Career Fairs 
Career Services hosts two Career Fairs per year, one in the fall and one in the spring. Tradititionally, these Career Fairs have been in-person in our University Center. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the fall 2020 and spring 2021 career fairs were held virtually via Handshake. For the most up-to-date information regarding UW-River Falls Career Fairs, view this webpage. 

Virtual Resume Cafe 
The Virtual Resume Cafe is housed in a Microsoft Team. During this event, students register for a 20-minute resume review with an employer of thier choosing. On the day of the event, the student will log in to the Virtual Resume Cafe (Microsoft Team), announce that they are ready for their resume review (at what time and with who), and you (the employer)  will begin a private video or text chat with the student that is there for your appointment. The student will share thier screen to show you thier resume so you are able to provide valuable feedback. We host this event once or twice throughout a semester. If you're interested in learning more or participating, please email Amber Ristow at

Tune in Tuesday
Tune in Tuesday is Career Services' video podcast on all things career. Each semester we brainstorm relevant topics to dicuss. Past Tune in Tuesday episodes have included employer panels on career fair preparation, applicant tracking systems, recruiting trends, and studnet panels on exploring majors and careers, getting career ready, and more! View previous episodes here. Have a topic you think would interest our students? Want to participate? Email McKenna Pfeiffer at for more information. 

Virtual Career Treks
Traditionally, a Career Trek is a site visit that companies (you!) provide. It’s a unique chance for students to learn more about a company of interest, any job or internship opportunities they have available, and what they might look for in candidates that apply. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the Career Services Offices across the UW-System teamed up to provide students these unique opportunities in a virtual environment. Career Treks are hosted every Wednesday at 2 PM throughout the school year. Interested in hosting a Virtual Career Trek at your company? Email Melissa Wilson, to learn more.
