Build Your Brand on Campus
The Marriott Career Center offers an on-campus home to the hospitality industry. Through on-campus and online recruiting, workshops, and branded events, we connect you with our highly talented students. The Marriott Career Center staff will work with you to create a customized recruiting plan through our many engagement opportunities.
Skill workshops: Resume, cover letters, etiquette, professional dress workshops and LinkedIn photoshoots are held every semester. These can be led by the Marriott Career Center staff or industry professionals.
Industry Panels: Experts share their knowledge with students who wish to explore a specific sector of the hospitality industry. These typically include a networking component.
Post Online: Utilize our online recruiting tool, Handshake, to post opportunities for students and alumni. If you are already using Handshake as part of your recruitment efforts, please add Boston University to your list of schools. You can then upload any job and internship postings for Boston University. If you are not already using Handshake, please request an employer account on the Handshake website. You will then be able to upload any job and internship postings where our students can access them and apply.
Information Sessions: Present your brand and career opportunities to our students when you host an information session. These sessions are held from 5:00-6:00pm. These are typically held the evening before on-campus interviews.

Our student population is eager to connect with the hospitality industry. While a rigorous curriculum helps to prepare them for post-grad careers, we push our students to the next level.
School of Hospitality Administration students are required to complete two (2) 400-hour hospitality work experiences and one international experience. These requirements give them practical field experience and exposure to the global hospitality industry.
