What Makes a Great Hospitality Training Program?


J-1 Internship Programs are skill-based training programs and applicants qualify based on academic or professional experience in their respective field of training outside of the USA. Hospitality internships are amazing prospects for forthcoming Hotel Managers, Chefs, and Entrepreneurs! So, what makes a great hospitality internship?                                

Skilled Learning


1. Skilled Learning

Skilled learning is a part of hospitality program at top restaurants or hotels across the USA.The biggest advantage of this Program is that it exposes participants to real-life experiences in a professional environment which helps them to stand out for future career opportunities.Participants should be trained alongside industry professionals who will help them enhance their existing skill set and become familiar with American hospitality practices. These should be experiences that you can only get in America.


Cultural Exchange


2. Cultural Exchange

The multifaceted J-1 Exchange Visitor Program, managed by the State Department, enables foreign nationals to come to the United States to teach, study, conduct research, demonstrate special skills or receive on the job training for periods ranging from a few weeks to several years.


It was developed to expose individuals from around the world to the culture and institutions of the United States and to foster a better understanding between nations on a variety of issues through educational and cultural exchange programs.




3. Supervision

The best way to learn is by shadowing experienced hospitality professionals. A great training will include hands-on supervision, observation of staff members in their roles, and opportunities to complete tasks and activities with plenty of support. Interns on the J-1 Visa should not be responsible for managing a department by themselves; rather, they should work alongside their supervisors to learn how to manage the day-to-day operations of the business.


Professional Development


4. Professional Development

J-1 exchange visitors come to the United States to teach, study, receive training, or demonstrate special skills. The J1 visa is meant for students who need practical training that is not available to them in their home country, and the training must be directly related to their academic program.
