enhance my skills in bar training, fire extinguishers, working in a team etc. The exposure has been invaluable, and I’m grateful for the learning opportunities that the hotel is providing me.”
