Career Services Addresses Student Internship Concerns

Last week was certainly a whirlwind of emotions for the Penn State community. As a result of the bombardment of negative attention cast upon the university in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal and the subsequent riot, rumors swirled that students have been losing their internships.

To address these rumors, Jeff Garis, senior director of Career Services, delivered a message to students and potential employers, which was sent out on Friday the 11th. In the message, Garis stated that Career Services “has not seen any reduction or cancellations in recruiting that would be attributed to recent events.”

It was also noted that the University has “recorded increases in fall semester employer recruiting activity when compared to the past several years.”

Additionally, Garis suggested a general response to possible questions about the scandal in an interview situation. He also addressed potential employers who may have reservations about hiring a Penn State student. These can be viewed in the .pdf file below.
