Originally scheduled for Feb. 3, the fair was postponed due to severe winter weather, which caused travel difficulties for many of the participating employers. The free event is organized by the University's Career and Student Employment Services, and is expected to attract more than 3,000 job seekers. Although open to the public, it is tailored to WMU students and alumni.

Those attending should research employers in advance, dress professionally and bring copies of an updated resume. WMU students can receive resume critiquing in advance of the fair by taking advantage of drop-in career advising.

Nearly 130 organizations have registered to participate in the 2011 Career Fair. They represent a wide range of nonprofit agencies as well as business sectors such as engineering, health care, technology, government, retail and consumer products, insurance, transportation, construction and environmental sciences. Employers are recruiting for interns and college graduates.

Questions about the fair should be directed to event co-chairs Nick Davison and Surangi Pradhan at career-fair@wmich.edu or (269) 387-2745.
