To match up student job seekers with local employers, Milwaukee Public Schools will host its first-ever job fair on March 14, 2018 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Student Union. Approximately 1,000 students are expected to attend in search of summer and year-round work.
Employers will be on hand to provide information and applications for employment, and some will conduct on-site interviews. Students will have opportunities to practice their elevator speeches and learn about getting ready for their first job.
Students who complete a Work Readiness session at their school are eligible to attend the job fair. Work Readiness sessions help prepare students to fill out job applications, interview, and be ready for the world of work. Students can speak with their school counselor or stop in any College and Career Center to receive a permission slip or ask questions. Bus transportation will be provided for students to attend the job fair thanks to a generous donation from the Al Hurvis/ADAMM Education Foundation and the Automotive Dealers Association of Mega Milwaukee (ADAMM).
The UWM Student Union is located at 2200 East Kenwood Blvd., Milwaukee, WI 53211.
