September 30, 2014

UW student Katherine Donahue obtains information from Union Wireless representative Justin Kaiser at a previous UW job fair. Two fairs are planned this fall: The Business, Government, Non-Profit and Agriculture fair will be Monday, Oct. 6, and the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Fair will be Tuesday, Oct. 7. Both fairs will be from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Ballroom.

University of Wyoming student will be able to meet with prospective employers during job fairs scheduled Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 6-7.

Increased employer interest has led the Center for Advising and Career Services (CACS) to plan two fall Job and Internship Fairs instead of one. The fairs, which will be divided by career fields, allow the employers to interact with students from all colleges and majors.

The Business, Government, Non-Profit and Agriculture fair will be Monday, Oct. 6, and the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Fair will be Tuesday, Oct. 7. Both fairs will be from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Ballroom.

“The spring 2014 fair had well over 100 employers, and we reached our capacity for space,” says CACS Director Jo Chytka. “We want to make sure that every employer has access to our students, and the split additionally makes the fairs easier to navigate for job seekers.”

Employers will be seeking students and recent alumni for full-time, part-time and internship positions. UW faculty and staff members are encouraged to attend and interact with employers.

To prepare for the fairs, the CACS recommends that students:

-- Have their resumes checked by its staff;

-- Prepare their appropriate business formal attire;

-- Research the companies in attendance; and

-- Look over job postings on the CACS website.

Complete information on the fairs, other career events and job listings can be found at www.uwyo.edu/cacs/career-services/uwcareer.html

The growing employer demand reflects a promising career outlook for UW graduates, Chytka says. Both job/grad school placement rates and average starting salaries have been steadily increasing in recent years, based on a CACS survey of UW recent graduates. For last year’s graduating classes, 66 percent had job offers in their fields or graduate school plans within three months of graduation. The average reported starting salary for UW graduates was $45,819.

The fair is sponsored by CACS and WYO Gold, the student alumni association. Contact CACS for more information at (307) 766 2398, or email uwcacs@uwyo.edu.
