Career Day

The annual School of Hotel Administration Career Day provides an opportunity for our students to meet with representatives from a variety of hospitality employers in one central location. Career Day 2014 will be held on Tuesday, October 21, 2014, in the Statler Hotel Carrier Grand Ballroom and the Beck Center Park Atrium in Statler Hall.

Employers attend the School of Hotel Administration Career Day to increase visibility, to illustrate the benefits of employment in their organization, and to provide information to Cornell students about entry-level jobs and internships. Students can obtain information on the organizations that will be attending the event through the CCNet system. In addition, the Employer Profiles, containing a brief description of each employer, are available at the Career Day event.

Many of these organizations also participate in Cornell's on-campus recruiting program and use the Career Day as an added benefit to interact with School of Hotel Administration students. Others employers attend the event to introduce School of Hotel Administration students to their organization and to collect resumes for future openings. Some employers will focus only on the Career Day this fall, then have resume collections and interviews in the spring.

Students need to prepare in advance for their attendance at Career Day with a well-developed resume and a "quick pitch" to use with employers explaining their interests and abilities. This event is open only to currently enrolled Cornell University students. A valid Cornell ID is required for admittance.
