Engineering Networking Reception

February 1, 2022
6:00–8:30 p.m. 
Presidents Hall, The Penn Stater Hotel & Conference Center

The Engineering Networking Reception is a drop-in professional networking event that gives recruiters an opportunity to meet and mingle with undergraduate and graduate engineering students prior to the Engineering Career Fair.

Employer attire is business professional or business casual. Many employers wear clothing featuring a company or organizational name or logo. If you wish to wear a name tag, please bring one with you.

Setup and Materials

Each company or organization will be assigned one cocktail table at the venue. Given the space constraints, please do not bring booths, display boards, or any materials other than business cards (if desired). 

COVID-19 Information

At this time, Penn State is requiring all students, faculty, staff, and visitors—both vaccinated and unvaccinated—to wear masks indoors at all campuses. Universal masking is required in all classrooms—regardless of size—as well as in meeting rooms, common areas in residence halls, and at any indoor events. Disposable masks will be available at this event, if needed. 

We are also implementing or recommending other actions to help mitigate transmission of the coronavirus at this and other in-person events:

  • Hand sanitizer stations will be be available in different locations at the venue. We also recommend that participants bring their own sanitizing gels or wipes if possible.
  • We discourage handshaking to limit physical contact. Instead, we recommend addressing other event participants with a wave or a verbal greeting.
  • We discourage distribution of paper handouts and other giveaway items. While we encourage students to bring paper copies of their résumés in case they are requested, we are also recommending that students and employers alike share information electronically to the degree possible.

Your presence at this program, event, or activity indicates your agreement to adhere to all University policies, including health and safety policies, and your acknowledgement that you are voluntarily participating in this program, event, or activity. You further acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and assume any and all risk of exposure to or infection by it or any variant thereof, including, without limitation, personal injury, illness, severe complications, permanent disability, and/or death.
