53rd Annual Career Conference

Connect at Career Conference

The 53rd annual Career Conference takes place on Tuesday, September 28 from 10:00 am–3:00 pm in Zorn Arena. More than 125 organizations, including businesses, graduate schools, and state and federal agencies participate in the conference each year.

Co-sponsored by business fraternity Beta Upsilon Sigma and UW-Eau Claire Career Services, 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 and senior students 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.

Companies including Target, Cargill, and Hormel will have representatives at the event. Students can find a detailed list of employers, and which majors they are looking for, in booklets available in the Schneider Hall and Hibbard Hall lobbies. Information is also available on the Career Services website.

Business majors and minors, as well as all other campus majors, are encouraged to attend Career Conference. No registration is required.
