Penn State students who want career guidance can always find those resources at career services offices on campus. Now Penn State's online learners have access to many of these same career planning services, only virtually.
While a wealth of rankings and surveys annually give Penn State high marks, one recent ranking reflecting students' career prospects after graduation has the University rated the best in the nation. In its special "Paths to Professions" section on Sept. 13, the Wall Street Journal published results of a survey of 479 corporate recruiting executives in nearly 30 industries, with Penn State named the No. 1 overall institution in the nation for producing the best prepared, most well-rounded graduates who are most able to succeed once hired.
