Hi!  My name is Ericka Stark, and as an Employer Relations Specialist I help on-campus employers recruit, retain, and promote the best student employees for their department. I also help CPaRC manage their budget and business operations.

I’m a proud UWM grad with a long career in Higher Ed.  I love working with staff & students and building meaningful relationships that make the University a great place to work, study, and play!  If you are looking for ways to improve your student hiring process; email, call, or stop in to see me, my door is always open and I’m ready to help!

Eileen ThomasonMarketing & Web Design InternCareer Planning and Resource Center thomaso3@uwm.eduMellencamp 128

I have been working for the Career Planning & Resource Center for about a year on marketing their numerous career/job/majors fairs and other events we hold for students like the JCPenney Suit-Up Event. Since working at CPaRC I have been able to develop my professional skills and learn more about the job search process. I really encourage students to meet with one of our career counselors for resume help, and try to attend at least one career fair a semester. Employers are excited to meet students and it is a great way to build up your network and knowledge of your industry!
