Jan. 23, 2001

KALAMAZOO -- Seasoned professionals as well as new graduates and intern candidates will be able to learn about a wide range of employment opportunities during Western Michigan University's 23rd annual Career Fair.

Career Fair 2001 will take place on campus from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 1, in the East and West ballrooms of the Bernhard Center. It is free, and advanced registration is not necessary.

The fair brings job candidates together with recruiters from local, state and national employers. More than 150 organizations from as far away as California and Florida will be on hand for the 2001 event, which is expected to draw some 2,500 persons. Those attending are expected to wear professional attire and bring an ample supply of resumes.

Career Fair is designed for area college and university students as well as alumni, but members of the general public also are encouraged to attend. This year, greater emphasis is being placed on attracting alumni and graduate-level students who are seeking employment.

WMU's Career and Student Employment Services, part of the Division of Student Affairs, is sponsoring the fair in conjunction with the University's Division of Multicultural Affairs, Alpha Omega Fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi and the Public Relations Organization.
