InterContinental Bangkok & Holiday Inn Bangkok has partnered with 13 schools & Universities and have had 55 participants undertake work experience to date. IHG Academy is a great program to connect with the local community. We have been invited to be a guest speaker on hospitality topics for our partners and join many recruitment events. Ms. Pimporn Chairungruang, Talent Development Manager said, “We are happy to help develop students and share the real experiences with them, and they help us to become a great hotel company as well. This is a good opportunity for students to show their passion and abilities and learn from the real workplace. Many of them have become our high-quality, permanent colleagues or future leaders and I consider this as a great success of the programme.”
"IHG Academy has given me many new experiences and an insight into the hotel industry. I have learnt many things from my internship at InterContinental Bangkok and been able to apply this into the real workplace. In addition, I met many new friends from other universities and many new colleagues. I worked in F&B and Events management and these two different departments gave me different sets of skills and unique experiences. This great opportunity was really exciting; I got the chance to interact with customers and I had to work in the way that brought happiness to them. Working at theInterContinental Bangkok rendered me to know more about myself. After finishing the programme, I applied for IHG's Future Leader Programme and after interviews and examinations, I was chosen to be a Future Leader at InterContinental Bangkok, one of the best IHG hotels. Thank you for giving me such a great opportunity. Now, I will focus on my goal and will do my best to grow IHG." Mr. Piti Tiraronkornkul
