The annual School of Hotel Administration (SHA) Career Day provides an opportunity for our students to meet with representatives from a variety of hospitality employers in one central location. Career Day 2016 will be held on Tuesday, October 18, in the Statler Hotel Carrier Grand Ballroom and several of the hotel's first-floor meeting rooms.
Employers attend SHA 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 about the organizations that will be attending the event through the our new online recruiting platform, Handshake. 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 Career Day as an added benefit to interact with SHA students. Other employers attend the event to introduce SHA students to their organization and to collect resumes for future openings. Some employers will focus only on 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.
