81 Hospitality Companies Attend Annual Career Expo to Recruit Collins College Students


The Collins College held its annual Hospitality Career Expo in February to help students achieve their career success. This was The Collins College's largest Career Expo to date with 81 companies there to recruit students for job and internship opportunities.

Some of the top hospitality industry companies in the nation such as Disney, Marriott International, Hilton, Sysco, and Darden Restaurant Group, participate in the expo. These top employers return every year to recruit students who are ready to step into management and leadership roles.

Open to current Cal Poly Pomona students and alumni, 70 percent of the companies in attendance were corporate recruiters and about 400 students attended the event with polished resumes in hand. This year, with the help of the Career Fair + mobile app, students and recruiters got access to floor plans, a complete employer listing, announcements, event details and more.

Recruiters also had the chance to hand-pick 72 Collins students who later joined them for an exclusive "Best of the Best" reception for extra one-on-one time with some of the college's brightest minds. Chosen students demonstrated professionalism, drive and the spirit of hospitality.
