Every Thursday, starting September 23rd, we will have an employer on campus during the open noon hour to connect with students regarding their organization and any open job and internship opportunities. Please see the list below to view which employers will be attending and when.

Employer Involvement

Weekly Employer Spotlight: Employers are invited to come to campus to table during our open noon hour on Thursdays to connect with students and share information about their organization and opportunities. Reach out to lawver@uwm.edu if you are interested.
