Central Federation

Moving Forward

Career Fair at DePaul University
On January 29, 2016 there will be a hospitality career fair hosted by DePaul University’s School of Hospitality Leadership. As with previous years, this event will be sponsored in part by the Central Federation. Helping to sponsor events like this is an important way we keep our strong bond with industry and give our students opportunities to find jobs, internships, and learn more about the variety of firms in the hospitality and tourism industry.

As with previous years, the career fair is free to attend for all faculty, staff, and students. In the coming weeks, you will see an invite come out that requires you to RSVP. I humbly ask that you share this invite with your faculty, staff, and students. Last year there were a record number of recruiters and students at the career fair in Chicago, and I know DePaul is aiming to break last year’s attendee records. As such, it’s very important that all attending students, faculty, or staff RSVP as name badges will be printed for all attendees. If you have any questions prior to the invite coming out, feel free to contact Dr. Nicholas Thomas (nthoma15@depaul.edu).
