Over the past 10 years, True Blue Bay Boutique Resort has been participating in internship programs with schools and organisations such as T.A. Marryshow Community College, Program for Adolescent Mothers (PAM) and the government Imani Trainee Program. During this time, we had the opportunity to contribute to the growth and development of the lives of several young people some of whom are employees today at our hotel.
On June 13th, 2014, another group of trainees completed their stint with us and an award ceremony was held in their honor. Human Resource Manager and Owner, Marie Fielden congratulated the group on their achievement and indicated that not all persons make it to the end of the program and that she was very proud of them. Guest speaker Honorable Alexandra Otway-Noel, Minister of Tourism also commended the interns on their achievement. She gave them sound advice, by encouraging them to keep themselves informed by learning something new everyday and to be “positive and confident” in their job search.
The interns received a pleasant surprise as it was announced that the “Best Overall Intern” would be offered a full time job to work at the hotel. We are happy to announce that Joanie Archibald will be joining the True Blue team! We welcome her and wish her and all the other interns the very best in their future endeavours.
