UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State students have the opportunity to find a career path that makes a difference at the Penn State C.A.R.E. Fair, to be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 22, in the Alumni Hall at the HUB–Robeson Center. Over 100 recruiters will be offering both full-time and internship opportunities.

“The C.A.R.E Fair — which stands for Community, Agency, Recreation and Education — is unique from other fairs,” said Elizabeth Fegert, career fairs coordinator at Penn State Career Services. “It is open to any student of any academic year or major who is seeking experience in fields related to the well-being of others. There truly is something for everyone.”

Organizations in attendance will be seeking students in health and human services, park and recreation management, hospitality, public service, non-profit and volunteering realms. Check out the employers attending on the event website.

Students can prepare by having their resume reviewed at Career Services. Drop-in counseling is held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday-Friday at the Bank of America Career Services Center and from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesdays. Students should also research employers before the fair.

This event is cosponsored by Career Services and the Colleges of Education, Health and Human Development and the Liberal Arts. For students looking to identify and achieve their career goals, career counselors and Career Services programs are helpful resources. Career Services is a unit of Penn State Student Affairs.
