Papillon Hotels is a luxurious, all-inclusive five star hotel chain in Turkey. All three of its hotels are located in the well-known holiday destination Antalya, where the average temperature all year round is 24 degrees and where one finds 300 days of sun a year.
A chosen group of six Wittenborg students have been granted the opportunity to become a trainee at a very special internship programme at the Papillon Hotel Chain in Turkey. Last week, the Group's Food & Beverage Manager Mr. Murat Neptun visited WUAS to meet the chosen candidates in person. After an in-depth presentation about Papillon Hotels, all six of the students were invited for a screening interview. Mr. Neptun was pleasantly surprised by the enthusiasm and motivation of our students.
This week all of the applicants will hear whether or not they have been selected for the internship position in Antalya, Turkey. Once hired, the students will be assigned to one of the three hotels where they will experience working in different functions and disciplines within the organisation. Many of the students have showed interested in the food & beverage and the entertainment department. Or students will work for 5 months, 6 days a week with an average of 8 hours a day!
Both WUAS and Papillon Hotels are excited about the partnership in exchanging information and helping each other for better-trained hospitality professionals.
