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, Dallas, 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: Creative Innovation

Being eco-friendly is no longer a fad. It is an urgent planetary need and hotels are actively doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint by implementing sustainable, green practices. In addition to the goodwill derived from doing the right thing, hotels are also realizing the benefits to their business. A large percentage of Millennials expect hotels to be eco-friendly and will only patronize those properties that are proudly conforming. Consequently, more hotels are realizing that sustainability is a key element in a successful branding strategy. In addition, going green can lead to a more profitable bottom line, as savings on electricity, water and cleaning materials can add up. Also, there are other advantages that come with being an eco-friendly business, such as government subsidies and tax and loan incentives. As a result, many hotels are finding innovative ways to integrate eco-friendly practices into their business. Geo-thermal energy systems, along with energy-from-waste systems, are being used to heat and cool the property. Passive solar panels, green roofs, natural lighting and natural ventilation strategies also assist in energy conservation. Low-flow water systems and plumbing fixtures make a contribution, as does eco-friendly hardwood flooring, and energy efficient televisions and appliances throughout the property. In addition, some hotels have implemented in-room recycling programs, and only provide all-natural, personal care items. One hotel has actually constructed a bee-keeping operation on their grounds. Not only is this good for the bees but the hotel also produces products from the operation which they sell. This kind of creative innovation also holds enormous appeal to guests. 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.
