Fall Career Days
September 21-23, 2021
11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. EST

Fall Career Days 2021 Update

In order to continue to provide all of our students and employers a safe and successful experience, Penn State is planning a hybrid Fall Career Days event. 

  • Tuesday, September 21
    IN-PERSON Full-Time Recruitment

  • Wednesday, September 22
    VIRTUAL Full-Time, Internship and Co-op Recruitment

  • Thursday, September 23
    VIRTUAL Internship and Co-op Recruitment

Safe Recruiting

All attendees must wear masks when attending indoor events, per Penn State policy

Why hybrid?

It's been a unique year for talent recruitment for our employers and our students. After hearing positive feedback about virtual career fairs in the spring, receiving input from Penn State Administration, and asking our employers and students what they need, Fall Career Days is presenting a hybrid model.

Benefits of a hybrid career fair:

  • Health and safety for attending students and recruiters by limiting the amount of in-person recruiting to our full-time seeking seniors

  • Access to all our students from across the Commonwealth and World Campuses

  • Cost savings by providing more economical options to reduce travel and overhead for recruiters while offering the same high-quality event, virtually

Event Schedule

Fall Career Days includes three days of career fair along with supplemental events and interviews throughout the week.
