“The summer of 2019 brought me the opportunity to have interned with yet another property - Taj Mahal, Lucknow. The sheer fact that I belong to the IHM- Aurangabad community, allowed me a strong standing among the managerial hierarchy. I developed my exposure in the Front Office and Sales and Marketing departments of the hotel, where I learned the professionalism and various ongoing activities of the areas, along with the technical skills needed. My responsibilities were not just restricted to monotonous tasks of daily work, but also included guest compliant handling and taking operational action decisions. The Sales and Marketing team without incertitude allowed me to make deals with clients and also handle reservations. My association with the college and its reputation in the industry, created a trusting confidence and understanding between my colleagues and I from the very first day, which in-turn provided me with a fulfilled learning experience.“
“The name IHM-A isn't just a name, it's a respect that you earn. And you don't realize this till you step out in the outside world.” “This summer I decided to intern with the Gateway Hotel, Surat in the catering sales department, that's when I realized the value IHM-A had created.” “I wasn't looked at as just another intern. They said, ‘She is from IHM Auragabad, you can trust her, you can give her responsibility, these people know everything.’" “I was given the liberty to make deals with clients, the power to make decisions. While the other interns were given just odd jobs, I was sent for morning meetings where my opinions mattered a lot. They saw skill, knowledge and responsibility in me since day one, and it was all because of the name IHMA that stood with me.” -
"I have always believed that self-transformation commences only with a period of self-questioning.⠀ For me, questions led to more questions, and bewilderment led to new discoveries. This summer a great opportunity came in the form of a short internship with The Taj Rambagh Palace Jaipur. I worked as an intern in the department of Human Resources, where I was a part of numerous activities.⠀ IHM Aurangabad gave me the confidence I needed, and helped me perform to the fullest of my potential.⠀ Right from being involved in the preparations of the prestigious Townhall meetings, to shortlisting probable candidates through telephonic interviews, and taking an active charge in the recruitment process, I was involved in major activities run by the HR department.⠀ This experience gave me a great opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge on the workings of the department that I wish to work with in the near future."⠀
"IHM-A is a tree that bears not one but many colorful fruits. Ask me why because its foundations are such, The strong and renowned faculty who make up the roots. The togetherness and love among students who make the strong stem. The values which make the branches and our numerous accolades are the leaves and finally the skill and knowledge that we have imbibed in this temple are the fruits which are savored not only in our own home but also beyond our boundaries we have gone from local to global with what we have learnt thereby making ourselves capable and confident glocal individuals."

"IHM-A has provided me with a world class quality learning and experience, wherein I evolved over the first three years in the college. During my internship at the Oberoi, Gurgaon I observed a boos in my confidence level and skill set. I aspire to learn as much ever I can and want to give back to the institute in every possible way."
"During the course at IHM-A, we were taught theoretical and practical aspects related to hospitality industry such as Operational Modules, On Job Training and Outdoor Catering activities. My internship period at The Oberoi Mumbai made me utilize the skills and knowledge that I had acquired at the institute. It developed my overall personality which helped me gain confidence in accomplishing Management Training at the Oberoi Centre for Learning and Development."
"Looking back at my IHM-A journey and getting successfully placed with Starwood Hotels & Resorts as a Management Trainee in Human Resources, I feel greatly obliged to the institution for shaping me as a true professional for the hospitality industry. The intensive industrial and on job training at Taj helped me in guest interactions, be empathetic to people and make necessary decisions. The four years of association with the organization crafted me to face the turbulent competitive world with much confidence!"
"I still remember my first day at work, how nervous and unsure I was about joining a world renowned company as JW Marriott's. But once the day progressed and I started getting adjusted to how things work in the kitchen I realised that I can do this, I have been prepared for this for the past three years in college. I had a faculty with years of experience between them within the hospitality industry, who had shared their work experiences because of which I already had an idea about what to expect from the industry."
