Regional Opportunities Event
Friday, November 2, 2012

On behalf of the Associated Colleges (Clarkson University, St. Lawrence University, SUNY Canton, SUNY Potsdam) and Penski Staffing, we cordially invite you to attend our Regional Opportunities Event, to be held on Friday, November 2, 2012, hosted at Clarkson University.

This program is specifically designed to collaborate with and to meet the needs of small businesses, branches of larger companies, and non-profit organizations in the North Country and Adirondack region. Our goal is to encourage your organization to utilize and to recruit students for short-term projects, as well as summer, semester, internship, volunteer, full-time and part-time positions. All of our campuses have students who are interested in working regionally while in school, during the summer, and/or potentially on a full-time basis after graduation.

In order to offer the greatest return on your time investment, this year’s program will feature three distinct offerings, each at no cost. Depending on your needs, you may participate in any and/or all events.

Participation Options:
On the registration form, select all of the options that you would like to participate in. All options are available at no cost.

Post Positions & Collect Resumes: We will make your position(s) available to local college students, collect resumes of interested candidates, and forward to you in one document for review.

Attend the Fair:  Includes 8 foot space with table and two chairs, lunch certificate, and beverages. Take this time to speak with local students about how their skills could help fill your needs.

Conduct Interviews: Liked what you saw on the resumes or the students you met at the Fair and want to interview them formally? We will provide you with private space for 30 minute interviews. If you collected resumes ahead of time and have pre-selected candidates we will contact them to set up an interview time or you can fill your schedule with students you meet at the Fair.

The following is the schedule of events for Friday, November 2nd. The entire program will take place on the 2nd floor of the Student Center at Clarkson University.
