Still Time to Register
for UW-Eau Claire's Career Conference

RELEASED: Sept. 27, 2006

EAU CLAIRE — There is still room for about 15 employers or organizations to register for the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's annual Career Conference, to be held this year from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct.12, in Zorn Arena.

The Career Conference, sponsored by Beta Upsilon Sigma and the Student Accounting Society, offers students and alumni the opportunity to discuss career plans, exchange resumes and make preliminary contacts with participating organizations. These contacts allow employers to follow up with more formal interviews either on or off campus.

Underclassmen may also profit from the Career Fair by talking to representatives about what potential employers have to offer, which may help clarify their career goals. Organizations can provide information about possible internships.

Sponsors of the Career Conference feel that this is an opportunity for organizations to enhance their visibility on campus since more than 1,200 students attend the conference each year.

Over 100 employers including companies, graduate schools and state and federal agencies attend this event each year. Participants are invited to attend a pre-conference reception Wednesday evening at the Holiday Inn. Included in the registration is a complimentary continental breakfast and lunch for two company representatives, valet parking, including unloading and loading before and after the event, and a company booth.

There is a $175 registration fee for organizations. Registrants may apply with an online application. Registration checks can be made payable to Beta Upsilon Sigma and sent, along with a copy of the registration form, to Debbie Peterson, UW-Eau Claire Career Services, P. O. Box 4004, Eau Claire, WI, 54702-4004.

For more information about the Career Conference, contact Kyle Cook at 952-412-4704 or cook@uwec.edu.
