January Member Meeting: Western Wisconsin Employers Win Through the UWIN Network
DescriptionA major strength for our region is our university system—we have UW-River Falls, UW-Stout, and UW- Eau Claire right in our own backyard. Are you maximizing access to the vast talent pool these schools create for our region?
UWIN (University of Wisconsin Internship Network) connects students from Western Wisconsin universities with small and mid-sized businesses and organizations. These opportunities promote academic, career, and personal development while meeting employers' workforce needs. Businesses benefit with the opportunity to test drive talent and gain new perspectives based on current knowledge and the latest coursework. Plus, you're doing your part to mentor and support up-and-coming future leaders in the workforce!
Join us as Amy Knutson, UWRF Career Counselor, shares the resources available to local businesses to assist them in hiring talent, the role UWRF Career Services plays in helping employers recruit and hire interns, and why UWIN was developed and how your business can benefit! After hearing UWIN success stories, we know you're going to want to tap into this strategy for your own workforce needs!
