UW-Madison: Leadership summit and career fair set for April 10

MADISON – All UW-Madison students are invited to attend the inaugural UW-Madison Leadership Summit and Career Fair, which aims to connect undergraduate students to employers who are hiring for summer and fall internships, part-time, and full-time job opportunities.

It will feature job opportunities at UW-Madison for freshmen to graduating seniors. There will be a career fair, professional development breakout sessions, opportunities to explore UW student hourly positions and a chance to learn about full-time university employment.

From 7-8:30 p.m., representatives from the writing center and career center will be on-site to conduct 15-minute critique sessions for resumes and cover letters.
