Career Fair & Interview Day - Employers

Career Fair Homepage

Connect with Paper Science and Engineering Students who are looking for real world experience at the UWSP Paper Science and Engineering Career Fair. This evening session provides an opportunity for your company to meet students who are looking for Co-op, internship experiences or permanent employment in the paper and allied industries.

The Career Fair is similar to a trade fair. When you register, you will have a designated table and area where you can set up a booth to distribute brochures and other promotional items. In this informal setting, you will be able to meet all of our students and to arrange to interview those that meet your hiring requirements.

The Interview Day on Thursday, October 2, 2014 from 8:00am - 5:00pm provides your company with the opportunity to interview students immediately after meeting them at the Career Fair.  Each company can request private interview rooms to conduct interviews.

Please note that participation in the Career Fair does not preclude you from contacting the Paper Science and Engineering Department and arranging on-campus visits and interviews later in the school year. The Career Fair's purpose is to provide equal interviewing opportunities to as many companies as possible.

If you have are any questions, please contact Jodi Hermsen at the Paper Science and Engineering office at 715-346-4817 or engineering@uwsp.edu .
