A Designers Eye
Learn well-rounded skills in the disruptive Airbnb industry. This relatively new professional world is fresh and exciting, it’s fast paced and requires quick thinking. Work with savvy millennials who have high expectations. Communication skills will be honed as the intern will relay all types of information to local contractors, Headwaters Hosting representatives and guests of all walks of life.

The duration of the internship is flexible with a minimum 3 month requirement.
I try to entertain everyone and put my 200% effort in accommodating every one of them. Showing your hospitality really matters. I always have “ichigo-ichie” spirit in my mind. “Ichigo-ichie” means “once in a lifetime experience or opportunity”. This word and its philosophy originally came from a tea ceremony theory connected to Buddhism. Hosts should do their best to prepare everything for their guests once in a lifetime experience.

The ability to work independently and hold one-self accountable
