Shanique has been in hospitality for 19 years, 10 of which have been with Marriott, and she pivoted to a career in Human Resources after getting her started in IT.
“Hospitality provides significant opportunity for learning and growth. It’s more than ‘just a hotel.'”
“We were still in the middle of COVID, so I had to learn my role quickly and then implement what I’ve learned while running shifts by myself. I thrive in that type of environment, so I really enjoyed the fast pace.”
“Rumor has it that no one has ever heard of a director of engineering transferring over to human resources.”
“I have been very lucky to be part of such great teams that have always supported me as their leader, even when I was the rookie in my position.”
