Other events this fall include:

Registration closes Thursday, Oct. 12.
  • Job Shadow Program: Job shadowing allows students to get an insider’s view and experience a day in the life of a professional working in a career field of interest. 
  • Internship Draft Day: Thursday, Nov. 2, at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. See Handshake for more information.
  • Government and Nonprofit Career Fair: Friday, Nov. 3. Transportation will be provided. Handshake will have more information soon.

Encourage your student to log in and create or update their profile in Handshake to help increase their engagement with employers in the system. They can explore more in CONNECT and reach out to us at careerservices@uwstout.edu about our Cooperative Education and Internship Program.

We also hold a Spring Career Conference Week, as well as Art & Design Week in the spring semester. This national award-winning program offers professional portfolio reviews for students in the School of Art and Design.
