Join Us for Goal in the Grove, September 12

Posted on 9/7/2018 2:18:16 PM

Join the IUP Career and Professional Development Center at their annual Goal in the Grove event on Wednesday, September 12, 2018, from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. in the Oak Grove.

Kelsey Thompson, assistant director of the CPDC, coordinates the event. “We wanted to let students know about the many services we offer in our department,” Thompson said. “We decided several years ago to have the event in the Oak Grove to gain additional exposure.”

CPDC team members will be situated in the center of the Grove under a large tent and will each have a station to explain specific services. “We’ll have information about career fairs, networking events, the Washington Center, National Student Exchange, the Handshake online job posting system, and how our career coaches can assist students and alumni,” Thompson said.

Grilled hot dogs and hamburgers will be offered free by Aramark, and Pita Pit and Insomnia Cookies are donating food. Students will have the opportunity to sign up for free prizes provided for the event by employers.

Representatives of the IUP Ambassadors and the IUP Student Philanthropy Council will also be on hand to talk to students about their organizations. “The SPC always appreciates the opportunity to engage with students, especially at a fun event such as Goal in the Grove,” Stephanie Sell, assistant director of Annual Giving and coordinator of the SPC, said.
