Recruiting Events

Career Services at UW-Green Bay sponsors several recruiting events throughout the year. These programs allow you as an employer to connect directly with students to share information about your organization, the types of positions you recruit and identify potential candidates for full-time and internship positions.

Job & Internship Fairs

The job and internship fair is an opportunity for employers to meet with students and alumni for the purpose of promoting professional full-time jobs and career-related internships with their organizations. Two events are held each year—one in Fall (late September/early October) and one in Spring (late February/early March). The fair is open and publicized to all students at the University on all four campuses—whether they are seeking full-time or internship opportunities, or wanting to obtain information about employers or the types of positions available at various organizations.

Fair Tips For Employers

Your time is valuable, and we want to help you make the most of your job and internship fair experience. Below is a compiled list of tips and suggestions:

Prior to the Job & Internship Fair

  • Plan what you will need for the event. Are your handouts current? Do you have all of the needed pieces for your display? Is everything in working order? Do you have extension cords for your electrical needs? Does your display fit in the space restrictions? (Displays must not exceed a width of 6' or be higher than 6' in height.)
  • Have you looked up directions to campus or to the parking areas? Make certain you have the correct time(s) and location(s) as these can change from year-to-year.
  • Plan time for unload, transport and setup. With limited parking near the event site, plan ahead so you have enough time to unload and transport your materials, park your vehicle in the appropriate lot(s), and set up your display/materials prior to the beginning of the event. You don’t want to miss visiting with students who are first to arrive at the fair!
  • Consider having an intern or a newly hired alumnus attend the event with you. A familiar face might help attract students to your booth.
  • Have you listed your job or internship opportunities in Handshake? This is one of the best ways to get the word out about what you offer have to students and recent alumni.

During the Job & Internship Fair

  • Keep space limitations in mind. Don’t allow your display to infringe on your booth neighbors. Observe limits on the number of representatives. Booth spaces are within an approximate 7-8 foot space; if you have more than 2 representatives it will not only “crowd” your space, but could also intimidate students who might visit your booth.
  • Alternate breaks with another representative so that you do not leave your booth unattended. You might miss connecting with a great candidate. Leaving your booth unattended for an extended period of time may also unintentionally reflect poorly upon your organization.
  • Stay the entire time of the event. Leaving early can also leave a poor impression of your organization.
  • Be aware that the types of students attending the fair will range from first-year students through seniors and alumni. Some individuals might be exploring career options, while others are networking to learn more about your internships and full-time job opportunities. Students who are in “exploration” mode today, might be key candidates for one of your positions in the future!
  • Does your booth and body language convey a welcoming and open conversational space? Sitting behind your table or working on your laptop can deter students from visiting with you.
  • Did any students in particular catch your attention at the fair? If so, follow-up with them to maintain a line of communication. Not only are students competing for job opportunities, but you may be competing for quality candidates!
