Career, Graduate School Fair Offers Great Possibilities for Students

William Woods University students will get a first-hand opportunity to meet with potential employers and graduate school representatives at the annual Career and Graduate School Fair on Tuesday, Jan. 29.

Nearly 30 representatives from companies and colleges will be at the event to meet with students. Included are several state offices, social work offices, insurance companies, banks and other companies.

“The Career and Graduate School Fair is an excellent occasion for current students or recent graduates to network with area employers,” said Michelle Kemp, director of career services and student success.

“Many students have successfully started their career search through contacts made at this event, and it’s a great chance to meet with employers that you might not have otherwise thought about.”

While this event has a lot of post-graduation potential, it is not solely geared towards seniors. In the past, several underclassmen have found internships.

“I’m always so pleased to see our students at career events. They have acquired a superior education at William Woods and coupled it with excellent out-of-class experiences. It’s exciting to watch them translate those experiences into great job opportunities,” said Kemp.

The fair will be held in the Helen Stephens Sports Complex from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, contact Michelle Kemp at the Career Services Center at (573) 592-4313.
