CMHT Career Expo

The UNT College of Merchandising, Hospitality & Tourism invites you to the CMHT Career Expo on Wednesday, March 2, 2022 AND Thursday, March 3, 2022 at the University Union on the UNT Denton Campus.

The CMHT Career Expo combines all 6 majors in CMHT into 2 days of recruiting events to fill your part-time, full-time, and internship position vacancies. Our 6 majors include Merchandising, Home Furnishings Merchandising, Digital Retailing, Consumer Experience Management, Hospitality Management, and Event Design & Experience Management. Our 2 days feature industry information sessions, career expo preparedness stations, the career expo itself, a student networking luncheon, and interview sessions. Choose your sponsorship level based on how many days and opportunities you would like to have to interact with our students. See details below.

**Because our majors must work and intern within the retail (merchandising, eCommerce, consumer experience) or hospitality/event industries as part of their graduation requirements, we must require all employers at the CMHT Career Expo to also be within these industries.**
