Singapore Tourism Board and Singapore Hotel Association have collaborated with 15 hotels in Singapore to offer a 10-day Work for Stay programme from 11 December 2017 to 30 March 2018 to expose tertiary students and Singaporean and Permanent Resident jobseekers to day-to-day work operations and culture of the hotel industry.

“Work for a Stay aims to give participants the chance to learn about working in a hotel in the most effective way – by gaining on-the-job experience. It will also help hotels to identify promising candidates with a passion for hospitality, and showcase the range of work and life experiences available in hotels. We also felt that the concept of working for a staycation would appeal more to millennials, who treasure unique experiences,” said Ms Ong Huey Hong, Director of Hotels and Sector Manpower, Singapore Tourism Board (STB).
