On November 8, 2017, the PHRC hosted the Inaugural PHRC Residential Construction Career Fair at Penn State from 10:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Kunkle Lounge, which created the opportunity for some of the leading residential construction builders, designers, and material manufacturer to mix and mingle with Penn State students. Invited companies included Hankin Group, Ryan Homes (NVR), PABCO, Rigidply Rafters, Timber Rock Homes, and Toll Brothers. Over fifty students attended the career fair.
