On Wednesday, 10 September, we kicked off our 2008-09 employment recruiting season with an evening program given by Procter and Gamble. P&G is one of the largest consumer products companies producing such well known products as Bounty, Charmin, Tide, Crest, and many others. Their manufacturing facility in Mahoopany, PA is the largest facility within P&G where they produce Bounty, Charmin, Bounty Napkins, Pampers, and Luvs. Please see their website at http://www.pg.com for more information about the company.
P&G has been recruiting at SUNY-ESF for the past four years, and are returning this year on 2 October for interviews for summer interns. Jess Herrington ('06, Paper Engineering), Nicole Garrisi ('07, Paper Engineering), John Ford ('08, Paper Engineering), Phani Mogalapu, and John Spencer introduced our students to the company over a dinner of Dinosaur B-B-Q. In their presentation, they provided information about the company's philosophy of hiring from within, using summer internships as extended interviews for permanent job offers, and the variety of opportunities within the company. Casie Goodwin ('09, Paper Engineering), currently a senior our department, spoke about her summer internship at P&G. The evening also included a P&G trivia game that included valuable P&G products as prizes.
P&G represents the first of many companies that will be coming to campus throughout the academic year to hire students for both internships and permanent positions.
