On our newest edition of the Knightly News Podcast, we welcome Career Services Director Steve Hassinger and Career Services Associate Rubina Azizdin to discuss several current and upcoming initiatives in the Career Resource Center on the Summerdale campus.

In our discussions with Hassinger, we looked more closely at the amazing service that the center offers, having a wide array of professional clothing at no cost for our students.

Hassinger discussed the quality of items, saying there were major designers available for the students who have for job interviews or are going to a job fair, have an upcoming class presentation, and even for the students to take a variety of clothing if they are in a current internship.

The podcast also discussed how unique this opportunity is, as Hassinger said he was unfamiliar with any other school that offered this type of resource.

For students to take advantage of this resource, they can go to the Career Resource Center in Bollinger 53 or contact stevehassinger@centralpenn.edu for an appointment.

In our second segment of the podcast, Career Services Associate Rubina Azizdin joined the show to discuss the upcoming Networking Reception, taking place on Aug. 31 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on the ATEC Patio.

During the reception, students will have the opportunity to speak with a wide variety of different individuals:

  • Faculty
  • Staff
  • Local business owners
  • Other important business people from the community

Azizdin discussed the need for students to attend events like this to practice their networking skills, something Azizdin says is essential for student success after graduation.

The event will feature appetizers, beverages, and other special surprises.  Professional dress is mandatory for the event.

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.

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.
