For Shaniqua Lewis, the Career Fair on the Fox was a gateway to an opportunity — an opportunity for her to keep her communications and nonprofit service education, experience and passion in the Fox River region.
The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh senior was one of hundreds of campus and Fox Valley Technical College students to attend the biannual Career Fair on Sept. 25.
Dozens of employers from companies in insurance to manufacturing joined UW Oshkosh and FVTC at the event, many relying on it as one of their main sources for new interns and employees. The Career Fair, hosted in the newly-renovated Kolf Sports Center, also featured resume consultations and free professional portraits to help add some interview-boosting polish to students’ LinkedIn profiles and online resumes.
In the video below, Lewis and others share their thoughts on the value of the collaborative Career Fair, hosted on campus by UW Oshkosh Career Services.
