New website connects employers to UW student talent
The UW System recently announced the launch of its Career Connect website that connects Wisconsin employers with students for internships, job shadowing, and potential careers. Career Connect was created in-house to help students get experience in their chosen field, while employers have the opportunity to capitalize on the talent at UW institutions. “This is a win-win-win for employers, our students and Wisconsin,” says UW System President Ray Cross. “We can efficiently and effectively connect employers with resources their organizations need while our students get valuable career experience. We know internships often turn into job offers. A meaningful job experience can lead to more graduates staying in Wisconsin to raise their families, becoming an integral part of our workforce and economy.” Read more here.
