Congratulations to Career Services personnel and others on successful virtual job fair

Career Services partnered with the Green Bay Area Public School (GBAPS) District to offer a virtual job fair for UW-Green Bay students and alumni. Eleven individual video chat rooms were made available for participation on Tuesday, May 19, 2020.  Candidates participated in eight of the rooms assigned by certification area. There were 29 unique students and alumni who participated in a total of 36 scheduled chat sessions with over 20 representatives from GBAPS during a four-hour window of the virtual event. The virtual job fair was led by Career Services staff members Linda Peacock-Landrum and Karla Miller. They received technical support from Nichole LaGrow, Distance Education coordinator and outreach support to alumni from Kari Moody, director of Alumni Relations. This is what one participant had to say:

“With the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is influencing the traditional process of career fairs and interviews for Spring 2020 graduates (and possibly for future graduates to come). As a school and clinical mental health Social Work graduate, I found the virtual career fair with the Green Bay Area Public School District to be so influential and needed! To be able to put a face to my submitted applications and meet the future hiring team says a lot! It was a quick and easy process.”
