Search for Jobs in Hospitality

Appointments can be scheduled through Handshake and will be conducted virtually, as walk-in appointments are not currently being accepted at the Career Services Center. Once an appointment is scheduled and approved, students will receive an email with additional information on how to access their appointment via telephone or video conference. As always, the college is committed to being a resource for our students and alumni, and we welcome your inquiries at boughnercareerservices@unlv.edu.
