Harrisburg University students and alumni; come and attend one of the more unique career events you’ll ever see. A career and networking fair that’s also a tailgate!

Tailgate & Relate is a professional career and networking event that will be hosted by the Central Pennsylvania Employment Consortium (CPEC) next week on Wednesday, November 2nd from 11:00 AM-2:00 PM at Adams Ricci Park in Enola (100 East Pennsboro Dr. Enola Pa, 17025). Harrisburg University is a proud member of the consortium.

Attendees are encouraged to dress business casually, play some lawn games, and get some great FREE food from regional food trucks while having the opportunity to meet with employers and learn about job and internship opportunities. This will be a more relaxed atmosphere giving attendees the opportunity to more confidently network with employers. The Career Services & Experiential Learning office will be providing a free bus shuttle departing from the HU Lobby beginning at 10:30 AM and leaving every hour. The final bus shuttle departing the event at Adams Ricci Park will be at 2:30 PM.
