Winter Career Fair 2018
February 8, 2018 11 am to 3 pm Wade King Rec Center MAC Gym
Why you should come!
Whether it is your first quarter at Western or your last, a career fair is an invaluable opportunity to work on networking skills, learn about employers and gather information about internships and jobs. Why go?
- To make a good (or GREAT!) first impression in person
- To get the name and information of a real human at an organization you may want to intern at or work for
- To learn more about employers than you can online
- To learn how real world jobs and internships are not organized by major and explore what students with your degree can do in various organizations
- To be considered for internships or jobs that they may currently have posted (do your research!)
- To practice your networking skills in person with people who interview and make hiring decisions
If there is even one organization or industry you are interested in, you have a reason to go!
The Career Services Center is excited to be including an STEM Section in this year’s Winter Career Fair on February 8th (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math). What does this mean for you?
- There will be a section featuring STEM industry employers or employers with STEM internships or jobs, as well as representation for some STEM student clubs. We are encouraging organizations to send employees from these areas, not only recruiters.
- All students of all majors are encouraged to attend as we will have a large and diverse group of employers participating. Of roughly 80 companies only about a third or fewer will be in this special section and many may have non-STEM opportunities as well!
Contact the Career Services Center at 360-650-3240 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions!
