Industry representatives, including many who were either IUP alumni and/or department alumni, happily returned to offer students the opportunity to interview with their company and to pursue both entry-level career jobs or internship positions in all operational areas.

These included restaurant management, lodging operations including front desk and housekeeping, food and beverage including fine dining, resort and amusement park (attraction management), gaming operations, special events management, tourism management, contract management, club management, concessions management, and catering.

Students interested in pursuing graduate school were able to meet graduate coordinators in affiliated programs.
