Preparing for The Internship Course

HMGT students working towards their BTech degree are required to complete the internship course. Watch this video to which shares information about preparing for the internship requirement.

“When looking for an internship I recommend for you to be professional (it should always be that way). Include your resume in the email because they may ask for it. To find internships use Handshake, the job search on Google, the website where you plan to do your internship, or ask your classmates and professors.

Be patient. I applied to more than 5 hotels and only one replied to me. And guess what? They approved my internship. Good luck!”

An Explanation of “Elective Classes Allowed”

HMGT students have the opportunity to select elective courses that and explore courses that are of interest to them. Watch this video to learn more about how to satisfy the elective classes credits

I wasn’t sure what exactly elective credits are. I thought they were the classes that had to be chosen from specific categories but we still had the freedom to choose what we want. I didn’t know they were classes where we were able to choose any type of class. An academic advisor explained to me that these classes can be from my major to learn more about a specialty in the Hospitality industry or any other course.
