  • 8. What advice would you give to others applying to Hilton
  • Always try and be the best version of yourself. Everything can be learnt and we are not expecting 'perfect' in Hilton. The passion is the main driver of success - show this to the recruiter! Also, very important tip I wish someone told me before starting - you can always do more than you think you can. Go in holding you head high and don't be afraid of the challenges - the more you face, the bigger you grow!
