The Standard: Hotels link up with PolyU in chase for new blood



About 200 Polytechnic University nonsubsidized degree students from hotel and tourism, engineering, business and communications streams will be able to intern at nine Sun Hung Kai Properties hotels during this summer and winter break, including top-notch Four Seasons and Ritz-Carlton.

The property giant has partnered with PolyU’s College of Professional and Continuing Education in organizing the program to inject new blood into the sector, which is reviving as Hong Kong enters its post-Covid-19 resumption, but is facing a manpower shortage after three years of border closures.

SHKP’s assistant vice president for the hotel division, Michael Lam Ho-po, said the interns will work for 500 hours – about two months during their summer break and a month in winter – at the nine hotels.

The other seven hotels are W Hong Kong, Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour and five Royal brand hotels – the Royal Garden, Royal Plaza, Royal Park, Royal View and Alva Hotel by Royal.
