Marriott launches careers chatbot for Facebook messenger
Bethesda, Maryland – 31 October 2017 –
Marriott International has radically enhanced the job search and application 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 creates a more personalized and efficient experience while delivering several other benefits to users who have an interest in a Marriott career.
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?”
Innovation has always been part of the Marriott story. Over the last few years alone, Marriott has launched several new ideas to help put the company at the forefront of travel. Recently, Aloft Hotels, the innovation incubator for savvy global travellers, launched the first ChatBotlr, a new chatbot that gives guests an additional way to make service requests. Aloft’s ChatBotlr joins Marriott’s other newly implemented service innovations powered by technology. Marriott Rewards chatbots are available on Facebook Messenger, Slack and soon, We-Chat and Google Assistant, and serve loyalty members before, during and between stays.
