The Intern and Trainee programs are amazing opportunities for participants to obtain knowledge, skills and competencies that will have direct and lasting benefits for their career.  The key emphasis on these programs in terms of what that looks like on a daily basis is that the training they received is skills-based.  The State Department has provided all sponsors within the regulations a list of “Unskilled Occupations” that are not appropriate for Interns and Trainees to be asked to do or incorporated into their Training/Internship Placement Plans.  We are including the list below, and have highlighted ones that apply to the hospitality field.  If you ever have a question about what is or is not appropriate for your Interns and Trainees to do, please contact us.  We are happy to provide guidance and examples of successful TIPPs for various roles within the hospitality industry.
