Talent Acquisition 

Our mission is to deliver unforgettable experiences that make 
vacation dreams come true. 

Marriott Vacations Worldwide realizes that talent drives our 
future and our robust college recruiting program allows us 
to locate top talent from some of the best schools around 
the country for the opportunity to join the company through 
our internships and Management Development Program. 
Internships offer a combination of on-the job training and an 
introduction to Marriott Vacation’s Worldwide’s culture and 
values. Our Management Development Program offers an 
immersion into the operations of one of our resorts for six  
to 12 months.

It includes an extensive training program and opportunities 
to network with senior leaders. Upon completion of the 
program, successful participants are placed in management 
positions within the company.

Finally, Marriott Vacations Worldwide continues to look for 
talent internally, and the tenure of many of our top leaders 
and executives is a testament to the company’s strategy 
of promoting from within. In 2016, 29% of our placements 
were to internal promotions. Working for Marriott Vacations 
Worldwide is not just a job, it can be a lifelong career that  
will take candidates places they have never dreamed  
of going.
