Penn State New Kensington

This Penn State-exclusive event brings representatives from approximately 20 employers to talk with PSNK students, faculty and recent graduates about career paths, internships and opportunities within their organizations related to  academic majors and career interests. This is MORE than just a job & internship fair -- it's an opportunity for students to meet and network with local organizations to network and make connections, ask questions about careers in your major and generate some leads on internships or jobs in your field.

Career Connections Day is a "reverse career fair" being held in conjunction with the annual Research and Student Engagement Expo creating opportunities for local organizations to learn about the many research and creative projects happening here at Penn State New Kensington and to meet some of the student researchers and their faculty mentors.  Events that day start with a networking lunch for student and employer participants.

We hope you will enjoy this day and make the most of the many opportunities to be found here!  Please reach out to Jim Shields in Career Services with any questions at [email protected].
