The Beginning of My Career

A Waldorf Story by Daniel Carroll
2014
As a student at Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration, I became accustomed to visiting the Waldorf each year for Hilton recruiting and networking events. Waldorf Astoria New York was actually the first luxury hotel I ever visited and solidified my dreams of becoming a Hilton employee and a part of a luxury hotel brand one day. After experiencing roles with Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, two different Conrads, and a Hilton property, I have found my favorite company to work for as a Hilton employee. Similarly to Conrad Hilton, I will always remember this hotel as the one that started it all and the place where my dreams ran free and then came true.
