Recruiter Turnout At Career Days Up Nine Percent
Despite everything that has happened over the last year, recruitment opportunities for Penn State students are looking better — not worse — than they did last fall. Penn State reported that the 2012 Fall Career Days will most likely see a nine percent increase in company turnout from last year’s career fair, jumping from 500 to an expected 545 potential employers in attendance.
“Since last November, all activity has steadily increased between six to nine percent, from each of the Career Days to on-campus interviewing,” Jeff Garis, director of Career Services, told Penn State Live. “We’ve been really vigilant with recruitment numbers, and everything is showing an increase.”
Although just 515 companies are signed up as of now, Career Services is expecting more companies to register before the start of the Fall Career Days on Tuesday, September 11th, anticipating 220 internship/co-op organizations and 325 technical, full-time organizations.
