PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS Farmington Country Club’s internship programs offer exceptionally rewarding opportunities for hospitality management and culinary arts students interested in pursuing careers in club management.


TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES Interns learn all aspects of day-to-day operations of the various departments within a private club as well as the methods and procedures by which the departments and divisions are managed. Interns also gain an overview of the private club organization and develop insight into how departments relate to each other. Throughout the training experience, interns closely train with managers to learn effective industry practices. Additionally, interns have the opportunity to participate in staff meetings and training programs, and to attend trade shows and conferences.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS TRAINING EVALUATION At the conclusion of the training program, interns, together with the supervising manager, review and evaluate the internship experience and its applicability to the interns’ future career goals. Interns participate in the Club performance review process, which includes meeting with the supervising manager to discuss performance during the training period and to identify areas to focus on for continued professional development. HOUSING The Club provides fully-furnished apartments to interns on a spaceavailable basis, which are shared with other interns of the same sex.
