Career Fair Offers Connection to Thousands of Jobs
Tuesday’s Career Fair provided Penn College students and alumni the opportunity to meet hundreds of prospective employers – including Fortune 500 companies – recruiting for 2,244 full-time jobs, internships and other positions. In three locations on and off campus (the Schneebeli Earth Science Center, Bardo Gymnasium and the Breuder Advanced Technology and Health Sciences Center), Career Services and its far-flung team afforded job-seekers with well-appointed venues in which to mingle with business/industry representatives.
