FEBRUARY 14 & 15, 2024

For 50 years, students from the Department of Hospitality & Tourism Management (HTM) have been organizing HTM Career Day. Typically, this event brings recruiters from more than 60 companies to meet with hundreds of students and features a central career fair in the Campus Center Auditorium, individual information sessions hosted by recruiting firms, and a lavish reception and networking event for recruiters and senior students, held in HTM's Marriott Center for Hospitality Management. This years’ Career Day will be held live.

The HTM Career Day is a student-run, non-profit event that has been held for over 40 years and it is the largest student-run career day on the East Coast.

In years past, the event has had tremendous success and continues to grow with now over 60 companies attending annually. The students attending this career day are ambitious to gain industry experience and to network with recruiters in order to achieve their final goal, whether it’s an internship, full-time job, or simply cordial information sharing with recruiters.

Each year, the HTM Career Day Committee builds upon their existing foundation to make it the best possible experience for the attending recruiters. This event is spread over the course of several days as it includes a Rapid Recruiting night for all sponsors, complimentary breakfast, lunch, and ends with our Senior Reception.

Furthermore, information sessions are held either before or during the career day, as well as interview rooms and suites for recruiters to host on-campus interviews the following day. The Career Day Committee strives to meet each company’s individual needs and truly looks forward to providing each company with a personalized and unsurpassed experience while joining us on campus.

I have been very impressed with the HTM students at the UMass Isenberg School of Management. Alumni are well prepared for post-graduate success as a result of not only the strong academic foundation that is the cornerstone of a UMass education, but also the crucial real-life experience that makes this program so special. The work ethic and can-do attitude of these driven students sets them up future success serving members and guests in country clubs, hotels, resorts, and restaurants worldwide, and I am proud to be affiliated with such a dynamic program.
