Job Fair Seeks to Prepare Graduates for Local Workforce
SUPERIOR, Wis. — For college students on the brink of getting a degree, preparing to enter the job market can be a scary time.
But job fairs, like the one at the Yellow Jacket Student Union at UW-Superior earlier today, can help get those students ready for that first job interview.
80 potential employers greet job-seekers face to face in what those in attendance hope is a way to network with future bosses or jumpstart their new careers.
Teachers at UW-Superior say their ultimate goal is to see graduates enter the workforce, and potentially gain careers here in the Twin Ports.
“We consider ourselves to be a really important part of the Twin Ports community,” said Cortney Alexander, the Director of Career Services at UWS. “We want to keep our graduates here in the region so that they can settle here, start families here, and contribute.”
Organizers say they were expecting around 300 students to attend this year’s job fair.
