KALAMAZOO--Representatives from dozens of employers, including several Fortune 500 companies, will be participating in the 15th annual Engineering and Applied Sciences Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 30, at Western Michigan University.
The fair does not require prior registration and will take place at the University's Parkview Campus near U.S. 131 and Parkview Avenue in Kalamazoo. Although open to the public, it is intended primarily for current WMU students and recent alumni who are studying in or have graduated from engineering-related fields.
During the fair, attendees will have a chance to meet representatives from a variety of organizations, make initial contacts, and discuss current and projected opportunities for full-time employment as well as co-op and internship positions. They should dress in professional attire and bring copies of their resumes.
Among the employers participating in the 2010 fair will be:

Chris Sell, WMU career development specialist in Career and Student Employment Services, says networking with potential future employers is a natural part of career planning for students.
"Any chance students have to highlight their course projects, leadership activities and co-op experiences strengthens the prospect for employment," Sell says. "And WMU students do well compared to many others. Employers are consistently impressed with the quality of our students and their ability to hit the ground running."
