Hospitality Week Burtenshaw Hospitality Career Night

Burtenshaw Hospitality Career Night

This exclusive hospitality-company recruitment exhibition attracts more than 90% of WSU students majoring or minoring in hospitality business management, wine & beverage business management, senior living management, and event management, as well as other business students. Held each spring, it’s the perfect opportunity to recruit students seeking summer employment or an entry-level job. Angelina and the late Jerry Burtenshaw have graciously provided funding to create this event, which unites motivated students with hospitality industry employers. We are deeply grateful for their commitment.

Parking for the fair and the interviews is available in the Smith Center for Undergraduate Education (CUE) Parking Garage. (See campus map) You will need to enter a provided code and your vehicle’s license plate number into the payment terminal by the elevators upon arrival, so we are billed for it. You may also choose to use the AMP parking app on your cell phone and select the CUE Garage and how much time you need for the events that day. More details on this process and the code will arrive after registration has closed.


It is advisable to park in the CUE Parking Garage and go up the elevator to the third floor of the CUE. When you exit the building, you will be right across the street from the CUB. If you shipped items to us in advance, SHBM Student Ambassadors will bring your materials to the CUB Senior Ballroom. The Ambassadors will also be available to assist with set up if you need.


The School of Hospitality Business Management will hold a reception for all company representatives, faculty, staff, and SHBM student leaders following the Career Night. The reception will start at 6:15 p.m. in the Marriott Hospitality Teaching Center (Todd Addition 268). This is a great opportunity to meet and mingle with other recruiters, as well as School of Hospitality Business Management faculty, staff, and student leaders. The cost is included in your registration fee. You can provide names of reception attendees during the registration process.

On-Campus Interviews

If you plan to conduct on-campus interviews during your visit, we have reserved rooms in Lighty Hall Room 160, Todd Hall, and the Spark Building. You can reserve an interview room during the registration process. They are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, March 3, 2023. If you don’t need the room all day, please email Amy Alonzo at to tell her what hours it’s needed. The rooms are limited in number and are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so please make reservations as early as possible.

You will be responsible for creating and maintaining your own interview schedule and sheet to track them.
