Internship Program


By participating in the 8-week Hospitality Industry Diversity and Inclusion Internship Program, college-level students not only get paid for their work, but also develop a first-hand understanding of the industry through our comprehensive education and enrichment series.

The series includes:

  • In-depth orientation with company executives
  • Lunch-and-learn presentations facilitated by staff or guest speakers
  • Participation at business meetings

Additionally, interns have an opportunity to take part in behind-the-scenes tours of HFC facilities, networking events, and group outings.

This is a paid 8-week internship based in Houston. Interns are responsible for their own travel, housing, food, and personal expenses.
