Show off your company culture

Invite students to see your workplace in action! KPDC Career Treks take students to cities across the country to get a first-hand look at organizations. This is an opportunity to showcase your company's mission, values, and organizational culture, and meet students interested in internships or full-time positions. 

Let's talk travel plans. Contact Claudine Meilink, Director of Employer & Alumni Engagement, at cmeilink@purdue.edu.

Host a coffee hour

If you are looking for a relaxed yet professional student engagement opportunity, consider hosting a coffee hour. These highly attended events can be held in Krannert's Rawls Hall, making it convenient for students to stop by to talk. 

Contact KPDC Senior Administrative Assistant Jennifer Highland at jlhighla@purdue.edu to reserve your date!
