Resume Roadshow – quick resume appraisals (reviews) in advance of the Spring Career Fair

Monday, Feb. 16, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Memorial Union Corner Store area

Students with resumes that need more than a quick appraisal should schedule an appointment at Career Services. To start a resume from scratch, try the Resume Builder in BodJobs or Resumes for America! Yes, faculty and staff can create free BodJobs and RfA accounts as well.

Spring Career Fair – usually around 100 organizations that want to see students of all levels and majors with appropriate skills for part-time, internship, and full-time employment opportunities and graduate study. Appropriate dress is expected (NOT sneakers, jeans, shorts, t-shirts, pajamas). Only about 300 WU students attended in the fall – let’s get that number up! Employers want to see your students (and YOU), and they want to see your students looking and acting like professionals!

Wednesday, Feb. 18, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Lee Arena, Petro

Spring Education Interview Day – employment screening interviews for education majors only

Wednesday, March 11, Memorial Union Washburn Room

Career Services assists students with career/major decision making and job search and employment preparation, including individual counseling, career assessments, resume/cover letter preparation, grad school applications, job search strategies, interviewing, including mock interviews, and more.

Students can schedule an appointment by calling 785-670-1450 or coming by Morgan 137 (middle wing). Sorry, our current location during the Morgan Hall renovation project limits the availability of walk-in assistance. Many resources are available on the Career Services website at
