Hospitality Management Interns from
Philippines Interview - UHD 4K
Philippines is one of the most beautiful
countries in the world.
While there are a few places in the
south I would not recommend tourists to visit, the country has so
much else to see, do and experience. From beautiful hills and rapidly growing cities, to beaches
and seascapes that while stay in your memory forever, Philippines
has a lot to offer.
Hospitality has always been a key industry
in Philippines, and today many Filipinos work not only in the
hotel industry around the world, but also in many of our
hospitals. Why? They speak good English, are keen to work, love to
travel and are genuinely warm, caring people. Heart warming
hospitality seems to come very naturally to Filipinos, and if you
do visit the
country, I am sure you will receive a wonderful welcome.
With the country's two major airlines, Cebu
Pacific and Philippine Airlines, now buying more planes and
expanding routes, the country has become easier to visit than ever
before. And, let's not forget that Philippine Airlines (PAL),
founded in 1941, was the first commercial airline to be
established in Asia that is still operating under its original
name - that's quite something!
But how do so many Filipinos end up working in
hotels and hospitals around the world, what is the process, how
does it work, and what choices do they have? As many are very
young, are they not scared about leaving home, are their
families not worried about their safety, and wouldn't they prefer
to work in their own country?
Those are just some of
the many questions that I asked Mia Danielee L. Leonoras (23), in
Ha Long on 26 May 2019. Mia, who is from Philippines, has worked
as an intern in Florida and was up until very recently working in
a hotel in Ha Long, Vietnam. She is now looking for a new
opportunity in the cruise industry. Watch the video or listen to
the podcast to learn about Mia's thoughts, experiences, and tips
