Penn College Manufacturing Students in Demand


Syeven E. DannenhowerEmployers recruiting from the varied Penn College majors that provide the manufacturing sector with a well-prepared workforce – from welding to plastics to electronics, just for starters – were duly impressed with the caliber of students they encountered at this month’s campus Career Fair. Where past years have seen imminent graduates fish for jobs with nary a nibble, this year’s marketplace found more demand than supply. “It’s really nice to be wanted around the Career Fair,” said Steven E. Dannenhower, a manufacturing engineering technology major and Presidential Student Ambassador. “Especially, too, when you’re walking by and most of them … will just stop and grab you and say, ‘Hey, don’t go anywhere. I’ll be right back. … I need to talk to you. There’s a couple of jobs lined up for you.” For more on manufacturers’ eye-opening impression of Penn College students, visit the college’s YouTube site.
