Students flock to Spring Career Fair

University Park, Pa. -- Penn State senior Zac Litvinoff dressed in his business best and headed to the Bryce Jordan Center on Tuesday, Feb. 15. "I graduate this year. A job would be nice," he said when asked why he attended the Spring Career Days event being held at the BJC.

Litvinoff and more than 1,500 of his job-seeking peers attended the event on Tuesday, the first day of the two-day event organized and run by Penn State Career Services. Representatives of 315 organizations and businesses, some of whom are Penn State graduates themselves, were on hand to talk with Penn State students interested in seeking work experience and employment. Employer registration increased 33 percent between the 2010 and 2011 spring events, according to officials at Career Services.

Spring Career Days, and its fall semester counterpart, Fall Career Days, are open to any Penn State student, independent of major or semester standing, and may be attended free of charge.
