Although students and employers will not be able to meet in person on Penn’s campus during Fall 2020 due to Covid 19, there will fortunately be many opportunities to connect with hundreds of employers virtually through interviews, career fairs, and information sessions. Information on these options is below. If you have questions, certainly feel free to connect with a career advisor by scheduling an appointment on Handshake or reserving a “same day virtual drop in” for quick questions.
Because things are rapidly changing in the current climate, we urge students to regularly check both the OCI (on campus interviews) and non-OCI job and internship postings in Handshake as some employers who traditionally have participated in on-campus interviews will instead post their job or internship opportunity in Handshake and then coordinate their interviews outside of the traditional OCI process.
Virtual "On Campus" Interviews
Each year hundreds of employers conduct first-round interviews with Penn students for post-graduate and internship opportunities. While OCI activity is most robust in the fall, employers may conduct interviews throughout the academic year. During Fall 2020, we will be coordinating virtual “OCI” interviews. Find out more here!
Virtual Employer Information Sessions and Workshops
Employer information sessions and employer-led workshops provide excellent opportunities for students to both learn about the particular organization and to meet representatives, often Penn alumni, employed by the organization. This is your chance to both learn and network!
Virtual Career Fairs
Career Services coordinates over a dozen career fairs each year open to students seeking internship and post-graduate opportunities across a wide range of industries. All fairs will be virtual in Fall 2020. See the complete listing here!
