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

Check-in time runs from 2 P.M. to 3:30 p.m.


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 code into the payment terminal by the elevators so we are billed for it. 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, student volunteers will bring your materials to the CUB Senior Ballroom. Volunteers will also be available to assist with set up.


The School of Hospitality Business Management will hold a reception for all company representatives, faculty, and staff following Career Night. The reception will start at 6:30 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 and staff. 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 or rooms during the registration process. They are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, February 28, 2020. If you don’t need the room all day, please email Amy Alonzo at to tell her what hours it’s needed for. 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.
