On the Job Training at Hotel Jen by Shangri-La Manila

“As a graduating student of Southville International School and Colleges – Institute of Tourism (SIT), I must say that having the opportunity to work at one of the country’s renowned hotel companies is a whole new different ball game from the rigor of the school life. At Hotel Jen by Shangri-La Manila, we are potential employees, not trainees as the guidance provided by SIT matches the expectations set by premier companies which are on the lookout for outstanding candidates to join their league. The holistic exposure I had in this journey has further validated the extensive provisionary grounding our school has guaranteed to its understudies. Hotel Jen by Shangri-La Manila is where you can showcase your versatility as you fully embrace the rounded duties of a hospitality major. Indeed, SISC’s 5Cs equipped me to surpass the entire experience – CHARACTER kept me intact with my values as I deal with different types of clients we serve; COLLABORATION allowed me to be a team player as I fairly worked for hand in hand with my managers and colleagues; CREATIVITY showcased my improved ability to go out of the box as I come up with different strategies to perform my task beyond what is expected; COMPETENCE boosted my confidence and eradicated my doubts as I work with other top candidates from other academic institutions; COMMITMENT TO ACHIEVE most of all, led me to succeed in this final combat as I officially qualify for the completion of my course.

I am forever grateful to SIT and I am proud to say that I am a Monarch comprising the reputable community of Southville.”
