Possibility PeteEAU CLAIRE — Career Services at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will offer a variety of activities Oct. 26-30 during "Explore Your Possibilities" week.

Hosted by Possibility Pete, the mascot of Career Services, many of the events will focus on community involvement, the green movement and growing a resume while in college.

A kick-off party will run from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Oct. 26 in the Career Services office in Schofield 230. Homemade treats and information on how students can explore their possibilities will be offered. Prizes include a $50 Target gift card, tickets to Action City, tickets to Chaos Water Park and several green-friendly items, such as reusable bags and water bottles.

Throughout the week employers, faculty, staff and invited alumni will talk about a variety of majors and careers, ways to get work experience and the job search. Most sessions will help students prepare for success in many areas of their lives, not just in choosing a career path.

Students should register online prior to the event. Faculty and staff also are welcome to attend the sessions.

The week will end with a Prize Party from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Oct. 30 in Career Services. Homemade treats and prizes will be offered.
