PORTSMOUTH and Hampshire students and graduates are urged to apply for a top work placement in America starting as early as April.

Bunac, the British Universities North America Club, one of the country’s leading providers of overseas work placements, summer camps and gap-year experiences, has just launched its brand new Internships Abroad programme.

The first internships available are aimed at those wishing to work in the catering and hospitality industries, and successful candidates will be given the opportunity to work for three to nine months in a hotel or lodge in one of five national and state parks in Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Virginia or Washington.

Interns will receive formal training in advanced culinary skills, improve their knowledge of food preparation, cooking techniques and sanitation, and learn how to succeed in a fast-paced culinary environment.

In addition, training will be provided in gourmet food and drinks, as well as the chance to train more independently in the food production process. Deadline is January 31.
