Post-Hospitality Career Fair Interviews at SHRM

Posted: Monday, March 6th 2017 at 2:34 PM

Eighteen businesses conducted interviews with School of Hotel and Restaurant Management students after the SHRM Hospitality Career Fair ended on February 22, 2017. These companies were looking for college graduates to fill training and management positions, but were from a broad range of hospitality-related industries. For example, Lindblad Expeditions, a National Geographic affiliate, was seeking students to work on their 7 Day Eco-Tours. Professionals from Colorado River Discovery were looking for river guides for their casual floats down the Colorado. These are just a couple of examples of how the SHRM experience can open up opportunities far beyond hotels and restaurants.

Interviewers worked around class time and utilized empty classrooms to make sure that everyone who signed up for an interview was given the chance to prove themselves. Some SHRM faculty even offered their offices so that interviews could be conducted. This is just one more way that these hospitality-driven people demonstrate the very thing they teach.
