Based in Washington, D.C., Marriott International, Inc. is one of the leading hotel companies in the country. The progeny of the original Hot Shoppes (established in 1927), today’s Marriott focuses exclusively on the lodging business, offering everything from short-stay hotels to extended-stay business housing. With over 3,500 properties in 70 countries and territories, the company was ranked by Fortune magazine as one of the 2009 best places to work. In 2008, Marriott International reported revenue of almost $11 billion.
Marriott offers internships in its hotels and corporate offices in the front office, housekeeping, culinary and pastry arts, restaurants, banquets, event services, finance and accounting, human resources, sales and recreation. The global hotelier invites one third of its intern pool to continue as full-time employees.
While the majority of interns are college students, high school students and recent grads may also apply. College juniors and seniors are preferred for some positions, but students completing business or related hospitality curricula can also be considered for internships with Marriott.
