On this episode of the Knightly News Podcast, we welcome the Dean of Career Services and Development Steve Hassinger to discuss the upcoming CPEC Job Fair and the Dean of Equity and Student Success Megan Peterson to chat about the “What in the World Wednesday” program on the Summerdale campus.

During our time with Hassinger, we discuss the details of the CPEC Job Fair, which will take place on Feb. 15 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m at the Penn Harris Hotel in Camp Hill.

The job fair, which is put on by the Central Pennsylvania Employment Consortium, is put together each year for students of 13 local-area colleges and universities, including Central Penn College. All current students and alumni are welcome at the event.

During the segment, the show was also joined by Knightly News Vice President Jamie Harmon who shares her advice and best practices for students who will be attending the event.

Transportation from campus to the event is also available. Students should email careerservices@centralpenn.edu to arrange this transportation.

More information can be found at the CPEC Job Fair website. Students should dress business professional and bring copies of their resumes for distribution. Should you need professional dress, you can also email Career Services to schedule an appointment at the Career Closet.

On the second segment of the podcast, Dean of Equity and Student Success Megan Peterson stops by to chat about the “What in the World Wednesday” program that she has facilitated over the past two terms.

The program, focusing on open discussions of current events, is a way to allow students an opportunity to learn more about and participate in discussions surrounding crucial current events in the world.

Knightly News Reporter Sarah Whitmire also joined the program, sharing her experience with current events and the importance of these discussions for college students.

Not only are students able to attend, but faculty members are only encouraged to bring classes. Peterson said she can tailor the programs to news being discussed in the classes or surrounding the course’s subject matter.

The programs take place every other Wednesday at noon in the ATEC Student Lounge next to the Knight and Day Cafe. The next event will take place on Feb. 2, with two other programs taking place on Feb. 16 and March 2.
