Career Days Set To Begin In BJC

It’s officially the time of year again when upperclassmen converge on the Bryce Jordan Center, equipped with their best suits, pencil skirts, and, of course, résumés. Lots and lots of résumés. It’s time for the Fall Career Days.

From today through Thursday, just less than 500 different companies will set up shop in the BJC, looking for their next great employee. Major companies like Intel, KPMG, and Proctor and Gamble will be there, looking for both full-time employees and interns, so this isn’t a seniors-only event.

But with opportunities abound for full-time employment, the career fair is a chance for ambitious seniors to secure a job early in the year and chill for the rest of it. Plus, there are tons of freebies to grab even if you have no intention of working for a specific company, because who can turn down a free bottle of hand sanitizer?

The breakdown of days is below. Note that the fair goes from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day:

  • Tuesday, September 16 – Non-Technical Full-Time Career Day
  • Wednesday, September 17 – Internship and Co-Op Career Day
  • Thursday, September 18 – Technical Full-Time Career Day

Remember, the career fair is a great way to get your face out there, even if you don’t get an interview. With so many alumni recruiting for the event, it should be easy to make connections. Good luck this week, Penn State.
