Career Close-up Events

Willamette's Career Close-up Events include Personalized Career Fairs, Employer Spotlights, Mock Interviews, and Company Treks.  These personalized career-focused events are designed to provide students with small group or one-on-one interactions with employers and corporate partners.  Employers and Recruiters tell us that they prefer small group interactions with an opportunity to get to know students on an informal basis.  Students also prefer the intimate atmosphere of our career events with opportunities to get to know employers over candid conversations.  Over time, many of these initial relationships result in internships and job offers.
