The Burger King Corporation is the second largest hamburger restaurant chain in the world, and there are plenty of opportunities to build a rewarding career there. The privately owned Burger King Corporation and its franchisees run approximately 13,000 restaurant outlets worldwide. Career opportunities go far beyond general restaurant management, although that’s a great path to take if you’re interested.

Burger King offers a Leadership Development Program, an MBA Leadership Program, summer internships and career positions in marketing, operations, IT, business development, finance and global business services.

The corporation regularly participates in career fairs at Ivy League and other colleges and universities. Be prepared to relocate, as its corporate offices are located in Florida. Global corporate locations include Singapore, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
