MGM does not only focus on creation of extraordinary experience and service excellence for its guest, but also for its employees and interns. My MGM experience has begun with an interview by a team of Vice Presidents and Executive Directors. I was very much thrilled by the leaders’ approach. I saw MGM’s above and beyond hospitality in those 30 minutes. I felt nothing, but a big wish to be part of the SHOW. I was highly valued and welcomed as a woman of color in technology.
The simple truth I learned during my stay is, MGM is a great place to grow up with. The culture is made of assuring job satisfaction, work-life balance, growth, and employee retention. The employees are very much experienced and supportive. The DBA team, I am doing my internship with, is tirelessly guiding, encouraging, and supportive. You can knock on their door anytime, they welcome you with a big smile. Entertainment is part of the team, and so much fun. Can’t wait to be part of this adorable family!

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​I’ve had the pleasure of interning with MGM Resorts International Hospitality Center of Excellence Food and Beverage Leadership team. I came into this role ready to do my part in learning about and helping develop the strategies utilized by our company’s F&B venues. While I’ve had the chance to do just that, I was blessed to also have a great leadership team that supported me and provided me with opportunities to see these implemented strategies in action. The level of collaboration, thought, and communication that goes on between our team members is truly incredible and really puts into perspective just what it takes to WOW our guests. Each day has brought me a new challenge to overcome, but each hurdle has taught me something new along the way. I’m incredibly excited to continue growing alongside my peers and leaders here.

My summer intern experience at MGM as an Associate Software Engineer has been a memorable journey filled with immense growth. As an intern at MGM, I gained skills that range from technical, interpersonal, and problem-solving. I was impressed by all the ‘SHOW’ moments at MGM. As a leader in the entertainment and hospitality industry, the diverse and inclusive culture is embedded in all aspects of MGM Resorts' culture.
One of my memorable moments at MGM was volunteering at a Food Bank with all the technology interns. My biggest takeaway from this internship experience is communication and collaboration. Everyone has different skills, talents, and expertise. I have improved my technical and soft skills by collaborating and communicating with
cross-function teams at MGM.
