Prepare for the Career Fair through prep session and help tables

October 11, 2012

The 21st annual Career Fair takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 17, in the Riverview Ballroom at the University Center.

The Career Fair gives students the opportunity to meet and network with potential employers and graduate school recruiters. These organizations might have a future job or internship for students.

UW-River Falls Career Services increased their efforts in order to have students be more prepared for the Career Fair. There will be a prep session on from 2-4 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 15, in the Falcon’s Nest at the UC. This session will have hands-on stations for students to learn about networking, practice conversing with recruiters, create appropriate application materials such as resumes and cover letters and how to dress for success.

Students will also have the opportunity to visit one of the help tables that will be available from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 15, and Tuesday, Oct. 16, in the UC entryway for resume critiques and Career Fair information.
