Students from the Faculty of Tourism and Hospitality at HUFLIT explored the “Business characteristics of accommodation in Japan and internship opportunities”
To meet the goal of practical-oriented training, the Faculty of Tourism and Hospitality (FTH) at HUFLIT recently collaborated with IFK Education and Translation Company and Nakayama Agency to organize a seminar on “Business characteristics of accommodation in Japan and internship opportunities”, attracting more than 400 students.
Accompanying the students at the seminar were Mr. Nakayama Ken – Director of Nakayama Agency, Mr. Nguyen Phuong Trinh – Director of IFK Education and Translation Company, Ms. Nguyen Le Ai Lien – Interpreter, Assistant of IFK Company, and Assoc. Prof. Vo Van Thanh Than – Head of the Language and International Culture Department, University of Economics and Finance, former lecturer – student of HUFLIT.
In his welcoming speech, Mr. Le Dinh Tu – Lecturer of the Faculty of Tourism and Hospitality at HUFLIT, shared, “The meaning of this seminar has become more significant because of taking place on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Japan (September 21, 1973 – September 21, 2023). Currently, many Japanese companies are investing in Vietnam. Recognizing this as a great opportunity for young people, HUFLIT has been focusing on training high-quality human resources, proficient in foreign languages, and competent to meet the increasingly stringent requirements of the domestic and international labor market. Through this seminar, more opportunities will be opened for students to experience the business environment and culture in the land of cherry blossoms”.
During the seminar, the speakers introduced students to various types of accommodation, resort services, and unique attractions in Japan, such as onsen baths, skiing, cherry blossom viewing, and more. They also discussed potential internships in hotel-related roles such as receptionists, guest relations, management, food and beverage service, culinary arts, housekeeping, etc.
In addition to internship opportunities, students had the chance to experience cultural exchanges, practical Japanese language learning, Japanese cuisine preparation, training in sanitation management, fire prevention, disaster response, as well as specialized nursing and livestock-related tasks.
One of the major concerns of students regarding overseas internships is the language barrier, especially with Japanese. Since many students primarily speak English as their second language, they need to invest time in learning additional languages. According to Mr. Nguyen Phuong Trinh (Director of IFK Education and Translation Company), the ideal timeframe for students with the desire to intern in Japan is about 2 years. During this period, students should enhance their basic Japanese language skills to be able to communicate with Japanese people in daily situations.
Regarding internship opportunities, representatives from the Japanese side will conduct interviews online or in person each year. Once selected, students will prepare the necessary documents for the internship. Participating students will receive arranged accommodation with Wi-Fi, full amenities for living and working, three free meals a day, and a salary ranging from 15 to 25 million VND or more during the internship. Additionally, students will receive a certificate of completion for the internship in Japan, participate in insurance coverage throughout the internship, receive support in converting credits, and have conditional credits recognized.
The seminar “Business characteristics of accommodation in Japan and internship opportunities” helped students, especially those in their first and second years, to determine their career paths and plan their trajectories. Moreover, it provided them with the opportunity to experience, practice, and train in an international environment, thereby enhancing their skills and preparing them for future careers.” helped students, especially those in their first and second years, to determine their career paths and plan their trajectories.
