MENOMONIE, Wis. (WEAU) - The University of Wisconsin Stout kicked off its 2022 Spring Career Conference Week on Monday.

The event, which features more than 340 different employers, takes place inside the Memorial Student Center all week long on UW-Stout’s campus.

This year, the event is being run in a hybrid format, with in-person fairs offered all week and a virtual option on Friday. Bryan Barts, Director of Career Services at UW-Stout, says it is a “must-attend event” for any student.

“Any student who is looking to build their career and professional development needs to attend this event,” Barts said. “The value of a career fair like this is not just job opportunities, but it’s also networking.”

Barts said that employers will send UW-Stout alumni back to campus, giving students an opportunity to make connections they couldn’t make otherwise.

“A lot of them come back and have an opportunity to network with students who are taking some of the same programs with the same professors,” Barts said.

Wisconsin Lt. Gov. and U.S. Senate candidate Mandela Barnes visited the conference Monday and also visited UW-Stout’s plastics lab.
