If someone were to ask you what your favorite memory is, what would you say? A couple years ago if someone were to ask me that question I probably would have said swimming with dolphins, shopping on Rodeo, or something else that has absolutely no relevance to my life or my future. If someone were to ask me now, I would 100% say my summer internship at The Broadmoor.
This summer I have learned more, seen more, and experienced more than I could have ever imagined possible during a three-month period. I came into my internship knowing nothing more than what it was like to be a guest at a hotel.

While working in Human Resources and Employment I got to see the process of hiring and training exceptional employees while also getting the opportunity to be an exceptional employee at the Golf Club Dining Room. I also got the opportunity to attend several training classes, visit our newest property, Cloud Camp, shadow different departments around the hotel, like Loss Prevention and the Front Desk, and learn even more than what my internship entitled.

During my internship I gained extensive knowledge in Human Resources and hospitality. While at The Broadmoor, I also made lasting relationships that made it hard to leave. My co-workers and fellow interns became my family and close friends over the summer and I can’t thank them enough for everything they taught me throughout my time there.
Working in Human Resources and Employment has opened my eyes to all the hard work that goes into running a hotel smoothly and upholding high standards. It was an amazing learning experience within the hospitality industry.
