Our career fairs help you meet a cross section of UW–Madison students interested in business careers. Ordinarily, UW-Madison hosts two all-campus career and internship fairs each year. Our Fall Career and Internship Fair kicks off in September, giving you the opportunity to build your campus visibility and connect with more than 3,000 students seeking full-time and internship positions. Our February Spring Career and Internship Fair can meet your spring recruiting and hiring needs as well. We also offer specialized career fairs for risk and insurance and real estate hiring. For Fall 2020, we will be offering several functionally-targeted virtual career fairs instead. A listing of our career fairs this year can be found at: https://careerfair.wisc.edu/.
Additionally, several academic departments within the School of Business host their own career fair. Real Estate, Risk Management & Insurance, Accounting and Supply Chain are examples. Contact your Employer Engagement representative to learn more about these opportunities!
