Student Experience

"I already have a job lined up, and I have to thank Career Services for that. They do so much for the students when it comes to trying to set up opportunities to get jobs. That’s another awesome part about the school. I had three offers to choose from because they set up a huge career fair."

On-Campus Information Sessions

Employers often visit Penn College throughout the academic year to provide information sessions. The sessions allow you to learn more about the organization and meet company representatives in a less formal setting than an interview.

Students are encouraged to check the portal for announcements related to upcoming employer visits.

On-Campus Interviews

Employers who visit campus are looking to hire. It's important to take the interview process seriously and prepare in advance. Career Services can help you develop your resume as well as provide interview tips. Contact us to setup a mock interview and practice everything from the handshake to how you answer the questions. Utilize the Career Services student lab and print resumes on resume paper. We also recommend having business cards ready to give to employers.
