We are committed to providing our companies and students with high quality recruiting experiences. Our services to corporate recruiters include:
The Supply Chain Department offers an exclusive system (CareerLink) to our Supply Chain and MIS students and alumni seeking full-time employment. Post your open positions through CareerLink to connect with our students today!
- THIRD PARTY RECRUITERS:
Third-party organizations providing recruiting services for a fee will be required to:
- inform Career Services of the specific Employer(s) they represent and the specific jobs for which they are recruiting, and Career Services will verify the information;
- reveal the company names to students/alumni selected for an interview;
- allow Career Services to add to their job description the following statement: “Applicants, upon being selected for an interview, will be notified of the company name by the third-party recruiter.”
Career Services will request contact information for the organization for which the third party is providing recruiting services if/when there is concern related to a company. Career Services must respect the confidentiality of this information and may not publish it in any manner. Any disclosure of student information outside of the third-party recruiting organization and the company they are representing will be with prior consent of the student. Third-party recruiters that charge fees to students will not be permitted access to Career Services.
Supply Chain Career Fair
Every semester, The Center for Supply Chain Research(CSCR), in conjunction with the Department of Supply Chain and Information Systems, hosts a career fair targeting students and alumni interested in Supply Chain Management, Management Information Systems, Industrial Engineering, and Information Sciences and Technology. For more information on participation, please visit our CSCR Recruiting page.
- Spring Career Fair -- January 31 - February 1, 2017
- Fall Career Fair -- August 29 - 31, 2017
To schedule an information session, networking event, picnic, or any other type of event targeting supply chain and/or MIS students, please contact Ashley Kuhn at . Please note, larger events (beyond an info session or interviews) require at least a month in lead time to prepare for the event and complete the necessary paperwork.
Classroom Speaking Opportunities
Choose the dates that you’d like to come to campus and we will reach out to the faculty to see who has speaking opportunities on that date. You’ll present on the topic that the professor chooses, as it relates to his/her curriculum, but you can tailor it to the experiences in your company. Space in classrooms books quickly - contact us early to reserve your spot.
Our Mock Interview program is held once a semester (the week prior to our career fair) to help our students prepare for upcoming career fairs and interviews. It’s a great way to network and identify talent early in the recruiting season – and the students really appreciate it.
Connecting with Student Organizations
We have several student organizations that are always looking for companies to work with on specific events; CSCMP, APICS, BASH (Business & Society House), SAP SIG (SAP Student Interest Group) and MISA (Management Information Systems Association).
Our students are always interested in learning how to apply their classroom knowledge in real-world situations. Case studies/competitions are a great way to engage students, have fun, and market your brand.
The Center for Supply Chain Research (CSCR) and Corporate Sponsorship
Sponsorship through the Center is another great way to get involved. For more information on CSCR and all they have to offer, please visit http://www.smeal.psu.edu/cscr. Contact Tracie Shannon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
