Aimbridge Hospitality Raises the Bar for Recruiting Talent With Unparalleled Summer Internship Program

Leading Global Hotel Management Firm Expands Internship Program in Second Year

USA, Plano, TX./San Clemente, Calif., Texas. February 24, 2020

Aimbridge Hospitality, the world's leading hotel management company, is now accepting applications and actively recruiting for its second year of the company's highly regarded internship program.

Developed internally in 2019, Aimbridge Hospitality's internship program was designed with the mission to build the company's employer brand while also building a pipeline of future leaders.

The program targets career development at its earliest stage with a focus on exposing raw talent to real world hospitality experiences through four structured tracks: full-service operations; full-service food and beverage; full-service sales management and select-service operations. Each track takes the student intern through different roles within the hotel, giving them exposure to management training and various leadership styles over the course of 10 to 12 weeks.

The American Hotel Lodging & Educational Institute (AHLEI), the educational arm of American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), is Aimbridge Hospitality's exclusive partner in the internship program, providing participating students with four internationally recognized certificates upon completion of the internship. Additionally, AHLEI supports Aimbridge Hospitality with training content to help the participating mentors throughout the internship process.

"We appreciate Dave Johnson's commitment to bringing new talent to the industry, a mission he championed as our past Chair of the AHLA Foundation. The internship program that Aimbridge Hospitality has launched is unique within the hospitality industry," said Chip Rogers, President and CEO of American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA). "The hands-on education and training that these students receive throughout the program, coupled with the certification they receive upon completion of the program, sets the participating interns up for a hugely successful career in hospitality, and makes them highly desirable candidates for employment."

Aimbridge Hospitality partners with 16 participating top hospitality colleges to recruit interns through career fairs and informational tours. In the Summer 2019 pilot program, Aimbridge brought on 18 interns with 17 participating hotels. In Summer 2020, Aimbridge plans to have 58 interns with 71 participating hotels throughout the country.

Guest Service: Health and Safety First

Though expectations are that hotels will return to some semblance of normalcy in 2021, their highest priority must continue to be the health and safety of guests and employees. To that end, hotels are training their guest service personnel in enhanced cleaning routines, which include the following practices - bathrooms, elevator buttons, remote controls and other high-touch items, are disinfected and cleaned with a higher frequency; all tables, chairs and menus in restaurants are cleaned at a much higher frequency, and after each seating; floor markers in public areas to remind guests and team members to maintain physical distance; hand alcohol stations and disposable gloves in lobbies and restaurants; loose items such as pens, note pads and information material removed from rooms and meeting rooms; limiting the number of seats in restaurants and public areas; and revised food & beverage offerings. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will review how guest service personnel are being trained to maintain health and safety protocols in their operations.
