It’s a shame that these representatives do not stay for the entire job fair. My son had classes he could not miss. He ran home after his last class, showered, dressed in his suit and headed to the job fair only to find there were only three representatives in his career field left for him to see. He was extremely disappointed.

Thank you for sharing your son’s experience, Jennifer. While Penn College Career Services encourages employers to interact with students until the Career Fair ends at 4 p.m., that is not always possible given individual employer circumstances and responsibilities. Luckily, each employer’s contact information and the names of the company representatives who attended the fair are listed on the Penn College Career Fair website. I would encourage your son to work with Career Services to develop a letter of introduction and email his resume to his targeted employers.
