Brenda Fabian, assistant director of employer relations and recruiting, is the newest Penn State Smeal MBA Program staff member. Filling a new position for the college, she will be responsible for candidate recruiting as well as employer relationships.

“On the employer relations side, I’ll be maintaining relationships with some of our top employers as well as investigating opportunities to deepen relationships with some new employers,” Fabian explained. “On the recruiting side, I’ll be reaching out to prospective students who would fit in well with our areas of strength.”

“Connecting our students with their post-MBA careers is one of our primary missions as a business school, and we believe that Brenda will provide a direct line of sight for aligning great students with great employers.”

The Penn State Smeal MBA Program recognizes the importance of connecting students with top companies. According to the program’s managing director, Carrie Marcinkevage, Fabian’s position will help expand the program’s corporate network and provide student recruitment support.

“Connecting our students with their post-MBA careers is one of our primary missions as a business school, and we believe that Brenda will provide a direct line of sight for aligning great students with great employers,” said Marcinkevage.

Prior to joining Smeal, Fabian served as director of the Career Development Center at Susquehanna University, which provided her with a keen understanding of both student and recruiter needs. She also brings recruiting experience from her time as an admissions representative for Saint Francis University.

Fabian holds a master’s degree in student personnel from Slippery Rock University and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Saint Francis University.
