The GKN Career Services Center at Penn State DuBois is located in 102 Hiller Building and assists students in their career exploration, skill development and job search.

Students are encouraged to utilize career services from their first semester on campus to their last and even beyond.

We offer individual counseling sessions for students to explore the many career options with the following options: assessment tools, information interviews, job shadowing and lion link.

We use the above tools to shape our conversations and create a plan.  We use job shadowing and informational interviews to help students further explore their field.  

This office also conducts individual or group workshops on topics such as: resume writing, cover letters, interviewing skills, portfolio preparation and dining etiquette to name a few. 

We have a career library for students to use and we can also assist students in identifying an internship opportunity. Internships can offer students work experience which will assist in leading to employment.

In addition, as you prepare to leave the University, we can assist you in preparing a job search strategy, mock interviews and searching for a graduate school program that fits your needs.

We can build an individualized plan just for you!

Penn State is the #1 overall institution of higher education for producing the best prepared, most well-rounded graduates who are most able to succeed once hired, according to a Wall Street Journal survey released in September.

The Journal surveyed 479 corporate recruiters whose companies last year hired 43,000 new graduates. Of those 479 recruiters, 436 ranked Penn State #1. A sample recruiter comment cited by the Journal was: “Bright, well-rounded students … with the core competencies we desire.” Read the article here and for the Penn State DuBois Career Services Homepage click here.
