Career Fair

The Hospitality and Event Management Career Fair is an annual event held in spring. 

Several businesses representing restaurants, non-commercial foodservice, contract foodservice, hotels/resort, commercial rental, event management, entertainment, distribution/whole sales, country clubs, casinos, and themed parks attend this popular event. Companies are looking to fill full- and part-time positions, seasonal positions, internships, and supervisory and management positions.

This event is open to Hospitality and Event Management majors, minors and alumni; Recreation, Park, & Tourism Management majors; Sport Administration majors; Event Planning minors; Business and Communication related majors; and graduate students in the Hospitality and Tourism Management program at Kent State University. We also welcome anyone (that means ANY major!) who is interested in or wants to explore career options in the Hospitality and Event industries.

Business professional attire is preferred for all attendees. Participants are also strongly encouraged to research the companies in advance, engage in mock interviews, practice elevator pitch, research STAR format of responding to behavioral (scenario-type) interview questions, and bring professional copies of their resume printed on resume paper.
