Jenny Jeong - “My First Hospitality Internship in Canada: Lessons Learned”


Jenny Jeong

Jenny has travelled from her home in South Korea to study Tourism and Hospitality Management - Event Planning at Humber Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning in Canada.

It’s my second year in the Tourism & Hospitality Management - Event Planning program at Humber College.  As part of the Hospitality program, students must do internships with companies to complete their program successfully.

Before October arrived, I prepared a professional cover letter and a resume that I have been developing throughout my previous school year at Humber. I also had to buy a formal suit and pants to wear for the interview to impress for success.

During the summer, I had a few internships and different jobs, but I was not certain about the career path I should take. However, I knew that I was always fond of meeting people and delivering exceptional customer service to clients. I liked the idea of working at different events while interacting with people to provide services to make their stay enjoyable.
