Fall Engineering Networking Reception

Tuesday, September 12, 2017
6:00–8:00 p.m.
Ballroom, The Nittany Lion Inn

The Fall Engineering Networking Reception gives recruiters an opportunity to mingle with Penn State engineering students prior to the Technical Recruiting Day at Fall Career Days.  All undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Engineering, as well in engineering majors in the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, are welcome.

This event is meant to be less formal than a career fair, permitting more time for one-on-one and small-group conversations between students and recruiters regarding the employers represented and available job opportunities.

In the past, we have asked students not to take along copies of their résumés; however, due to the high number of students requesting to do so, we are now advising them to take a few résumés to give recruiters who specifically request them.

Fees and Setup

Please note that registration for this event is closed, as we have reached venue capacity.

The attendee registration cost for is $450; sponsor registration is $1,000 (both non-refundable), payable either by check or by credit card at the time of registration.

Both attendee and sponsor registrations include one designated three-foot round by four-foot high cocktail table with a tablecloth and a sign with your employer logo; sponsor registrations also include highly visible placement in The Nittany Lion Inn Atrium (located right outside the Ballroom) and your logo featured on posters at the event.

Due to the size limitations of the cocktail tables, please do not bring display boards or other promotional materials from your company or organization.
