Marriott’s Careers Pages Get Makeover With Where-I-Belong Theme

Posted By Todd Raphael On December 13, 2012 @ 7:21 pm In News and Features | 6 Comments

[1]Marriott is in the process of launching a bit of everything: a new Facebook application, a recruiting site for mobile phone users, a web-based careers page, and more, all about six months in the making.

The company had won an ERE Recruiting Excellence Award [2] this year for having the best employer brand. It had also done that 10-day shoe giveaway on Facebook last May [3] as well as built a Facebook game to introduce people to the hotel industry [4].

The new mobile-phone page at m.jobs.marriott.com [5] — when you access it from your phone — leads off with a large photo and is followed by a list of jobs. Meanwhile, here’s a quick, visual look at some of Marriott’s new Internet-based pages:


The careers page, above, at marriott.com/careers leads off with a large photo ...

... while the previous version, above, had a "destination Marriott" theme


The new Facebook page, above, at facebook.com/marriottjobsandcareers, has a "Where I Belong" theme ...


... as does a Facebook app at facebook.com/marriottbelong for "future, current, and former associates and friends of our family" to upload photos from around the world

[9]Among the many other channels, job boards, and so on where the new theme is carried out is on Twitter (right).

For the careers page on its careers website at marriott.com/careers, Marriott worked largely with Avature (in addition to Marriott’s internal web team). Avature also helped out with the map you see pictured at the top of this post, generated from job search results [10].

Avature also helped Marriott consolidate its two applicant tracking systems to create a new search. Punchckick Interactive helped build the Marriott mobile site.
