The Center for Academic Advising & Career Engagement encourages students to use their “gifts and talents in the service of others, to make an uncommon impact in a common world.” We are therefore grateful for the many ways in which community partners, including alumni, employers, and community organizations demonstrate that vocational service through their continued partnerships with our University.  In fact, our success in facilitating students’ connections with experiential learning opportunities–including internships, field placements, shadow experiences, and networking events-is predicated on these critical partnerships.  If you are an alum, a local employer, or work for a community organization and want some of the best talent SE Wisconsin has to offer, consider these opportunities for engaging with our department:

Host a Recruiting Table

Due to Covid-19 we have moved recruiting tables into virtual employer spotlight programming. Please see details in our "Employer Spotlight" tab above.

Host a Backpack to Briefcase session

For students entering the workforce, the stakes have never been higher. In order to shape uncommon graduates, we need to leverage the insights and best practices of today’s industry leaders. These lunch-hour TedX style sessions are designed to highlight your expertise and help our students make the transition from the classroom to the workforce. Topics can range from transferrable skills to networking or interviewing, to practical functions like organizing a meeting agenda. For employers who cater lunch, we’ll cater the student base to your needs. Whether you have a specific focus or take a more egalitarian approach, we would be happy to work with you to make this even mutually beneficial.

If you have questions, please contact the Center for Academic Advising and Career Engagement at 262-243-4499

Host a site visit

Show them where the magic happens! For many employers, words simply won’t do justice to the meaningful impact you are making in the community and your respective industry. Although students love hearing about the great things they can do upon completing their degree, the experience of visiting a company, interacting with a panel of professionals, and seeing your work in-action can have a profound effect on their vocational goals. A picture may be worth 1000 words, but a site visit is worth 1000 pictures.
