    Marriott Uses Social Media Gaming to Help Attract Tens of Thousands of Employees


    Bethesda, Md., June 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — With as many as 50,000 jobs to fill worldwide by the end of the year, Marriott International, Inc. (NYSE: MAR) will be the first in the industry to tap into the exploding popularity of social media gaming to help generate interest in hospitality careers. At My Marriott Hotelon Facebook (www.facebook.com/marriottjobsandcareers), gamers will first manage a “virtual” hotel restaurant kitchen before moving on to other areas of hotel operations. The game will be available in English, Spanish, French, Arabic and Mandarin.

    My Marriott Hotel is similar in concept to the highly popular Farmville and Cityville games, which have grown to a combined 135 million monthly active users.¹ Gamers can create their own restaurant, where they’ll buy equipment and ingredients on a budget, hire and train employees, and serve guests. They’ll earn points for happy customers…and lose points for poor service. Ultimately, they’ll be rewarded when their operation turns a profit.
