The event will be held Jan. 24 at the UW-Stevens Point at Marshfield campus, 2000 West Fifth St., Marshfield, with employer booths set up in the university’s gymnasium noon – 6 p.m.
Nearly 50 businesses will be on-site recruiting for professional, technical, and service-related job opportunities; about 600 jobs are currently available, including full-time, part-time, casual, and seasonal positions.
Educational and resource organizations will also be available to provide career exploration/skill development information.
