Industry Awareness Day provides an opportunity for industry partners and students to engage. This outdoor event takes place in a fun and interactive environment prior to the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Fall Career Fair.

Industry stakeholders will highlight information about their organization’s mission, vision, values, corporate culture, and career pathways. Students will get to informally network with alumni and other key personnel. This event opens up opportunities and builds a pipeline of candidates prior to the career fair.

“Industry Awareness Day is like being in a live interactive billboard on the campus sidewalk – a no pressure, casual way to learn about and interact with companies which students may or may not have heard of before.” 

Jeff Eggert, P.E., Construction Support Engineer, CB&I
