Students and alumni can plan early for the spring Career Fair on the Fox and “Get Hired!” Every year, Career Services and Fox Valley Technical College host two of the largest career fairs in the area, which attract over 120 businesses. This event will take place Feb. 12 at the UW Oshkosh Kolf Sports Center from 2 to 6 p.m.
Alumni do not need to pre-register for the career fair.
Career Services recommends that students prepare thoroughly for the career fair if they choose to attend. The more prepared attendees are, the more likely they’ll come out of the event with a new job or internship.
“The biggest reason to prepare is improve your ability to present yourself to companies,” said Matt Mott, a career services adviser. “Students should prepare a 30-second pitch. You want to be able to explain what you have to offer to a company representative in a short amount of time.”
Anyone interested is welcome to stop by the Career Services office — located in Dempsey 230 — and meet with an adviser to have their resume critiqued. Students can also visit Titan Jobs for additional resources including sample resumes, interview questions, networking advice, virtual mock interviews and more. Career Fair on the Fox participants will have the opportunity to network, explore educational opportunities and distribute resumes and business cards to organizations from the Fox Valley region.
This career fair is free to all who participate, and there is no need for pre-registration. Those who attend the Career Fair on the Fox will also have the chance to win an amazing door prize. Participants are encouraged to dress professionally and appropriately, and to bring several copies of their resume. There may be opportunities for on-the-spot interviews to secure job positions immediately.
