Two Lakeland College mini-buses filled with well-dressed students left campus earlier this week, bound for Milwaukee and the 24th annual Workforce Career and Internship Fair.
Transportation to the event for the more than 40 Lakeland students who attended was supplied by the college’s Success and Engagement Coaches team. Access to more than 150 employers and graduate schools was free for Lakeland College students. Check out the impressive list of participating companies and organizations.
“I was able to practice talking to employers in a relaxed setting, get resume feedback and learn about job opportunities I never previously thought about looking into,” said Lakeland sophomore Jocelyn Yeager, who is majoring in accounting with an emphasis in forensics.
The annual career fair, which Lakeland has participated in since 1991, provides a tremendous opportunity for students and graduates to interact with recruiters, employers and graduate schools. It is organized by the Wisconsin Private College Career Consortium (WIPCCC).
“This event helps students build an understanding of the global marketplace and allows them to directly interact and network with organizations that are seeking Wisconsin’s talented graduates,” said Lambrecht, Lakeland’s director of career services and one of the college’s five success and engagement coaches.
“It is also another great example of how the Lakeland College Student Success and Engagement team strives to help students prepare for success – both during their time at Lakeland and after graduation.”
