Career Conference

Find an internship or a job at this year's Career Conference

The 55th Annual University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Career Conference is just around the corner. This year’s conference will be held Thursday, September 27, 2012 from 10 am-3 pm in the ballroom of the new Davies Center. The UW-Eau Claire Career Conference is co-sponsored by Beta Upsilon Sigma, a student business fraternity, and 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. Approximately 100 organizations, including accounting firms, businesses, graduate schools, and state and federal agencies, participate in the conference each year.
