How are job opportunities found? 

We pursue new employment opportunities for students and graduates, working with them throughout college and beyond.

Students find full-time or part-time employment year-round through job listings received by Career Services. The information may be accessed by students through the job listings on Wisconsin TechConnect.

What do employers look for in a candidate?     

Employers look for students who are highly motivated, able to communicate their ideas clearly and concisely, and can demonstrate skills in leadership and teamwork. Employers also consider a candidate's academic background, appearance, their comfort level with the interview process and their initiative.

Résumé

A résumé cannot get you a job, but it can get you an interview. Have you had much luck gaining interviews with your current résumé? Are you blaming the economy and the number of candidates for one job? Look at your résumé. Most people do not even know they have a poor résumé. Take the approach that will get you noticed: Write from the hiring position. Show the hiring manager what you can do for them.  Do you need help?  Let us help you get started or add the finishing touches to your resume.
