For the fourth consecutive year, Marina Hotel Kuwait organized an internship program and hosted four Lothan Youth Achievement Center (LOYAC) students for an extensive training program which lasted for two months. The annual initiative reflects the hotel’s proactive contribution to the development of the youth.
The internship program at Marina Hotel aims at empowering the interns and to provide them with better opportunities upon entering the job market by offering theoretical and practical components as well as a number of team building and recreational activities. The four students who received the training this year were: Manfred Augusto Fernandes, Ali Shaverdi, Merlyn Melchiades Pereira, and Ahmed Nedal Ibrahim. During the training period, the interns understood the fundamentals of working within a hotel and in particular the housekeeping and front office departments.
Mr. Nabil Hammoud, General Manager of Marina hotel said, “A core element of Marina Hotel’s corporate social responsibility agenda is towards encouraging youth initiatives. We are proud to train a number of students over the years in our hotel’s different divisions and departments.” “Students get firsthand experience of being part of a team, and that helps them develop in character, confidence and prepare them in the future for whatever decision they make. We are lucky to have the opportunity to host such talented and ambitious students and wish them all success in their careers,” further concluded Mr. Hammoud
The interns were allotted tasks and provided with hands on experience of a professional ambience with its daily functionalities. They gained invaluable insight into work-life and environment, while benefitting from a professional service orientation. At the end of their internship period, the interns were assessed and given feedback on their performance by their direct mentor. This collaboration is an annual internship program which offers college, university and high school students the opportunity to acquire first-hand experience in the hospitality industry.
