Career Fair and Events

Campus career fairs feature employers who have a recruiting relationship with WCU and are motivated to hire students/alumni for their jobs and internships. Career fairs should definitely be a part of your search strategy. Regional and consortium fairs are also great ways to connect with recruiters.

Prior to attending any event, be prepared so that you can have a successful experience. Dress professionally and bring enough copies of your resume to distribute to all employers of interest. For campus career fairs, employer participants can be accessed in advance via Ram Career Network's "Events" section. Review these Tips for Success prior to attending the next fair.

Upcoming Events

The career center sponsors fairs on campus featuring employers hiring for full-time, internship, and part-time opportunities.
