Job & Internship Fairs

Job Shadow Program

We are always looking for employers who are willing to host a student for the day to show them what your job is all about. Job shadowing is one of the best ways for students to explore careers.

Employer Spotlight

UWM at Waukesha hosts several Employer Spotlights each school year. Up to six organizations are invited on campus, and given a table near the cafeteria from 11:45pm - 1:00pm. This event is for organizations looking to connect with students about internships, jobs or volunteer opportunities. Gold Sponsors of our Job and Internship Fairs are invited to participate in these spotlights.

Host a Day in the Field Event

As students explore careers, this is a great way to host a small group of students interested in your industry at your organization. Typical day in the field events include a tour, an information session and time for questions/answers/networking.
