On Friday, March 15, Penn State Smeal College of Business Alumni Career Services will host a free webinar on sustainability and how knowledge in this area can make applicants more attractive to prospective employers. The webinar, “Sustainability: Knowledge that can Help your Career and our Planet,” will run from noon to 1 p.m. EST and is open to all Smeal alumni.

Alumni currently searching for a job as well as those looking to advance their careers will benefit from the webinar’s tips on how to differentiate themselves by demonstrating competence in sustainability concepts.

“Very few companies are looking for sustainability specialists,” said Gerry Susman, director of the Sustainability Council and Emeritus Klein Professor of Management at Smeal. “They’re looking for people with functional expertise who understand sustainability and how to apply it to their own areas.”

To be moderated by Susman, the webinar will feature guest panelists Dawn Rittenhouse, director of sustainable development at DuPont, and Daniel Bena, senior director of global sustainable development at PepsiCo. The panelists will talk about how to learn about sustainability, how to demonstrate that knowledge to current and potential employers, and how to tell if a company is serious about sustainability.

To register for the webinar, visit http://php.smeal.psu.edu/alumni/sustainability/index.php before March 14 at noon EST.
