Spring Career Fair


Business and industry from across the country attended Penn College’s on-campus Career Fair this week to offer thousands of opportunities to tomorrow makers. Students and alumni attending the fair – chronicled in this PCToday photo gallery – purposefully strolled the Field House and Bardo Gymnasium in search of recruiters with whom to network and learn what internship and job opportunities are available. Tuesday’s opening of Penn College’s two-day Career Fair attracted broadcast interest from the area’s NBC and ABC affiliates. WBRE’s Morgan Parrish and WNEP’s Kristina Papa both visited campus Tuesday, talking with Career Services staff, students and employers involved in the premier networking event.
