By Paul Miller

Knightly News Co-Adviser

On our latest edition of the Knightly News Podcast, we welcome Career Services Director Steve Hassinger to talk about the upcoming Central Pennsylvania Employment Consortium Job Fair, as well as speaking with new Knightly News Media Club President Brian Christiana.

The podcast is joined by Sharon Kelly, her first time on the podcast, as well as being hosted by Co-adviser Paul Miller.

During our discussion with Hassinger, he tells us about the importance of attending networking events and job fairs such as CPEC.

This job fair is also quite unique in that, “Some employers will come out to a job fair held by a consortium like this that may not come to (smaller job fairs)”, Hassinger notes.

Hassinger also promotes the services from his office that students can use to be successful at the fair.  He discusses the professional clothing available, resume assistance, career planning, as well as other services that may be helpful in preparation.

The fair takes place on Feb. 20 at the Radisson Hotel Harrisburg, located in Camp Hill, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.  No advance registration is required, but students do need to bring an updated resume, as this is part of the registration process.

Further information can be obtained by visiting http://cpec.info/ or by emailing Hassinger at stevehassinger@centralpenn.edu.

In the second segment of the podcast, we welcome newly crowned Knightly News Media Club President Brian Christiana.

Christiana, a sophomore, has been heavily involved in the club since arriving on campus.  His peers voted him to the position after former President Sherri Long completed her degree after the fall term.

On the show, Christiana discusses many initiatives that he has for the club, including more breaking news and spearheading the sports live stream and commentary project.

The Knightly News Media Club is in excellent hands with Christiana, as we look forward to a fantastic 2018 with him at the helm.

Knightly News Correspondent and former Vice President of the Media Club, Norman Geary, joined the Knightly News Podcast for his final news episode.

In the first segment, Geary discusses the recent Central Pennsylvania Employment Consortium (CPEC) job and internship fair, held Feb. 21, at the Radisson Hotel Harrisburg in Camp Hill.

While attending, Geary discussed some of the students he spoke with regarding the event, as well as giving unique insight to how to approach a job fair such as this.

Discussions also included a recap of the Knightly News’ recent open house and a debate about the feasibility of “Tuition Free” college education.

In the second segment, Romeo Azondekon, Chief Diversity Officer at Central Penn College, reviews the Black History Month Luncheon.

According to Azondekon, this luncheon was one of the most well attended events in the history of the college.

In addition, Azondekon highlights the upcoming Alternate Term Break, where Central Penn College students can venture to Toronto over the break between the winter and spring terms.

In Toronto, students will be immersed in the culture of the city, all while doing community service and offering students a unique opportunity without missing any classes.

The podcast is completed with a special note from the Knightly News Media Club to Geary.


Editor’s Note:  Geary has given a series of news podcasts over his last three terms and hopes to employ this experience at a future position after graduation.

Geary was one of the founding members of the Knightly News Media Club.
