UW-Eau Claire to host 54th Career Conference
The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will host the 54th annual Career Conference, Thursday, September 29 from 10 am-3 pm in the UW-Eau Claire Zorn Arena. Approximately 100 organizations, including businesses, graduate schools, and state and federal agencies, will participate in the conference this year. A list of employers registered to attend the event can be found at www.uwec.edu/career/careerconference/registrants.htm
The UW-Eau Claire Career Conference is free and open to all UW-Eau Claire students and alumni. No advanced registration is required.
Career Conference is great place for freshmen and sophomore business students to practice networking skills, learn about career options, and discover which companies recruit on campus. Junior, senior, and MBA students, and alumni can use the fair to make preliminary contacts with employers for internships or permanent employment after graduation. These contacts can be followed up with more formal interviews either on or off campus.
Career Conference is co-sponsored by Beta Upsilon Sigma, a UW-Eau Claire student business fraternity, and UW-Eau Claire Career Services. For more information, visit the Career Conference website at www.uwec.edu/career/careerconference/.
