Before I begin my junior year at college I knew it was vital to find a summer internship with an amazing company. I did not want to lose an opportunity for career experience and spend my summer watching Netflix.

That’s why I was ecstatic when I received the Human Resources Internship with The Broadmoor Hotel! Growing up in Colorado I always knew about The Broadmoor and even attended a few events at the hotel, but I never dreamed I would end up working for them! After attending Cornell University School of Hotel Administration for two years I was ready to put the knowledge I learned at school into a real work environment where I would have to perform to the five-star, five-diamond level standards that The Broadmoor Hotel demanded.

My first week was a bit nerve racking as well as overwhelming. I was trying to absorb in all the new information as well as fit in with the other interns and employees in the office. I was quickly relieved when my stress dissipated as the employment office team and the other HR interns accepted me immediately and made me feel very welcome.

Over the next several weeks I gained valuable experience working in the Broadmoor Employment office that I wouldn’t have received anywhere else. I learned about conducting interviews, new employee orientation and improved my overall communication skills. I also shadowed other employees in the hotel which broadened my knowledge of the ins and outs of the hospitality business. I was able to shadow the manager of The Golden Bee, the Food & Beverage PR & Marketing Manager, and an Executive Meeting Manager in the Conferences Department.

Working for the Broadmoor Hotel has given me real world experience that I could have not gained in my college classes. I have gained valuable experience while making connections and friends that I know I can call on for advice in the future. I am sad to leave this magnificent hotel and its employees behind, but I am very grateful for the opportunities that the Broadmoor provided me this summer!
