IUP Alumni Encouraged to Return to Campus for Fall Recruitment Events

Posted on 7/1/2016 2:16:40 PM

IUP alumni are invited to attend the upcoming recruitment events being held in fall 2016.

“If you are an employer, please consider registering your company as a recruiter, or, if you are seeking employment, please check out the various opportunities available to alumni,” Tammy Manko, director of the IUP Career and Professional Development Center, said.

Jan Shellenbarger, who coordinates the IUP Accounting Career Fair and the IUP Career Expo and Graduate School Fair, said their department encourages alumni to return to campus to recruit. “We ask them to wear buttons that say, ‘I’m an IUP Grad—ask me how I got here,’” she said. “They always seem tickled to wear the buttons and share their experiences with current students.”

The upcoming career fairs, which will be held at the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex, include:

Accounting Career Day

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Career Expo

Wednesday, September 28, 2016

Safety Sciences Annual Career Fair

Thursday and Friday, October 13 and 14, 2016

B. Gail Wilson, chair of the Department of Communications Media, is working with department alumni to host a Communications Media Alumni Networking event on Friday, October 14 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the HUB Ohio Room. “"We hope our alumni will return to campus for Homecoming and take this opportunity to meet and talk to our current undergraduates.” Alumni interested in participating should contact Wilson directly at bgwilson@iup.edu.

Alumni who are seeking employment can attend the fairs for free, plus most of the services available in the Career and Professional Development Center are available at no cost to students or alumni. Additional information can be obtained by calling 724-357-2235.
