You’re Invited: Purdue University Recruitment and Networking Event

Byline: Kyla Olson, Workforce Program and Event Manager

Tuesday, April 18th, NFPA will be hosting a two-part virtual event with Purdue University. We will begin with the Indiana Workforce Engagement Group meeting where you can expect an open discussion between NFPA staff, Purdue University faculty, and industry representatives from NFPA member companies. This is meant to provide a space for collaboration as well as an opportunity to ask questions regarding Purdue University programs, NFPA programs, and to share how NFPA can better support your workforce needs.

Following this conversation, we will welcome Purdue University Engineering students to join the event to begin a virtual career fair. Each NFPA member company can meet with students in your own “breakout” room to speak directly with students about open positions at your company. Purdue University students from the following programs will be invited to this event: Fluid Power Club members, Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge team, mechanical engineering technology students, electrical engineering students, as well as agricultural and biological engineering students.

The event will take place on zoom from 12:45pm – 2:30pm ET Tuesday, April 18th. Please register for this event using the link found here. Following registration, you will receive further details including the zoom link to join. Please contact Kyla Olson at with any questions.

We look forward to seeing you there!
