Associate Director of Employer Relations
Career Planning & Resource Center

Hello!  My name is Kamara Jackson and I serve as the Employer Relations Manager for the Career Planning and Resource Center.  In my current role, I work to build relationships with employers and organizations that have diverse employment needs for UWM students and alumni.  I manage and support the recruiting efforts of those employers utilizing our employment job board, Handshake.  In addition, I develop and create employer related programming that results in the advancement of UWM students.  These initiatives include discipline and major focused career fairs, the PantherJobs Job Shadowing Program, the Panther Career Closet, and the updated Employer Partnership Program.

My passion for Higher Education, Career Development, and Employer Relations allows me to give back and support other offices on campus and also in the Milwaukee community.  I’m proud that my unique experiences contribute to the success of our students and UWM Community!
