Fall Career Days Hosts Surprise Performance in HUB

12:39 p.m. Unsuspecting students walk through the HUB, trays of Chick-fil-A and textbooks in hand.

12:40 p.m. “Let’s Get It Started” by the Black Eyed Peas blasts through the speakers. The Nittany Lion and a group of students wearing baby blue “Ask Me I Can Hire” t-shirts break out in a choreographed dance right in the middle of the HUB.

This flash event was organized by the people behind Fall Career Days. Kristen Hartman, marketing and PR coordinator for the career fair, who, after the crowd had finally dispersed, explained, “[This] was a four month process of planning.” The dancers were a combination of Penn State Cheerleaders, Lionettes, and Lion Ambassadors.

Holly Temple, Interim Associate Director of Programming Career Services, was extremely pleased with how everything went. Temple expressed how the goal of today was get students aware and excited about Fall Career Days, which is being held in the Bryce Jordan Center September 13-17. In the still lukewarm job market, students need to take advantage of everything Penn State has to offer.

As a side note: According to some cheerleaders at the event, Clint Gyory, who dons the beloved Lion suit and who is supposed to be suspended until at least October, is believed to have been in costume at the event, since the suspension does not start until September.
