Recent Career Fair Most Successful Yet

Over 20 regional employers were at Penn State Worthington Scranton on April 2, to talk to students who were looking for jobs and interested in careers with their companies.

The types of employers ranged from Kane Trucking to Shamrock Communications to the Federal Prison System.

Throughout the day, students, many with resumes in hand, approached company representatives to learn more about their organizations, potential employment opportunities, career potential and how to possibly get their foot in the door.

The job fair was arranged through the campus's Career Services department, and coordinated by Sophia Robles, Career Services Coordinator.   It was held in part of the campus cafeteria, The View.

"This Career Fair was truly a campus-wide effort," said Bill Bryan, Director of Student Services, adding that many departments and individuals contributed their time and efforts to the event, including Admissions, Student Activities, IT, the Lion Ambassadors and the faculty and staff. 

"This was the largest and most successful to date Career Fair on our campus," he said. "There were so many compliments coming from the prospective employers regarding how well they were received and treated throughout the day, and how impressed they were with our facilities and employees."
