HTMi Centre for Career Management

“It is crucial for us, that every HTMI student feels supported in the decision process of which direction to go and how to achieve their personal goals in the best way possible. We try to challenge and motivate the HTMi students at the same time for the best results and career development.” (Anita Fischer, Career Center Manager, 2016)

Internships are proven to be a great way to gain relevant knowledge, skills, and experiences while establishing important connections in the Hospitality field. Internships are also a way to get your feet wet and find out if a specific department is where you could picture yourself as a long-term career after completing your degree. This is the reason, why every HTMi student should do a 6 – 12 month internship in Switzerland or Internationally after their on campus semester.
