This event has been canceled due to Covid restrictions for Spring 2021. 

Industry constituents are encouraged to sign up for the Career Services virtual Spring Career Day 2021, which will be held via Handshake on Tuesday, March 16, 2021. 

Automotive Orientation Day (AOD) is hosted each Spring by the Automotive Technology Department. Automotive business professionals from all over the United States come to interact with automotive majors during formal sessions in the morning, and informal sessions in the afternoon. The morning session consists of industry representatives participating in panel discussions that allow students to ask questions and receive answers. The afternoon session consists of industry booths creating a mini career fair. 

This is a great opportunity to visit with PSU automotive faculty, PSU automotive alumni, and other automotive Industry recruiters before Automotive Orientation Day. Please indicate on your registration if you will be attending the Tuesday evening reception and dinner while registering for AOD.  The dinner will be held at 7pm at the Kansas Technology Center.
