How different was your on Job training different from the theoretical inputs given in the college ? And what is your learning outcome of this ? A. From my entire industrial training exposure, I have gained more knowledge about the hotel industry and its functions. Learning things in theory and applying them in real life is totally different, when it comes to applying them in situations makes them 10 times harder. And when you are facing problems it makes you learn quicker and makes you remember things better.
Also, The hotel Industry Changes very quickly, just like the Technology Industry, Hotel industry also keeps on changing . Therefore, Colleges should be well connected to what’s the new thing that’s happening in the Hotel and what all new technologies are being used and what all old things are removed and instead new thing that are implemented in the hotel. So that Student’s should well prepared while going to the industry and on implementing them. So my learning outcome from this Industrial training is that I can handle any situation easily with the theoretical as well practical knowledge that I have acquired.
Also learning about new things has increased my thinking capability, on how a hotel works and how you have to generate revenue through your speaking ability to keep your source of income alive. Q . Which is Your Chosen Department and How do you propose to be the best in department ? A. My chosen department is Front Office. Only because from Day-1, I had a special interest in this part of the hotel industry. And after acquiring a particular set of practical knowledge, now I have to just work on improving it better so that when the time comes on applying it into use I can do way more better than what i did in my Industrial Training.
Also the Hotel keeps on changing so i have to very well in touch with what’s going around the hotel industry so as to be aware of what all new methods and technologies are used. SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT Just like the airlines have an Online boarding pass through an E-Ticket, in a similar way, the hotel could have a check-in form online, at the time of their reservation after the payment has been settled, so that they are not kept waiting for manually filling the form and wasting time. This can be done with the existing TIC guests as the hotel already has all their
information. As a similar process is already been carried out for repeat clientele, this should be done for first timers as well, to save time. My second suggestion is that, industrial trainees should be given some more exposure along with some responsibility under a seniors guidance to get better learning experience. My overall experience has been great at the Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai. The managers and the working staff have played a major role in my development and working as an industrial trainee at the Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai. Thank You.
