Hi, parents and families. I’m UW-Stout’s Career Services Director Bryan Barts. I want to share with you what our office is doing to assist your student this spring semester, and I ask that you encourage them to take full advantage of these career and professional resources.
Our career counselors are committed to your student’s success in reaching their career goals. To schedule an appointment, students may call 715-232-1601.
Spring Career Conference; March 2-4, 2021
At the Spring Career Conference, we are anticipating 150 or more companies looking to hire students for co-op and internship positions or full-time opportunities.
For our virtual event, we have partnered with Career Fair Plus to provide students a seamless experience and the opportunity to schedule individualized one-on-one meetings with recruiters. During our virtual fall conference, there were more than 2,600 individualized, 10-minute meetings between students and employers.
We also held a Career Conference Prep Week from Feb. 15-25. Prep week offered programs aimed at educating and empowering students to be successful at the Career Conference.
- Career Conference Prep and Job Search Essentials courses.
- Employer in Residence, Career Treks and employer-sponsored events.
- 2020-21 Employment Guide, featuring Career Services programs, career readiness and networking tips, job document samples and more.
We know that UW-Stout students are still being recruited across many industries, as our Cooperative Education and Internship Program recorded over 700 enrollments last year. And we are continuing to see employers reach out to us looking for ways to engage and hire UW-Stout students.
Although we are hopeful for a return to more in-person opportunities in the fall, the benefits of connecting students and employers virtually have proven to be effective.
