Job Search Timelines

All engineering students are strongly encouraged to start thinking about their career preparation as soon as they arrive at the University.

At an institution the size of Penn State, there are a wide variety of extracurricular opportunities to explore—including options to study or work abroad and to complete co-op or internship experiences—and it takes advance planning to fit everything you may want to do into the (relatively short) time you have as a student!

Our undergraduate and graduate job search timelines may be helpful as you incorporate career planning into your schedule.
