News from Career Services – Internships

In order to help gain work experience in the US, we have been able to offer internships to some of our international students.

In January, Prashanth Ramaswamy interned at Interface Systems Inc. in Clearwater. Daniel McCrady,  HR Manager at Interface Systems Inc. is a Schiller graduate. Prashanth learned the ins and outs of IT Consulting from a management point of view, aided in research in various legal and B2B service matters and among other things helped with the day to day tasks of running a small business office. Despite the fact that Prashanth had to depend on public transportation to get to work, rain or shine, he never missed a day of work and arrived early every workday which made a great impression on Mr. McCrady.

Seyf-Eddine Biya interned at The Bay Harbor Hotel in Tampa in March and April. Schiller graduate Yana Shtrak is their Front Desk Lead Supervisor, which marks her second promotion since starting at the hotel in September of 2015. Seyf worked in all departments from housekeeping up to management. General Manger, Crystal Rivera said that Seyf “exceeded the expectations” and that he “made an amazing impression” and “will be an asset to any organization he works for.” Seyf enjoyed his time at The Bay Harbor Hotel that he stayed for twice as long as was expected!

Temitope Adesanya is photographed at the desk when she interned in April and May at The Belleair Country Club where Schiller Graduate Edward Shaughnessy is the COO and General Manager.  Schiller graduate Nora Yordanova who is the country club’s Director of Member Services, is pictured with Career Services Advisor Gloria Moranski. Beverage Manager Slavi Kratchanov is also a Schiller graduate! Temitope worked in the golf department including the merchandise center, the pool, tennis, pickleball, croquet and food and beverage areas.  Temitope said that the highlight of her internship was working in every department and “Learning a bit of everything and seeing how the operation is run daily. It was an amazing experience for me.”

Thank you to our Schiller graduates and local leaders in the hospitality industry who have paired with us to open this door of opportunity for our students.
