Annual Fall 2020 - Hospitality and Tourism Management, and Division of Consumer Science Career Fair

Due to COVID-19, we will most likely host a Virtual Career Fair in the fall. 

NOTE: Due to construction in the Purdue Memorial Union, the fair will be held in the Frances A. Cordova Recreational Center  

Tuesday, September 29, 2020 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm (EST). 

The School of Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM) and the Division of Consumer Sciences (CSR) have collaborated for the fall career fair since fall 2014.  On June 14, 2019, the Purdue University Board of Trustees approved the transformation on the Department of Consumer Sciences (CSR) into a division within the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM) to better serve students and enhance the quality and visibility of our programs in consumer science. This has led to a collaboration of the HTM and CSR Career Fair. We look forward to bringing a great experience to all majors in HTM/CSR; Hospitality and Tourism Management, and Leadership Development Certificate, Financial Counseling and Planning, Retail Management, Retail Management with Apparel Design & Technology Concentration, Selling and Sales Management and Certificate in Entrepreneurship and our employers!
