Through this department, students can find internships in China and abroad in reputable establishments, and even secure full-time employment upon graduation.
Industry Internship Placements: Students gain work experience through industry internship placements in certified hospitality establishments including, among an array of other venues, hotels and restaurants. The internships can take place in China or internationally.
Career Days: Every semester, a Career Day is held on campus where representatives from international and Chinese brand hotels and reputable local hospitality companies visit the campus directly, to present their organizations to students and hold interviews for internships and full-time positions.
Campus Visits By Industry Professionals: Throughout the semester, hospitality professionals are invited to share their knowledge, hold an Open Class, give a presentation, or attend an event as a guest speaker at Les Roches Jin Jiang, which enriches students’ programs. Usually, the industry professionals’ participation in class is concluded with on-campus interviews for the open positions held at their company.
