HTM/CSR Career Fair Information:

We would like to formally invite you to our School of Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM) and the Division of Consumer Sciences (CSR). We have collaborated for our fall career fairs since fall 2014.  As of 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 our majors HTM: Hospitality and Tourism Management, along with a Leadership Development Certificate. CSR: Selling and Sales Management, Retail Management and Financial Counseling and Planning along with a Certificate in Entrepreneurship and our employers!

The staff at the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management and Division of Consumer Science's Career Center are here to assist you.  As of fall 2020, we will work together to coordinate one unified virtual career fair and work with company representatives to help provide opportunities for our students and alumni in HTM/CSR to gain access to a broad range of employers, employment information and opportunities. Our Career fair will be organized and presented entirely by our HTM/CSR students. HTM offers our undergraduate major: Hospitality and Tourism Management for students interested in Food and Beverage, Hotel Management, Restaurant Management and Event Planning.  CSR offers three undergraduate majors: Selling and Sales Management, Retail Management, Financial Counseling and Planning.
