Source One to Attend Recruiting Events at Penn State Abington and The University of Scranton
Willow Grove, PA (March 31, 2016) – Supply management experts from Source One Management Services will be engaging students at Scranton University and Penn State Abington at upcoming campus recruiting events, continuing the firm’s procurement thought leadership momentum at area universities. This April, cost-reduction consultants, also Penn State and Scranton alumni, from Source One are returning to the universities to teach students about career paths within procurement and supply management consulting, as well as recruit candidates for open procurement analyst positions.
Representing five different graduating classes, Source One’s Scranton alumni will return to the University for an insightful presentation and round table discussion highlighting how the procurement services firm supports client spend management goals. The panel of cost-reduction experts will also explain the career path options within supply chain and procurement, as well as the benefits of working at a strategic sourcing consultancy. Following the panel discussion, interested students are welcome to participate in preliminary interviews the procurement consultants will be hosting.
“Source One has seen a major change in the way organizations achieve their spend optimization goals, relying on both full-time and contract procurement resources and creating a growing demand for supply management professionals. With this surging demand, now’s the ideal time for students to learn more about the career options within supply chain and procurement so they can begin now preparing themselves for the industry, such as taking the relative classes and gaining job experience through internships.” shared Source One VP of Professional Services and Scranton Alum, Joe Payne. “While recruiting events are always an exciting opportunity to hear fresh perspectives and take a step back and look at the industry with a new set of eyes, speaking at Scranton is a personal honor. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to reflect on my career after graduating, and sharing some of my lessons learned for those pursuing a career in consulting”
On Tuesday April 5th, Source One’s supply management consultants will also be recruiting at Penn State Abington’s Spring Career Expo. As graduation seasons grows near, the expo aims to connect employers with soon-to-be graduates and internship-seekers. The Penn State satellite campus hosts a Career Expo each semesters, hosting companies in a wide range of industries to meet recent alumni and current students looking for full-time employment and internships.
These recruiting events are Source One’s first appearances at both colleges, marking the companies growing partnerships with area academic institutions.
