Career Conference logoEAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is inviting employers and organizations to register for the 50th annual Career Conference to be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, 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.
