A descriptive analysis of trainee’s perception about effectiveness of industrial training programmes offered by Indian hotel industry

Arti and Dr. Sumegh

This study examines the perception of trainees regarding the effectiveness of industrial training programmes offered by the Indian hotel industry. With the hotel industry experiencing rapid growth, there is a rising demand for fresh graduates to meet the industry's workforce needs. Hotel universities play a crucial role in providing skilled manpower and internships in various hotels are an essential part of the curriculum to develop operational skills not taught in the classroom. However, there seems to be a disparity in career expectations among students after completing their internships. This research aims to identify these differences in perception and students’ opinions and commitment towards pursuing a career in the hotel industry. The study collected data from a sample of hotel management students who had either completed their internships. A questionnaire was administered to assess descriptive such as working conditions, learning opportunities, and compensation that influence career choices in the hotel industry. The results indicate that students perceive the hotel industry as a growing sector with abundant employment opportunities, and a significant percentage of students expressed a favourable attitude towards working in the industry. This research aims to highlight the challenges that need to be addressed, as hotel management students are a critical workforce for the industry's sustainability. By understanding students' perceptions and expectations, steps can be taken to improve the effectiveness of industrial training programs and enhance the overall image and attractiveness of the hotel industry as a career choice.
