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.

Hello, my name is Kyla Nicole and here at UWM, I am studying Journalism with a focus on Advertising/Public Relations. Being the Employer Relations & Marketing intern for CPaRC is teaching me so many skills that I will take with me on my career journey.

I am here to ensure that all UWM students that come into our office are provided with the best resources. Being able to connect with fellow UWM students and building strong relationships with employers is what we do in our office and I'm grateful to be a part of such a wonderful team of people that work on brightening the futures of students, myself included.
