Nursing and Health Care Professional Career Fair
To be Held at UW-Eau Claire Oct. 21

 MAILED:  Oct. 8, 2004

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will hold a Nursing and Health Care Professional Career Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21, in the Council Fire Room in Davies Center.

The fair should be of interest to students majoring in environmental and public health, health care administration, nursing, social work, communication disorders, kinesiology or music therapy.

"The Nursing and Health Care Professional Career Fair is a wonderful opportunity for students to connect with health care representatives and learn about employment and internship opportunities in their fields," said Dr. Rose Jadack, a professor in adult health nursing at UW-Eau Claire and adviser for the Eau Claire Student Nurses Association. "Each year, the Eau Claire Student Nurses Association helps organize this event so that students can connect with potential employers and learn about the wide array of opportunities available to them."

A pamphlet will be available at the fair containing a brief description of each participating health care facility or agency.

Students are encouraged to come to the fair prepared. Suggestions include wearing appropriate business or professional attire, having career goals in mind, preparing a list of questions to ask employers, and bringing resume copies. Students also should check with their professors in advance if they need to miss a class to attend the fair.

More information on the career fair, participants or a list of suggested questions to ask potential employers can be found online.

The Nursing and Health Care Professional Career Fair is sponsored by the Eau Claire Student Nurses Association.
