Fall Engineering Networking Reception
Tuesday, September 13, 2016
Ballroom, The Nittany Lion Inn
The Fall Engineering Networking Reception gives recruiters an opportunity to mingle with Penn State engineering students prior to the Technical Recruiting Day at Fall Career Days.
This event is meant to be less formal than a career fair, permitting more time for one-on-one and small-group conversations between students and recruiters regarding the employers represented and available job opportunities. In the past, we have asked students not to take along copies of their résumés; however, due to the high number of students requesting to do so, we are now advising them to take a few résumés to give recruiters who specifically request them.
Registration Types, Costs, and Cancellation Policy
Please note: Registration for this event is closed as of August 8, 2016, as we have reached venue capacity.
