Annual Career Events
At the Career and Corporate Outreach Center, we strive to create lasting connections between employers and students. Each semester we help over one hundred employers and even more students connect by holding various types of career events.
For students, these events allow you to practice your networking skills, get your resume critiqued, and create opportunities in which you can meet employers who have open positions at their company.
For employers, these events allow you to meet students face to face in a more casual setting, as well as give you a unique opportunity to connect with hundreds of Nevada students at once.
Prepare for the Fair
This multi-station, drop-in event gives students insight, advice, and experience on being a more prepared Career Fair attendee and job applicant. Prepare for the Fair is a great networking opportunity that is FREE for employers and students to attend. Its intent is to help students be better prepared for the biannual Career Fair the following week.
- Dress for Success
- Introductions and First Impressions
- How to use Social Media to Attract Employers
- Mock Interviews and Career Fair Booths
- Professional Headshots
- Resume Critiques
The Networking Breakfast gives employers the opportunity to connect with students in a more casual setting with coffee and breakfast being served. This is a great opportunity for students to meet employers and gain insight on the companies attending.
Our BizTalk Blender networking events allow junior and senior students to engage in worthwhile conversations with local professionals. At the BizTalk we ask our employer volunteers to engage and lead students in one-on-one or small group discussions in order to teach students how to advance their future careers. Both students and employers may register on Nevada Careers.
Wolf Pack Shadow is a shadowing opportunity hosted 2-4 times a semester. Students have the chance to visit both Reno and Las Vegas headquarters to receive an inside view of top companies. Our goal is to provide students a day to experience various fields including marketing, management, sales, IT, and/or special divisions.
Employers, if your company is interested in hosting a Wolf Pack Shadow, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
