Opportunities to Connect With Our Students
Here are some ways you can build upon our college-employer partnership, while getting to know our students. The more students and employers learn about each other, the better odds of finding the “perfect match” for both parties! All events are held at Hilton College, which is part of the Hilton University of Houston. All services, with the exception of Career Fair and Mini Career Fair, are offered free of charge.
HIRE HILTON COLLEGE
By posting your employment and internship positions on Hire Hilton College, our students and alumni can learn more about your company. Your posts also allow you to put your jobs in front of hundreds of potential qualified candidates. There is no limit to the number of positions employers/companies can submit. Once you register, just “select jobs” and add “new” to begin posting your positions.
Once a job posting has been submitted, we will review it. Most jobs are approved and available on the Hire Hilton College job boards within 24 business hours.

Mini Career Fair is typically held the first few weeks of each semester. This event is less formal than our biannual Career Fair, but is still a great opportunity for you to establish and build a presence on campus. Held in our South Wing student lobby, there are usually between 100 and 200 students who attend these mini fairs in between classes.
Career Fair takes place in October during the fall semester and in February during the spring. Held on a Thursday, Career Fair runs from 9:15 a.m. until noon, and is followed by a luncheon with a keynote speaker from 12:30 to 2 p.m. We also offer you the option to conduct same-day, on-campus interviews that afternoon or anytime the following day (Friday). In the fall, we also incorporate employer information sessions into our Industry Think Tank sessions, which are held on the Tuesday and Wednesday of Career Fair week.
EMPLOYER SPOTLIGHT DAY
Employer Spotlight Day is the time for you to reserve a table in our South Wing student lobby. In this casual, relaxed setting, you can share employment information with students coming and going from class and gain extra exposure for your company. If you are interested in reserving a table, we do request that you schedule this off-cycle recruiting event two weeks prior to the date you’d like to attend. This gives our Career Development team enough time to properly market your company to our students. We promote your attendance through announcements on Hire Hilton College, student ListServs, Facebook and flyers. We encourage you to forward your company logo as a jpeg for to us to include in our marketing flyers.
Availability – During both the fall and spring semesters, off-cycle recruiting options are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. Student traffic is best between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., but we are happy to accommodate your specific needs and can be flexible with this schedule. Please check out our Employer Spotlight calendar and select a date that works best for you!
NOTE: Student attendance for our off-cycle recruiting events can be unpredictable. Since many of our students are nervous about approaching an employer and initiating a conversation, we recommend that you engage them as they pass by your table.
If you are interested in guest lecturing as an industry expert for one of our classes, we are happy to add you to our list of potential speakers. Before the beginning of every semester, we send a list of names – along with subject matters – to our faculty for them to consider. If you are a good fit, they can add you to their class syllabus as a guest speaker.
Hilton College has 14 student organizations dedicated to the various segments of the hospitality industry. Connecting with these student organizations can be a great way to target students according to their interests, and introduce you to many of our student leaders.
