Primed ghouls and goblins, current students and alumni, registered for the House of Success Career Fair, will login to their meetings professionally dressed and equipped with credentials such as resumes, cover letters, and business cards. The goal is to find the ideal employer among the 95 attending the virtual career fair. Among the employers at the Career Fair are hoteliers like Loews Hotels at Universal Orlando, Marriott Corporation, Rosen Hotels & Resorts, restaurant groups like Chipotle, First Watch, and Bento Asian Kitchen + Sushi, as well as the theme parks.

Under the supervision of the head of the House of Success, Steven Brinkman, instructor for the Career Fair class entitled Event Operations, Rosen College senior students produce this event in just a few weeks as part of the curriculum grade.

According to Brinkman, "The Career Fair held at the UCF Rosen College of Hospitality Management twice a year gives our students the opportunity to gain a career in event management, entertainment management, hospitality, travel and tourism, food and beverage, airlines, cruises and even healthcare. We fully prepare our students in resume development and successful interviewing techniques to obtain long-term placement and advancement in their career."

The Career Fair begins at 10:00 a.m. and runs through 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 29, 2020 on the Career Fair Plus app and by appointment in the computer lab at the UCF Rosen College campus at 9907 Universal Blvd., Orlando, FL 32819.
