UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State’s Spring Career Days will return to campus next week. The two day hiring event will take place Tuesday, Feb. 4, and Wednesday, Feb. 5, at the Bryce Jordan Center on the University Park campus.

More than 250 organizations from across the country will arrive to participate over two days of recruiting activity.

Students seeking full-time, internship, or co-op opportunities in business, communications, and health and human services disciplines should look to attend on Tuesday (Feb. 4). Wednesday (Feb. 5) will bring organizations seeking students interested in full-time, internship or co-op opportunities in engineering, science and computer tech.

Both event days are open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Courtney Patterson, interim career fair coordinator with Penn State Career Services, a division of Student Affairs, is excited about seeing the event come together for both employers and students.

“Career Services is thrilled to host over 250 companies at Spring Career Days,” she said. “We are excited to offer excellent career opportunities to all Penn State students and alumni as well as the general public. We hope everyone who attends will have positive and impactful conversations.”
