WHY: Walt Disney World conducted a similar recruiting session at Hudson Valley in November 2001, and hired seven Hudson Valley students as a result. The hospitality positions are paid internships that give Hudson Valley's students a chance to learn from an entertainment industry leader. Students who meet the qualifications and are hired will benefit from educational and networking opportunities at Walt Disney World in Florida.
