KALAMAZOO, Mich.—Creating connections that can lead to internships and jobs is vital for Western Michigan University students and recent alumni as well as employers seeking talented candidates. WMU is helping students pursue these opportunities in a safe and significant manner with virtual jobs fairs beginning Tuesday, Sept. 8, and scheduled through Monday, Oct. 19.
Employers have posted thousands of jobs to the online career site Handshake. Representatives from Career and Student Employment Services and the Zhang Career Center have also had conversations with hundreds of employers about their hiring needs.
Using this trove of resources, employers from business firms to graduate schools can reach out to WMU and other area college students, as well as job seekers from the general public.
