The IUP Spring 2015 Career Fair being held on Tuesday, February 17, at the Hadley Union Building (HUB) from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. will bring more than 70 companies and organizations to campus for recruitment purposes.

According to Jan Shellenbarger, special events coordinator for the Career and Professional Development Center, two separate spring fairs were held in previous years, with the Summer Employment and Internship Fair in February and the Criminology/Government/Public Service Fair normally occurring in March.

The decision was made this year to combine the two into one Spring Career Fair, which has proved popular with employers. “We usually hosted approximately 40 employers for the summer fair and 20 for the public service fair,” Shellenbarger said. “By combining the fairs we are able to provide both the employers and students with a wider array of choices.”

All majors and class levels are invited to attend. Business attire is not required, but it is preferred. Students are advised to check out the list of employers in advance and pick the top five to ten they would like to visit, and learn more about the company, opportunities, and think about how their skills fit with the company’s needs.
