This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the WorkForce Fair: Jobs, Internships, and Graduate Schools organized by the career services offices at WAICU members. The WorkForce Fair will be hosted in a virtual format on March 4, 2021.
Throughout the past five years, over 3,500 WAICU students and alumni/ae have attended the WorkForce Fair to learn about career and internship opportunities and graduate school programs. Each year about 150 employers and graduate schools host booths.
The opportunity to connect with employers is even more critical this year as the pandemic and financial impact have limited some companies’ open positions. To assist participants, there will be two pre-events focused on registering and preparing for a virtual fair, as well as a post-event focused on following up with recruiters.
The WorkForce Fair will be hosted on Handshake, a career platform, which is also a WAICU collaborative services program utilized by many WAICU members. Fair participants can register for individual or small group sessions with the employers or graduate schools.
WAICU alumni/ae offices will also encourage alumni/ae who are looking for career or graduate school opportunities to participate. More information is available on our website: www.WAICUcareerconnect.org.
