Career Fair

The annual Cornell Nolan School Career Fair provides an opportunity for our students to meet with representatives from a variety of hospitality employers in one central location. The 38th Annual Hospitality Career Fair will be held in-person, on Tuesday, October 25, 2022. 

Employers attend the Nolan School Career Fair 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 our online recruiting platform, Handshake. Employer Profiles, containing a brief description of each employer, are available at the Career Fair event.

Many of these organizations also participate in Cornell’s on-campus recruiting program and use our Career Fair as an added benefit to interact with Nolan School students. Other employers attend the event to introduce Nolan School students to their organization and to collect resumes for future openings. Some employers will focus only on Career Fair this fall, then have resume collections and interviews in the spring.

Students need to prepare in advance for their attendance at the Career Fair 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.
