 EMPLOYER INFORMATION 


About the event
UVa-Wise students and alumni from all majors will be available to speak with you about possible careers and internship opportunities within your organization.  Even if you don't have a current opening, this is a wonderful opportunity to educate candidates about your organization and to build a pool of potential employees for future vacancies. 

Employers may set up anytime from 9-11 am and lunch will be provided for all employers at 11 am.  Students will participate in the Career Fair from noon-3 pm.  We ask that you plan to stay for the Fair's three hours to ensure that students and/or alumni with midday classes/appointments are still able to visit with you.
