Syeven E. DannenhowerEmployers recruiting from the varied Penn College majors that provide the manufacturing sector with a well-prepared workforce – from welding to plastics to electronics, just for starters – were duly impressed with the caliber of students they encountered at this month's campus Career Fair. Where past years have seen imminent graduates fish for jobs with nary a nibble, this year's marketplace found more demand than supply. "It's really nice to be wanted around the Career Fair," said Steven E. Dannenhower, a manufacturing engineering technology major and Presidential Student Ambassador. "Especially, too, when you're walking by and most of them ... will just stop and grab you and say, 'Hey, don't go anywhere. I'll be right back. ... I need to talk to you. There's a couple of jobs lined up for you." For more on manufacturers' eye-opening impression of Penn College students, visit the college's YouTube site.
