KALAMAZOO, Mich.—Western Michigan University is connecting students and recent graduates who are pursuing jobs and internships in a wide variety of fields with hiring employers at the 2022 lineup of fall career fairs, including the inaugural WMU Health Care, Life and Physical Science Job Fair.

Primarily in person this year, fairs begin Wednesday, Sept. 21, and wrap up with the new specialty job fair Wednesday, Nov. 9, for students majoring in the sciences who seek opportunities in biomedical, environmental, health care, laboratory, pharmaceutical, research and sustainable brewing industries.

In addition to connecting at campus career fairs in the fall and spring, representatives from Career and Student Employment Services and the Zhang Career Center have conversations with hundreds of employers about their hiring needs that lead to thousands of full- and part-time internships and jobs posted to the online career site Handshake.

Thinking ahead

Job seekers attending any of the fall fairs should research employers in advance and have an updated resume available.

WMU students and alumni can learn about specific career and employment services available to them by visiting Career and Student Employment Services and the Zhang Career Center online.
