Students Are Invited to Attend the Virtual Hospitality Career Meet-Up

The Career Center invites students to attend the virtual Hospitality Career Meet-Up from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 18. Students need to register for the event in Handshake. Once registered, they will be able to access the Zoom link for the event. 

Students will join the event from Handshake and be directed to a Zoom room. From there, the Career Center will provide virtual meeting links for each employer registered for the meet-up and students can come-and-go to each virtual room to meet and network with organizations. It is recommended that students prepare for the evening by reviewing the list of employers attending and preparing conversational questions.

This free networking event is intended to bring employers and students together to facilitate connections in the food and beverage, meeting and event management and lodging management areas. Some students may be seeking part-time, internship, or full-time opportunities, while others are wanting to meet professionals to learn more about the field.

 “Career meet-ups were designed to provide students at every stage in their college career the opportunity to explore the industry area being represented," said Ashley Motley, Career Center Assistant Director and liaison to the College of Arts and Sciences. “It was important to us to try to continue to make that opportunity available in a virtual space.”

The K-State Career Center will also host a Media and Communications Career Meet-Up Thursday, Mar. 18 along with a Social Services Career Meet-Up on Tuesday, Mar. 30. Both events will be held from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. CST. These events will be facilitated in the same format as the Hospitality Career Meet-Up.
