Industrial Exposure Training (IET) is a unique element of SRM Institute of Hotel Management, assisting in the refinement and polishing of the personality qualities that the industry seeks in students once they complete their degree. The programme is provided in the third or fourth semester for a period of 4 months, seamlessly integrated into the curriculum, strengthening their conviction in having selected the appropriate career in the hospitality sector, and in selecting the areas of specialty that the profession provides.
The students are motivated to excel in their chosen path by their live exposure to the industry when they work as ancillary staff alongside experienced regular employees of the hotel, whether in Food production, Food and Beverage Service, Front office, and Housekeeping, as the case may be. The daily stipend for miscellaneous expenses is an added bonus to the learning process.
The SRM Institute of Hotel Management’s partner hotels in the IET are among the best in the industry, providing with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to gain valuable insights into critical aspects such as organisational behaviour, working culture, time management and scheduling, inter-departmental communications, and stress management. It’s no surprise that students see IET as the foundation of their careers.
SRM IHM has paved the way for their Internship & Placement, International Exposure Training in Malaysian Five Star establishments such as Hotel Thistle Port Dickson Resort, Berjaya Hills Berhad, Holiday Villa, and others.
Overall, our three months of industrial experience has given us a new and optimistic perspective on the industry.
This internship has been a fantastic and fulfilling opportunity. I may conclude that my work has taught me a great deal. Needless to say, the technical parts of my work aren't perfect and may be improved with more time.
I was given the opportunity to train in all four departments.
