Learn About Career Options at 2009 Safety Sciences Career Fair

Posted on 2/19/2009 9:44:25 AM

This year’s Safety Sciences Career Fair will take place on Thursday, October 1, and Friday, October 2, 2009. The fair on Thursday will be held at the Rustic Lodge, located at 2199 Oakland Avenue. Interviews will be held on Friday, October 2, in the Ohio, Monongahela, Susquehanna, and Allegheny rooms of the Hadley Union Building.

The fair provides an opportunity for Safety Sciences students to meet with company representatives to learn more about their companies and to discuss career options. The students will also be trying to secure co-op and internship positions for both spring and summer, as well as full-time employment. The companies participating to date are: Alcoa, Allegheny Energy, Allegheny Ludlum, Chevron, Concurrent Technologies Corp., ConocoPhillips, Eastern Alliance Insurance, Kokosing Construction, Marathon Petroleum, MC Dean, Norfolk Naval Shipyard, and Ryder.

We realize that, in this troubled economy, many companies are cutting back on expensive travel, so this year we are reducing our registration fee to $200. We hope this will enable a large number of companies to participate, which in turn will provide our students with a great opportunity.

Please download the Safety Sciences Career Fair Registration Form if you are interested in participating. The deadline to register is September 18, 2009.
