Campus students, alumni may attend career days at Bryce Jordan Center

9/5/2011 —


11:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m., Tuesday-Thursday, Sept. 20-22

Penn State's largest career fair, the annual Fall Career Days, opens from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 20 to 22, at the Bryce Jordan Center on the University Park campus. More than 400 national and regional employers will be recruiting for internships, full-time and part-time positions in all technical and non-technical majors.

Fall Career Days is the best opportunity for all Penn Staters, students and alumni, to meet with major state and national recruiters. Not only is this an excellent opportunity to gain employment, but it is a great learning experience and offers "real life" practice for professional presentation, interviewing and networking skills.

Jim Shields, career services coordinator at Penn State New Kensington, encourages campus students searching for internships and post-graduation employment to attend. The Fall Career Days website is a source of information about the employers who will be in attendance, and it offers the option for students to submit their resumes online before the fair with the possibility of setting up interviews on the day of the event.

The Penn State New Kensington office of Career Services provides comprehensive career planning, education and job search support services for students and alumni of Penn State. For information about Career Services at the campus or to schedule an appointment, call Shields at 724-334-6065 or xjs8@psu.edu.

Gifts from corporate supporters count toward the goals of For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students. This University-wide fundraising effort is directed toward a shared vision of Penn State as the most comprehensive, student-centered research university in America. The University is engaging Penn State’s alumni and friends as partners in achieving six key objectives: ensuring student access and opportunity, enhancing honors education, enriching the student experience, building faculty strength and capacity, fostering discovery and creativity, and sustaining the University’s tradition of quality. The campaign’s top priority is keeping a Penn State degree affordable for students and families. The For the Future campaign is the most ambitious effort of its kind in Penn State’s history, with the goal of securing $2 billion in private support by 2014. Penn State New Kensington's goal is $3 million.
