Space a premium at Spring Career Day

If the number of companies who plan to participate in Spring Career Day at Pittsburg State University is any kind of economic barometer, the near-term future is good. David Hogard, assistant director, Experiential Education Programs, said this week that more than 90 companies have signed up for the event, which is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 15, in the Overman Student Center.

“It is going to be tight in the Student Center,” Hogard said, “but that just means more options and opportunities for Pitt State students.”

Hogard said the 94 companies and organizations that have registered make this a record turnout for Spring Career Day. Gold sponsors for the event are Ameriprise Financial, Crossland Construction, Farmers Insurance Group, and Nike. Other corporate sponsors are Aflac, Depco LLC, Farm Bureau Financial Services, Pulte Homes of Greater Kansas City and the Wolfe Automotive Group.

Spring Career Day is an opportunity for students who are looking for full-time employment as well as those in search of summer internships to make a good first impression. The companies and organizations represented at this year’s event offer a wide range of work environments, Hogard said, ranging from aeronautics, engineering and construction to retail sales, marketing and business administration.
