Internships at Woodloch
Meet Our Interns
Every year, Woodloch is happy to welcome interns from all across the country who are pursuing careers in the hospitality industry. Here are a few of our Woodloch Alumni.
Baking and Pastry Arts
Jessica and attended The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park NY, pursuing her associates and bachelors in Baking and Pastry Arts and Business Management together.
“I had the opportunity to assistance in producing delicious pastries for weddings, corporate groups, guest and more. I have learned a lot from being here and I am grateful for the team that I got to work with. Seeing our goodies being sold out or guest asking for more always made my day because I know I made the guest happy and that is all that matters. My externship has opened my eyes to see what the industry is really like and I can’t wait to be apart of it.”
Baking and Pastry
Toni graduated from Johnson and Wales University with a bachelor’s degree in Baking and Pastry. She is from Long Island and has visited Woodloch many times as a kid. During her internship, she worked at the Lodge on the pastry team. The Lodge has given her so many opportunities to grow as a baker. Her favorite part about the Lodge was the creative freedom that she was given and the incredible chefs and coworkers. She is very grateful for this amazing experience!
Cassandra joined us as a summer intern in the Human Resources department at Woodloch. She learned the trade of employment, payroll operations, benefits management, and more. She attended Bloomsburg University, where she obtained her degree in Business and Human Resource Management.
Cassandra has been “classically” Woodloch trained- she started working as a teenager in our Housekeeping department at Woodloch Springs.
“Woodloch means a lot to me because it opened me up to many different employment opportunities,” says Cassandra. “When I started working here so young I was nervous, as it was my first job. However, the employees and management made me feel so welcomed and taught me the hardworking skills that I have today.”
Recreation and Tourism Management
Coming all the way from Clemson University is Kerriann. She pursued a degree in Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management. She joined in on all of the fun and games of the Social Department this year.
Originally from Boonton Township, New Jersey, Kerriann spent summers nearby and of course, fell in love with the area. She’s new to the Woodloch family, but like she says, “I have always heard about what great experiences people have had at Woodloch!” Now, she gets to be a part of it all!
Dan was an intern two years in a row in our Marketing Department. Dan attended Penn State University majoring in Marketing and minoring in Digital Media Trends and Analytics.
Growing up in the area, Dan viewed Woodloch Resort as a staple in the local community. Throughout his time with us, he has gained experience in data analytics, campaign strategy, and brand management. He admires the resort’s commitment to making every guest feel at home and loves being a member of the marketing team.
Sustainable Hospitality and Tourism
Emily is from Long Island, New York. She attended the University of North Carolina in Greensboro, with a sustainable hospitality and tourism major and entrepreneurship minor (just about perfect for our line of work!).
“I personally applied to work at Woodloch because, when I was little, my whole family and I would rent a house and celebrate the Fourth of July here,” says Emily. “We visited a few years in a row and I always remember having so much fun! From then on, I knew one day I wanted to work here.”
Baking & Pastry Student
Dominique is a Baking & Pastry Student and Food Service Management Student at Johnson & Wales Univeristy in Providence, Rhode Island. Born and raised in Coventry, Rhode Island. The University recommended Woodloch to her.
She worked at The Lodge at Woodloch. “It is such an amazing place to work at. I highly recommend it to Baking & Pastry and Culinary students. The workers there are all amazing, especially Chef Shannon & Chef Bill. They strive me to be a better baker and person. I am forever grateful with the opportunities that the Lodge has given me.”
Recreation, Park and Tourism Management
Abby interned with us to complete her degree in Recreation, Park and Tourism Management from Penn State. She worked in both the Outdoor Adventure Department at The Lodge at Woodloch and the Social Department at Woodloch Pines.
Abby got to do the things she loved every day and share them with our guests. Her love of the outdoors and making people smile has made her fall in love with her internship here at Woodloch. Growing up in Northeast Pennsylvania, she has always known of the reputation Woodloch has and was excited to spend a semester with us!
Hotel and Restaurant Management
Jefferson was a Hotel and Restaurant Management student at SUNY Delhi located in Delhi, New York. He interned at the Front Desk at Woodloch Resort and served as a corporate coordinator for our group sales department. A former intern recommended Woodloch to Jefferson and her positive reviews led him to inquire about a possible internship.
Woodloch’s family traditions drew him in because of his passion of seeing people happy and smiling.
Baking and Pastry
Emily studied Baking and Pastry at the Culinary Institute of America in San Antonio, Tx. I grew up in Northwestern Pennsylvania and decided to attend Woodloch to get the taste of home back.
“I have gained many skills and techniques working at Woodloch. Woodloch has great core values and definitely sets itself apart from other resorts. It has been a wonderful experience working here!”
Baking and Pastry
Jade studied Baking and Pastry at The Culinary Institute of America, located in Hyde Park, New York. She interned at the Bakery at the Inn at Woodloch. She heard about Woodloch from a friend at school who had also completed her extern at Woodloch’s bakery.
“Her positive reviews pushed me to look for them in the career fair and try to earn a spot on their team. Everyone was very nice and excited to have me and I felt very appreciated. I loved working in the bakery, and going to the country store, Gigi’s or the market, (where) I can see our work on the shelves, and there’s no better feeling than that.”
