Career services ranked No. 2 in the country
Penn State's career services programming and the commitment of advisers to practice a student-centered approach were a large part of the reason the University ranked second in the nation among "colleges with the best career services," according to an independent, student-published guide to college.
College Magazine noted the powerful combination of Penn State's size -- making it regular stop for recruiters seeking a big, talented pool of potential employees -- and the personal attention provded by advisers to students.
In addition, for students in the College of Communications, a dedicated, three-person staff in the Office of Internships and Career Services complements University-wide efforts that make Penn State a top school that helps students get a job. Efforts to benefit students in the College include two communications-specific job fairs each year and a notification system that makes students aware of internship openings as they happen. Those notifications are sent to students by email.
College Magazine is the ultimate, uncensored guide to college. Written entirely by students and for students, it covers real issues that affect the campus community nationwide. It offers academic and career advice, inspiring student features, NCAA sports coverage and much more.
