Singapore, 6 December 2017 – The inaugural Work for a Stay programme will offer graduating students from post-secondary institutions and jobseekers who are keen to work in the hotel industry a chance to try out a short-term work stint at a number of hotels here, and earn a staycation.
First-hand, on-the-job experiences in the hotel industry
The Singapore Tourism Board (STB), together with Singapore Hotel Association (SHA), have collaborated with 15 hotels in Singapore to offer a 10-day Work for a Stay programme to expose tertiary students and Singaporean and Permanent Resident (PR) jobseekers to the day-to-day work operations and culture of the hotel industry. This programme will enable participants to better understand the job scope and skills required in the industry; it is also part of efforts to help the industry build a strong pipeline of talent and a future-ready workforce, while providing quality career opportunities for Singaporeans and PRs.
