Career Day: An Unemployed Perspective

Well, I made it through my first career day experience alive and jobless (sorry mom). Recruiters from companies such as Lockheed Martin, Target, and Dick’s Sporting Goods lined up their info booths and chatted up eager students on the brink of entering the real world.

Most of the companies accepted resumes and directed students to their websites. Some of these companies were there to do that and only that–they weren’t even looking to fill positions!

The Pennsylvania based non-profit KidsPeace, as well as the US Peace Corps, stood out as the most unique organizations represented.

The longest lines were at the GE, Blackrock, American Eagle, and Penn State tables.

Today’s career fair focuses primarily on internships and co-ops, while Thursday’s focus is on technical majors. Make sure you check out the list of employers who will be in attendance so you can prepare questions ahead of time.

About the Author

Caity Rogowski

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.”
