It’s that special time of year again! Spring Career Days begins today at the Bryce Jordan Center, and will run from 11:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and tomorrow. Check the list below to make sure you go on the right day for your major:

Monday, February 6

  • Human Services
  • Liberal Arts
  • Sales and Marketing

  • Research

For more information about the career days and what companies are going to be at the BJC, check out the Penn State Career Service website at http://careerfairs.psu.edu/spring/.

Two key pointers if you decide to go — even if they probably sound like your mother’s nag rather than advice — update your resume and wear appropriate attire. The last thing you want to do when meeting with an employer is to hand him or her a copy of your resume to just realize you forgot a key factor or forgot to delete a unimportant one.

As for appropriateness in your “business casual” — don’t take the casual part too seriously. I recall witnessing a girl at one of the fall career days wearing bright pink and green mini skirt, along with a top and fish net stockings. Ladies, unless you plan to do your night shift at a dock-side bar, please keep it simple with a blouse, button down shirt, trousers, khakis, or a skirt that covers the majority of your thighs.

As for seniors, make the most out of these two days and don’t let senioritis get the better of you.

May is closer than you think.
