Natty Nittany: Fall Career Fair ‘Fits

Penn State students dressed to the nines as they went to seek out possible employers at Tuesday’s in-person portion of the university’s Fall Career Days at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Students were eager for the opportunity to sell themselves at the first in-person career fair since the start of the pandemic. Naturally, they needed to look sharp, too.

Owen Kraisinger and Luke Fichner

Owen Kraisinger and Luke Fichner, both seniors in mechanical engineering, showed up looking their best.

“It’s nice to break it out,” Fichner said.

“It’s nice to represent myself, my school,” Kraisinger added.

Olivia Palmieri

Olivia Palmieri, a graduate student in engineering science and mechanics, looked professional in her suit from Anne Taylor. Palmieri said she was hoping to find a full-time job at the fair.

Carianne Lovas and Elena Lagunilla

Carianne Lovas, a senior biomedical and mechanical engineering major, said she felt confident in her seafoam green blouse and was hoping for a manufacturing job at the fair. Elena Lagunilla, a senior biomedical major, said she was looking for a full-time offer from the fair, too.

Nic Florek

Nic Florek, a senior finance major, said he likes to “keep it simple” with his professional attire. Florek wanted to see what the companies present at the fair had to offer.

Emma Jaffe and Elizabeth Albert

Emma Jaffe and Elizabeth Albert, both seniors, didn’t come to play around in their high contrast outfits. Jaffe said she was exploring her options for post-grad, while Albert attended the fair to help a company with which she is already interning.

There are still some virtual Career Day opportunities left this week, which may only require professional attire from the waist up. Either way, we don’t judge.
