College of Health Sciences
The College of Health Sciences and the CHS Alumni Chapter were proud to host the 2nd annual College of Health Sciences Career Fair! The career fair, held on April 15th, 2013, offered over 125 students and alumni the chance to meet with many of Milwaukee’s leading health care organizations.
The CHS and its Alumni Chapter sponsor the event as a service to students looking to begin a career in health care and to CHS alumni who might want to explore other fields in health care.
Student comments were all positive. Hanna Paul, a pre-occupational therapy student, said, "I was able to meet with representatives of several prominent companies. I also found out about local career and volunteer options within the OT field."
The careers represented in the College, from athletic training to sonography, are highly sought after by the health care industry. According to the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics, employment opportunities for CHS graduates will remain in the double digits for the foreseeable future.
Attending a career fair is a wonderful opportunity to be seen and to meet with recruiters and potential employers. It’s a great way to gain information about available positions and companies in general.
