Mid-State Technical College (MSTC) has partnered with University of Wisconsin campuses in Marshfield, Stevens Point, and Wausau to host the Central Wisconsin Collegiate Job Fair from noon to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, February 19.
The collegiate job fair, free to students and graduates, offers opportunities to connect with Wisconsin employers about career positions and internships. The event will be held in the Dreyfus University Center Laird Room at University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (1015 Reserve Street).
MSTC Student Life & Career Services Coordinator Stephany Hartman advises that attendees bring copies of an updated and proofed resume and to "dress for success." They should also research the employers who will be attending to determine those who best match their interests and professional goals. Hartman also recommends that participants develop and practice a 20-second self-marketing presentation.
"When you introduce yourself, maintain good eye contact and offer a firm handshake," said Hartman. "Be courteous at all times and let your positive attitude show. Be sure to get a business card or contact information, and be ready to both ask and answer questions."
Hartman also recommends that attendees follow up their job recruiter conversations with a personal thank you note.
"A thank you note can truly set a jobseeker apart from other candidates," said Hartman.
