Summer Hospitality Internship Program



Program Overview

The Summer Hospitality Internship Program is a short-term learning and employment opportunity for Williamson County Schools and Columbia State Community College students interested in the field of Hospitality and Tourism.  The summer internship will provide students an opportunity to explore the diversity of career opportunities in the industry while learning more about areas directly related to his or her career interest.  The major purpose of the internship learning experience is for the intern to receive broad instruction in workplace expectations, confirm, narrow, or expand choices of career interest; develop an understanding of the connection between school-based theory and content and work-based applications; and increase awareness of the workplace, career opportunities, and community resources.  Participants are expected to provide their own transportation to both the training and work sites.


Eligibility & Selection Process

Eligible participants must be a Columbia State Community College Student or Williamson County School graduating Senior, Rising Senior, Rising Junior and can provide their own transportation to the worksite.

Applications will be reviewed for responsiveness, completeness, and neatness; diversity of schools represented; and strength of written responses.

Final selection of participants will be made by the business they are placed with through their internship.
