Penn students are fortunate to have many opportunities to meet employers who work with Career Services each year to conduct interviews, attend career fairs, or hold employer information sessions. This year Career Services is offering opportunities for employers to connect with Penn students through both in-person events on campus as well as virtual options. Please review the event details in Handshake carefully to determine whether a specific event will be held on campus or virtually. If you have questions, certainly feel free to connect with a career advisor by scheduling an appointment on Handshake or reserving a “same day advising” meeting for quick questions. Because many employers continue to rely heavily on virtual interviewing, students may also reserve a private room in the on-campus recruiting suite (Suite 90, McNeil Bldg., 3718 Locust Walk) to participate in the interviews between 9:00 – 5:00 PM Monday – Friday. Reservations can be made here.
Each year hundreds of employers conduct first-round interviews with Penn students for post-graduate and internship opportunities. While interviewing activity is most robust in the fall, employers may conduct interviews throughout the academic year. Employers may hold in-person interviews in the recruiting suite in McNeil or may opt to schedule their interviews through Handshake but conduct them virtually. Find out more here!
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. Employer may chose to hold on-campus or virtual sessions. This is your chance to both learn and network!
Career Services coordinates a variety of career fairs each year open to students seeking internship and post-graduate opportunities across a wide range of industries. See the complete listing here! Both virtual and in-person career fairs are organized by Career Services.
