Come have fun on the beach this summer with Wyndham Vacation Rentals, in Northwest Florida, while working for school credit!


Wyndham Vacation Rentals is a large real estate and vacation rental management company.  Our territory in Northwest Florida & Alabama runs along the Emerald Coast from Gulf Shores, Alabama to Panama City Beach, Florida where we manage approximately 3,000 vacation rental units.  The vacation rental units that we manage are primarily beach houses and condominiums, with the majority of those units actually located on the beach.  Our busy season is from Memorial Day to Labor Day and our internship program runs for 12 weeks in the summer.

Internship Objectives:

We want your internship experience with Wyndham Vacation Rentals in Northwest Florida to be a beneficial, educational experience!  We will support you in attaining school credit for your time with us. Our goal is to share with you an understanding of our summer Recreation programs and activities, including:

  • Plan, advertise and execute recreational programs for guests and their children.
  • Develop indoor and outdoor activities, contests, games, etc., for the enjoyment of the guests.
  • Assist with special events at the property.
  • Help purchase and maintain supplies, games and recreational equipment.
  • Generate revenue through fun, engaging, recreational activities.



Do I have what it takes?

We are seeking enthusiastic, energetic, customer service driven, college students, majoring in hospitality or recreation, to join Wyndham Vacation Rentals for an exciting and educational summer internship!  We will first consider seniors and then juniors, who are currently enrolled in a college or university hospitality program.  A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 and previous customer service experience is preferred.  Additionally, you MUST be able to attain school credit for your time with us.


Is this a paid internship?

YES.  We pay $11.00/hr!  This is a paid internship opportunity.  Expect to work at least 40 hours a week.  The ability to work a flexible schedule is required.  In the hospitality industry evening, weekend and holiday work is required.  Any school coursework is expected to be completed on your own time.  Paychecks are issued bi-weekly, however, your first paycheck may take three weeks to be issued, so you should plan your finances accordingly.


Will Wyndham Vacation Rentals help to secure housing?

YES.  For non-local interns, we understand that affordable housing is often difficult or impossible to obtain if you were to try to secure it yourself.  We will assist in securing student subsidized, shared, furnished accommodations.  Each student will pay per month for housing, which will be automatically deducted from your paycheck.   


Will I need to provide my own transportation?

YES.  All housing options will be offsite and transportation is NOT provided by Wyndham Vacation Rentals and will be the responsibility of the student.  Your work location will most likely not be within walking or riding distance from your housing location.
