FAQ

Each year, HEC recruits over 150 students across every college at Cornell. Some of the most common questions we get during recruitment are:

How many teams can I apply for?

You are allowed to apply to up to three teams, though if you have interest in multiple departments, we strongly recommend you apply to more than one!

Do I need to be a Hotelie to join HEC?

Absolutely not! In fact, we want to include students from different backgrounds to provide us with new and interesting perspectives.

What is the weekly time commitment?

The weekly time commitment varies by position, especially between assistant directors and managers. However, the expected time commitments for each position are posted in the job manual.

Do I need any prior experience?

Not at all. We are seeking students who are passionate and want to learn more about the hospitality industry. Having skills that align with our needs is just a plus!
