Four months internships are there in the second year. Stipends depend upon the hotels and usually varies between INR 1,000-5,000 per month. Most of the hotels that come for recruitment are 5-star hotels and several travel companies, cinema, and fast food chains also come for placements. The alumni network is quite vast. And the salary usually varies between INR 15,000-30,000 per month.
There is a compulsory internship for 4 months in the second year, which can be done anywhere. The hotel should be a 5-star hotel; the front office, food & beverage service, housekeeping, and kitchen areas are given more importance during the internship. IHM conducts internship placements in the institute itself. Students who wish to do it outside Mumbai can do so.
I have finished industrial training at the Lalit golf and spa resort goa for a duration of 17 weeks. After completion of the course, there are a huge number of campus students placements with a wide range of packages starting from around 15k/month to a max of 34k/month (for the year 2017-18).
TRAINING AND PALCEMENT :
Industrial Training also gives you an opportunity to select the department that you are suitable for. Students can look for role models and know the profile desirable for the industry. You may face some difficult times as you are adjusting to the life of an “Employee” but don’t worry, you can address your concerns to the training manager and also can get in touch with the faculty coordinator if required. They will guide you. But never ever remain absent from work if you are not able to cope up. Speak to the personnel concerned about your difficulties and some solution will certainly come up. It is also important to complete the training from one organization only. Institute does not approve of students changing hotels for their training. In case such need arises due to some emergencies, approval from the institute must be taken. Make sure you always have a scratch pad and a pen with you so that you can record the observations or write down any query that you have. Remember that you are the “Ambassador” of your institute and your conduct forms the image of the institute in the minds of the hoteliers. We expect you to be well behaved and well groomed always. I have tried to include here information about industrial training, leave formalities, documents and reports that are to be submitted at the institute, performance appraisals ( you can make as many copies as you require), there is also an attendance sheet for you to maintain during your training and a leave card that can be used while applying for leave. Best wishes and good luck!
