Annual Career Conference
Set for Oct. 9 at UW-Eau Claire

 MAILED:  Oct. 2, 2003

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire’s 46th annual Career Conference will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 9, in Zorn Arena.

The conference is a great opportunity for students and faculty members to meet with more than 85 prospective employers. Students and faculty members also will have a chance to meet these employers in a more casual setting at a Pre-Conference Reception. The reception will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 8, at the Plaza Hotel and is sponsored by the Student Accounting Society.

At the conference students can expect to meet with prospective employers and learn about career opportunities within their majors. Students can even secure interview slots for full-time jobs or internships said senior Sonia Frissora, a member of the Beta Upsilon Sigma’s conference organizing committee.

“The Career Conference is a great opportunity for students to make contacts for the future, right here on campus,” Frissora said.

The majority of companies will come from Minnesota and Wisconsin, but there are others from the surrounding region. Employers will not only be looking for potential employees, but also will be letting students know what types of skills, abilities and experience they look for and value in their employees.

Beta Upsilon Sigma and Career Services are sponsoring the Career Conference. For more information, e-mail careerconference@uwec.edu.
