Build Your Brand on Campus

The companies that are most successful in recruiting at UW-Superior are those that work constantly to build a consistent presence on campus. Our students are continually developing their career readiness, and you can be part of that journey as you develop connections and a talent pipeline for your organization’s career and internship needs. Increase your visibility with students and alumni by participating in career events. Whether you represent a small business or large corporation, a nonprofit organization or government agency, we are here to help you connect with UW-Superior talent. 

Attend Career Fairs and Events

Career fairs are one of the most effective ways to gain visibility and connect with students. Job and internship fairs provide employers the opportunity to recruit talented, motivated and excited students for internships and career opportunities. Whether virtual or in person, fairs can help your organization connect with UW-Superior students and alumni to build and expand your talent pipeline. We look forward to partnering with you at our upcoming fairs! 

Career Services in the Link Center also hosts events throughout the year that help to support career exploration, professional development and career readiness. Career events provide another great way to get your organization’s name in front of students and promote career and internship opportunities.

Highlighted companies vary each week. Visit the Career Trek Registration Info page to view the career trek line-up and details.

Tabling

Promote your employment opportunities to students by tabling in high-traffic areas on campus. Meet with students more informally and share details about your organization and your upcoming openings. Reserve an information table in Swenson Hall or our Yellowjacket Union Student Center—the main hub for students coming and going between classes and dining. The recommended times are Monday-Thursday between 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. For more information, please contact Career Services to explore scheduling and marketing options.  

Host Information Sessions

Information sessions are another effective way to connect with students.

  • Virtual Info Sessions: virtual information session requests have increased tremendously over the last few years and have proven to be an efficient method to share information with students.
    • You can host your virtual info session on Handshake or use your own conferencing platform.  
    • Please note: UW-Superior protocol is to accept most information session requests in order to provide students with access to as many options as possible. Employer event request acceptance does not indicate endorsement of sessions or employers. We are unable to promote all sessions or guarantee student attendance.  
  • On-Campus Info Sessions: contact Career Services to explore options for collaboration for in-person information sessions that could potentially be hosted on campus.  

Connect with Student Organizations

You can reach out to UW-Superior Student Organizations to explore ways to network. You could consider offering to give a presentation or share industry information at one of their upcoming meetings.
