The Collins College Of Hospitality Management

Hospitality Career Expo Attracts More Than 75 Leading Companies

Hospitality Career Expo

The nation's top hospitality firms showcased their companies while recruiting top-talent at The Collins College's 2018 Hospitality Career Expo. The annual event is considered one of the largest university hospitality job fairs in the country. 

About 70 percent of participating employers are corporate recruiters that return year after year to hire qualified, capable individuals. More than 500 students attended to build their network and find new and exciting job opportunities. Part-time, full-time, internship, and management training positions were all available, and some companies conducted interviews onsite that same day. 

In addition to exploring a plethora of employment opportunities, attendees were able to network with alumni and get a professional headship photo taken free of charge. They also competed with their peers to earn a spot at an exclusive reception with recruiters after the career expo.  Each participating employer hand-chose one star student that best demonstrated professionalism, drive and the spirit of hospitality. At the end of the job fair, those students were able to attend an exclusive networking reception for some extra one-on-one time with recruiters
