Virtual Internships for Global Restaurant Consulting FirmBookmark This
Aaron Allen & Associates
DescriptionWHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
We’re a world-class restaurant consulting firm seeking talented interns to learn from and work with our ambitious team.
Serious candidates must enjoy food, wine, travel, hotels, new cultures, cuisines, emerging trends and technologies, and sharing and hearing (totally awesome) facts and examples from the restaurant industry that would make a CEO’s palms sweaty and heart skip a beat.
Really, we're looking for someone with fascinating ideas. Spectacular insight. Courage and personality. Ambition and drive. Someone who knows "good enough" is never good enough.
But we need someone crazy. You know, someone who tackles projects that are far too ambitious because, well, who cares about silly things like “time constraints” and “normal people’s perception of reality.” Someone who lays awake at night laughing about how that one restaurant’s menu with unnecessary quotation marks around a few choice phrases was so unintentionally hilarious.
And someone who is ready to play a key role in building the #1 resource site for senior restaurant and hospitality industry executives around the world.
If this sounds like you, then you may have just stumbled upon your dream internship.
As we said before, we're a global restaurant consulting business. Check us out at aaronallen.com. Go ahead, we'll wait.
We cater to senior executives of restaurant, foodservice and hospitality companies worldwide. We work primarily with emerging brands and large chains ($20 million to $37 billion). Our newsletter is read in more than 140 countries and we represent global hospitality organizations. Our content incorporates examples from around the world and provides fresh insights to industry executives at the top of their class. The content focus is centered on restaurant marketing, branding, design and business growth. Our audience is very hungry for examples, case studies, best practices, facts and figures, trends, and how-to content related to the aforementioned topics. And being restaurant and hospitality people, our instinct is to make sure the hungry are well served and well fed.
OUR COMPANY CULTURE AND BELIEFS
At Aaron Allen & Associates we believe in thinking big and pursuing dreams. We focus on what’s possible and not what stands in the way. We believe in determination, commitment and heart. We believe in a meritocracy—big ideas matter more than big titles or structures. We admire confidence, but we root for the underdog. We strive to grow, develop, learn and contribute more. We seek bright, energetic and passionate people because, as they say: if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.
We believe in building assignments around the interests, passions, strengths and talents our interns bring to the table. The final internship description will be a collaborative effort. Bearing that in mind, the right fit would probably get excited by some of these duties:
1. Researching the hottest, latest, greatest, craziest, most interesting examples in the restaurant and hospitality industry from all around the world
2. Keeping up with global industry blogs and trends
3. Looking at the industry and contributing to it from a unique perspective (from economics and finance to architecture and fashion design)
4. Getting down and dirty with analytics and other reporting tools
5. Rocking social media
