As the #2 Hospitality Program in the United States, we are so excited to host yet another Destinations Career Fair!
Our Destinations Career Fair spans three days with a number of opportunities to meet with students and share your company information. The Career Fair will be held February 21, 2019 at the Inn at Virginia Tech. The first evening (Wednesday, February 20) begins with panel discussions at 6:00 pm. The panel discussions are followed by a reception, which gives students and recruiters the opportunity to network together in a more intimate environment. Lastly, there is space available for recruiters to reserve for on-campus interviews on Friday, February 22. Both the panel discussions and interviews are optional to recruiters. Recruiters and students in years past have had significant success with our events. We would love to have you join us this year!
Panel Discussion & Reception
Wednesday, February 20, 2019 | 6:00pm | Pamplin 3001 & 3004
The panels will be divided into two one-hour long sessions and you may choose which one you would like to attend. One panel discussion will focus on what companies look for in employees' resumes, cover letters, interviews, and more. The other will focus on best practices for climbing the industry ladder.
The reception will be held in the Pamplin atrium immediately following the panel discussions. This is a time to network with students and get a better understanding of their interests, experiences, and personalities. Hors d'oeuvres will be provided. Dress is business casual.
Thursday, February 21, 2019 | Time 12PM-4PM | The Inn at Virginia Tech
The Career Fair will be held in the Latham Ballroom of the Inn at Virginia Tech. Recruiters will have a designated booth with an 8' table and a name plaque for the top of the booth. Lunch will be provided during the event. Companies attending for the first time will be asked to attend a short discussion about the program and the Department Field Study/Internship requirements.
