Marriott Encouraging Job Seekers to Put Best Foot Forward

Job searching can be a tough feat, and sometimes it’s tempting to stick to more broad search sites to keep options open.

Nevertheless, there are MANY options when it comes to jobs in hospitality, and there are several sites tailored the industry.

For example, but Marriott International has an entire team dedicated to careers.

Marriott CareersThe team has just launched a new campaign for job seekers. As a company and as part of all of their recruiting efforts, they wanted to support job seekers with putting their best foot forward in interviews.

Jessica Lee, Director of Digital Talent Strategy for Marriott, notes a few points about the thoughts that went into the promotion, along with details on the giveaway:

Travel purveyors are all online. In our personal lives, we’re all online. And at this point, most major employers have also jumped into social media to try to engage with potential or current applicants, Marriott included.

You don’t often think of job searching being the most fun and playful activity – yet our industry is a fun, fun place to play! So we’ve thought a bit about how to try to have some fun with our social media presence while also supporting talent within our industry.

Sharing about specific jobs, the beautiful properties where there are openings just doesn’t feel like it’s enough – so it started last year with our game, My Marriott Hotel. This year, we are embarking on a few initiatives to try to have more fun with job seekers. And it starts with literally helping to boost job seeker confidence with some giveaways!

Regardless of industry, confidence to deliver a firm handshake and their very best answers is key for interview success.

Confidence can also come from looking the part and feeling great as you approach interviews – so every day for 10 days, from May 1 to 10, we are giving away a $100USD gift certificate to Zappos.com.

We want you to literally put your best foot forward in the job search – and we also want to say thanks for being so enthusiastic about our careers in our industry. We couldn’t agree more that the world of travel and hospitality is a fantastic career destination.
