Career Day

Career Day 2017 – Friday, February 24

Penn State’s Stuckeman School will host its annual Career Day in February 2017. Our vibrant event enables professional firms to directly interact with the school’s award-winning students through a series of opportunities that encourage discovery, student engagement, and networking with alumni and professionals across the Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Graphic Design professions.

Our programs are consistently ranked among the top design programs in the country. Undergraduate programs (BLA, BArch, B.Design) and 2- to 3-year professional graduate programs (MLA, MArch) cultivate students who are technically prepared to make an immediate impact in professional practice. The research-focused graduate programs (MS in LA, MS in Arch, and Ph.D.) encourage our students towards deep investigations of complex problems.

Firm registration is now closed for this event. If you would like to be considered for the event waitlist, or are interested in participating in the open exhibition portion of Career Day, please feel free to contact Ross Weinreb ( for details.

We look forward to this fantastic gathering and appreciate your interest in engaging with our students.

Schedule and Event Information

RECENT ALUMNI PANEL: Thursday, February 23

CAREER DAY: Friday, february 24

  • All day firm exhibition with two dedicated open exhibition periods
  • Morning presentations
  • Lunch with firm attendees, faculty, and members of the Stuckeman Student Leadership
  • Afternoon presentations
  • Evening reception at the Nittany Lion Inn

Typically, presentations describe a firm’s or individual’s work, experiences, or philosophy. This time is immensely valuable to our students, particularly underclassmen who are discovering their career paths. Presenters will have access to a projector for displaying work images.

Each participating firm will be provided space in the exhibition area. In past years, the poster exhibition has been an excellent opportunity to engage with students and network with colleagues.

OPTIONAL INTERVIEWS: Saturday, february 25

  • Optional interviews with students (8:00am – 5:00pm)

Interview rooms at the Penn State Career Services Center may be scheduled for time with individual students. Firms are encouraged to schedule interviews to meet their current or expected needs. Firms must schedule their own interviews.

In an effort to facilitate pairing of students with firms, the Stuckeman School will provide a collection of résumés to firms in advance of Career Day from students who are seeking internships or employment opportunities.
