Two leading U.S. hotels have established programs with two tourism-training institutes in Bali to recruit students for one-year training programs to provide international experience that will assist aspiring hoteliers in their career paths to senior management.

The Setai Hotel and St Regis Bal Harbour in Miami, Florida regularly send senior staff from their personnel departments to interview and enlist young hoteliers for a year of work and training experience in Florida. Using a J-1 Visa that facilitates work-study experience, the student selected for the on-the-job training-program work in the two award-winning hotels for 12 months and are paid between US$8-US$12 per hour, depending on position.

A practical or academic background in hotel work and a minimum degree of English fluency are required to qualify for these positions, with only half of the available 600 positions currently being filled.

The cooperation program with the U.S. hotels is now in its fourth year.

The students are recruited from Bali Hotel School (Sekolah Perhotelan Bali-SPB) and Sekolah Tinggi Pariwisata Bali International (Bali International Tourism Academy - STPBI).

Quoted in the Bali Post, a personnel officer from the Hotel St. Regis Bal Harbor praised the Bali trainees for their diligence and hard work, natural smiles, desire to learn and willingness to cooperate.

According to Drs, I Nyoman Gede Astina, chairman of the Dharma Widya Ulangun Foundation and director of PT Bali Duta Mandiri, who processes applicants for the overseas training program, said more U.S. hotels are headed to Bali in search of job training candidates. In September representatives of the Hotel Four Seasons Resort at Jackson Hole Wyoming will visit Bali to conduct interviews.

Students or hotel workers with a proficiency in English are welcome to register at PT Bali Duta Mandiri on Jalan Kecak No. 12, Gatsu Timur, Denpasar at the campuses of the two tourism schools.

Training slots are available to students of tourism academies and daily workers at hotels in Bali.
