Marriott International, the global hospitality company with over 6,200 properties in 125 countries and territories, has enhanced their job search and apply experience with the launch of MC – the Marriott Careers chatbot for Facebook Messenger.
Powered by “data-driven logic and specialized algorithms”, the hospitality industry’s first virtual assistant for job seekers is intended to create a more personalized and efficient experience to users who have an interest in a Marriott career. The HR industry is under seige right now with companies pitching chatbots. Watch this one in action here;
MC converses with job seekers much like a human, guides them to easily apply for open jobs based on discipline and location, and provides education on the company culture and values. Additionally, a brief quiz within the conversation offers job seekers a fun way to learn which of the 30 Marriott hotel brands may align more closely with their interests. Job seekers can chat with MC by downloading the latest version of Facebook Messenger and adding Marriott Careers, or by visiting Marriott Careers on the Facebook website and clicking Message.
MC provides information about some of the most commonly asked questions from job seekers, such as:
- “Do you have event manager job openings in Chicago?”
- “Do you have restaurant manager job openings in San Francisco?”
- “How do I get in contact with a recruiter?”
- “How many brands does Marriott offer?”
- “What are Marriott’s core values?”
