EMPLOYERS SOUGHT FOR CAREER FAIR


OCT. 7, 2005--The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Career Services invites employers from the St. Croix Valley to participate in the annual All-Campus Career Fair on Wednesday, Oct. 19.

The career fair is from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Karges Gymnasium. Participating organizations will have the opportunity to inform and attract future potential employees to meet their specific needs.

Organizations attending the career fair include: Partners Advantage, Best Buy, Ag Star Financial, Fort Dodge Animal Health, ACR Homes, the Brickman Group, USDA Livestock Market News Branch, Padilla Speer Beardsley, BioDiagnostics and other organizations from around the country. In addition, graduate schools, including UW-RF's, will highlight continuing education opportunities. A complete list of employers and graduate schools attending the 2005 Career Fair is at http://www.uwrf.edu/career/events/career_fair/welcome.htm.

This year more than 45 new organizations are participating in the career fair. "This is a very important fact because it gives more students a better opportunity to find internships, jobs and make employer contacts for the future," says Lee Ewings, career fair coordinator. "It is our goal to invite organizations from all areas to cover the programs offered at UW-RF. Hiring new employees is an important investment for all organizations."

Space is limited to 100 registrants, but registration is still open. The registration fee is $125, which includes a booth with table, parking, refreshments, electricity for displays if requested, and one lunch for the organization representative.
