Our Recruiting Advantage

At Penn State we deliver a nationally recognized hybrid recruiting program that includes a strong University-wide Career Services Center in partnership with specialized college-supported career offices. Because Penn State is such a large institution, employers are encouraged to take a “blended” approach to recruiting, utilizing the services of both the University’s central Career Services office and the college-supported career offices.

Career Services can help you navigate the University at large and coordinate your recruiting efforts across the academic colleges and campuses. The college-supported career offices, by contrast, primarily focus on co-op and internship recruitment and have their own online job posting systems, although some offices also post full-time positions.
