On Nov. 1, representatives of several companies and businesses visited Central Penn for the quarterly job fair to offer interesting insight, information and opportunities for those nearing graduation in search of a job or an internship opportunity.

Among the 20 or so different businesses with table/booths inside Central Penn’s Conference Center were representatives who could appeal to any student’s major.

About 30 students attended, with most present from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Some of the businesses offered opportunities to multiple majors. Some offered different jobs to a single major, and the rest had only one job or internship opportunity for a single major.

Central Penn College Career Services Director Steve Hassinger and Associate Director Rubina Azizdin organized the event to give students the opportunity to bridge the gap between their collegiate and professional careers.

This wasn’t the first job fair the college has offered, and it definitely won’t be the last. If you’re a student who missed out on the opportunity to build relationships with potential employers, make sure you’re at the next job fair!
