Career & Internship Fair set for Feb. 16 in the MAC Gym

Are you a WWU student looking for job or internship opportunities? Meet with dozens of employers who want to connect with students of all majors and class levels interested in learning about environmental, sustainability or energy career options at the WWU Career & Internship Fair taking place on Thursday, Feb. 16, from 4-6:30 p.m. in the MAC Gym (Wade King Recreation Center).

The entire WWU Community, including students, alumni, and campus visitors, are welcome to attend this free event to learn about employers and get hired or build their network! This is an in-person career fair, so meeting with employers is on a first-come first serve basis, unlike virtual career fairs held last academic year.

Ready to participate?  View a list of participating employers in Handshake on the Student Preview Page.   Advanced registration (via Handshake) is encouraged, but not required, to receive updates on newly registered employers and to get career fair preparation tips!
