Career Services: Partnering with Business and Industry

More and more students are graduating with four-year degrees from Penn State Altoona. As this number increases, so does the need for expanded career preparation. This need drove the complete renovation of the College's career services office, which opened last fall. Students now are offered a host of services that fully prepare them in the job search process. And employers are able to showcase their organizations and connect with future graduates as potential employees.

"As business and industry expand throughout central Pennsylvania, it is imperative that employers and educators partner to ensure a viable workforce for our region," stated Rebecca B. Maguda, director of the career services office.

The renovated career services office houses three private interview rooms for potential employers to meet individually with students, a conference room with multi-media capabilities, a career library, offices for three staff members, and a spacious reception area.
