FAQs for Employers

Q. What is a Career Exploration Expo? How is it different from the Career Days at University Park?
A.
The primary purpose of this exposition is to inform our students about the types of career choices available after graduation. It also allows our students a first-hand experience in practicing professional skills in a networking environment. We encourage employers to discuss employment and internship opportunities if there are openings within your companies/organizations, as we will have students and alumni seeking internships and employment opportunities. 

Q. What is the employer networking lunch?
A.
The networking lunch is another opportunity for our students to interact with registered employers in a more casual yet professional setting. The students attending the lunch are students who registered and attended the early morning conference only. These students will be from a variety of majors and careers from each of the 5 Eastern Region campuses.

Q. Is there a fee to participate in the Career Exploration Expo?
A.
No. We are not currently charging for the event.

Q. What time may I set up my booth?
A.
You may begin checking in and setting up by 11:00am. We will have volunteers assisting employers with check-in upon arrival.

Q. Will I be assigned to a table or is it first-come, first-served?
A.
You will be assigned a table due to the fact that we are providing students and alumni a map of registered employers.

Q. What if I have special set-up needs or need usage of electrical outlets?
A.
Please let us know as early as possible if you have any special set-up needs or requests. We will try our best to make accommodations. Due to limited electrical outlets, these requests must be made in advance and there is a possibility that we may not be able to accommodate all requests. Please contact wbcareer@psu.edu.
