Workforce Fair The Aspire Center is proud to announce the return of the largest in-person career fair in the state of Wisconsin. Students seeking to find a new internship or job should plan to attend WorkForce 2023: Jobs, Internships, and Graduate Schools.

Students: Register to attend the fair

The Wisconsin Private Colleges Career Consortium’s annual WorkForce career fair will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 21, at the Wisconsin State Fair Park Expo Center in West Allis, Wisconsin. Transportation will be provided for students from Carthage to the fair.

Jillian Arbeiter ?23 “Attending the WorkForce fair as a Carthage student connected me with a Kohl’s HR recruiter who supported and worked with me through the entire interview process. By attending a 15-minute one-on-one session with her during the fair, I made a connection and first impression that secured an interview with one of the HR directors. This ultimately led to being offered an HR compensation and benefits internship for the summer!” — Jillian Arbeiter ’23

What is WorkForce?

WorkForce enables students to network with employers from across the country, as well as connect with peers from Wisconsin’s private and public colleges in one place, at one time, in one day.

What types of organizations and graduate schools typically attend WorkForce?

All kinds! Over 150 organizations attended the fairs in previous years, including Amazon, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Medical College of Wisconsin, and ULINE.

What to bring?

Students returning to campus from winter break should bring a business professional outfit to wear to the fair. Employers appreciate students who dress to impress. Students should also bring a padfolio to hold resumes and business cards.

How to prepare?

Students should drop by The Aspire Center (fourth floor of Lentz Hall) to have their resumes reviewed by a career ambassador, or they can make an appointment with their career specialist. Additionally, multiple “prepare for the fair” programs will be posted on Handshake.

We hope to see students Tuesday, Feb. 21 for this annual event!
