Career Events are great ways to network with employers.
UWF Fall and Spring Career Fairs: A campus-wide, comprehensive career fair is held each Fall and Spring semester. Students and alumni who are looking for internships, co-ops, or full-time employment should be at this event!
The Volunteer Fair brings together over 30 local not-for-profit organizations & Volunteer UWF! Community Partners to raise awareness of community needs. Students can network and seek out service locations while learning about upcoming volunteerism and service learning projects.
Construction Career Night: An event co-sponsored with the Construction Technology Program, featuring various companies within the construction industry.
UWF Part-Time Job Fair: A campus-wide part-time job Fair is held every Fall semester during UWF’s Welcome Week.
Etiquette Dinners-Career Services in conjunction with the Offices of Student Transitions, Housing and Residence Life, and Student Activities, hosts two etiquette dinners per academic year. The event in the Fall specifically targets student leaders while the event in the Spring is open to the campus community. Employers are also invited to attend to network with students. Topics covered during this event: proper dining manners; “what not to wear”; and the proper utensils and glassware to use.
Network Night/Meet the Pros: An informal networking event held the night prior to the Career Fair. Come mingle with employers and faculty/staff members as well as fellow students. This program has been a very successful strategy for students wanting to land a great career!
