Plan Your Career in a Day

If you were in the HUB two weeks ago during lunch time you might have been lucky enough to run into a Flash Mob interrupting your mad dash to the Chick-fil-A line. In case you missed the uproar, members from Career Services were attempting to attract students’ attention in honor of the upcoming Career Days.

Starting today and running through Thursday, Penn State students are welcomed to the Bryce Jordan Center in search of anything from full time jobs to summer internships. The three days each have their own specific areas of focus. Find out which day works best for your major and/or career interests.

For example, my double majors of Integrative Arts and Journalism fall under the non-technical category, so I will be attending my very first (yes, I’m a senior) Career Fair tomorrow. Wish me luck. Before you head over, check out the list of employers who are coming, and see what types of positions might be available.

What better time for another poll ranking than right now! As you may or may not have noticed, Penn State received top rankings amongst recruiters in today’s Wall Street Journal article. This is great news for all of those planning on graduating sometime soon as this “unemployment phase” does not seem to be ending in the near-future.

So prep those resumes, iron those suits, brush your teeth, and head over to the BJC these next few days to secure your spot in the job of your dreams. Or at least find something to keep your parents off your back for a few more months.

I'm quite odd, a little creepy, and pretty awkward, but we'd probably get along.

In real life I'm a THON 2011 Supply Logistics Captain, a Homecoming 2010 Public Relations Captain, a member of Zeta Tau Alpha, a dancer in ETCH Dance Co. and I tweet a lot.

Editor and graduating senior Caity Rogowski writes about living the questions, facing fears, sharing burdens, and accepting reality.

“If you’ve ever seen the movie You’ve Got Mail, you’ll understand me when I say I have the “Kathleen Kelly Syndrome.” I often have trouble saying exactly what I mean. Instead, I find it easier to outsource by using quotes or songs to convey my message. That’s why you’ll find a few of my favorites scattered throughout this post: my senior column.”
