Bob Murphy, vice president for enrollment and dean of admissions, will present a talk about careers at PepsiCo, where he worked for 26 years, serving in a variety of roles including Operating Officer of PepsiCo International in Istanbul, before joining the Colleges in 2004. The talk will be held on Monday, Oct. 3, at 7:30 p.m. in Stern 103.

PepsiCo representatives will be on campus on Oct. 13 and 14 to recruit seniors for full-time operations and sales programs in New York State. In anticipation of their arrival, Murphy will give the pre-recruiting talk on Oct. 3, where he will describe the available positions, answer questions, and give application advice.
