UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Employers and students participate in last year’s Career Fair at UW-River Falls. Last year’s record-breaking attendance prompted UWRF Career Services to host a two-day Career Fair this year on campus.
August 6, 2019 - The University of Wisconsin-River Falls is seeking employer involvement for the Fall Career Fair to be held Tuesday, Oct. 8, and Wednesday, Oct. 9, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the University Center on campus.
This is the first time UW-River Falls is hosting a two-day Career Fair. It comes as a follow-up to last year’s record-breaking attendance.
The Career Fair gives students the opportunity to meet and network with potential employers. Students can learn about internship and career opportunities with employers who relate to their area of study.
"I gained an invaluable experience speaking with professionals in my field of interest, gaining a better understanding of the jobs which are available to me and learning to be proactive in the outcome of my own future," said a past student attendee.
Participating employers speak highly of UWRF students, stating, "Some of the best I've seen, very professional" and "This is the best Career Fair I've been to."
UWRF Career Services prepares students for the Career Fair by offering a prep session prior to the event. The session features interactive stations for students to learn about and practice networking, conversing with recruiters, creating appropriate application materials, dressing professionally, and researching attending organizations.
UW-River Falls has a reputation of offering quality academic programs in more than 45 degree areas within four colleges: the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Education and Professional Studies, the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences, and the AACSB-accredited College of Business and Economics.
Career Fair registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. UWRF Career Services encourages interested parties to register as early as possible. The registration deadline is Sept. 6.
