Casino Companies Recruiting at UMass Job Fair


AMHERST, Mass. (WGGB) — Several companies were at UMass Wednesday looking for prospective new employees.

The Hospitality and Tourism Management Department held is annual career day for undergraduates.

Representatives from hotels, cruise lines, amusement parks and more were on-hand to answer student questions.

This year, MGM, which is hoping to build resort casino in Springfield, was there as well, presenting internship and college programs.

“For HIP, it gives them an opportunity to learn about our company and our brand and things like that and also the hospitality industry. And with the MAP, it’s a program that’s rotational through one year, as long as they’re successfully completed, we give them a referral for management,” says My Chau-Pennepacker with MGM Eastern Regional College Talent Acquisition.

Mohegan Sun was also at today’s career fair. They’re hoping to build a casino in Revere.
