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.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Now More Than Ever

One theory about the pandemic states that future viruses are more likely to originate and flourish due to global warming. If true, the urgency to accelerate the adoption of eco-friendly practices is greater than ever. Of course, there are many other reasons to create a sustainable operation, including reduced utility costs, savings on operational costs, healthier and happier guests and employees, and positive publicity, marketing and community goodwill. Many hotels are introducing innovative programs into their operations - from recycling bins in guest rooms to starting a roof top garden. Other hotels are using eco-friendly cleaning products, reusing towels and sheets, sourcing locally grown food, supporting the use of electric vehicles, and permitting guests to refill their reusable water bottles with clean, filtered water. Finally, some hotels are encouraging guests to get involved by making it possible for them to participate in local community clean-up projects. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
