Students at Pennsylvania Western University are invited to a series of panels and presentations that focus on preparing for careers.

The PennWest Career Readiness Series is an initiative that started over five years ago at California, Clarion and Edinboro – and has been adapted and rebranded for PennWest. Through the pandemic and integration, career center staff continued to collaborate and modify this event that brings alumni and employer experts in front of current students to present on career topics.

The 2023 Career Readiness Series features four virtual events for students to learn tips and skills for career and life success.
