Looking to hire great talent? According to our manufacturers survey last year, workforce issues were one of the top issues for Wyoming entities. The low population density of Wyoming that makes it such a wonderful location for all types of outdoor recreation also creates a challenge for businesses looking for talent. As Workforce Development is one of Manufacturing-Works five key focus areas we wanted to provide you with some support on finding the right candidate for your next hire.

One way to identify young talent is through the University of Wyoming job fair. The University of Wyoming is hosting two spring job fairs and you are invited to attend. The Business, Industry and Government job fair will be held Tuesday, February 21st from 1-5pm. The Engineering and Sciences Job Fair will be held Wednesday, February 22nd from 1-5pm. Both will take place in the Marion H. Rochelle Gateway Center on the UW Laramie campus.

If your company would like to attend the job fair and meet prospective employees, please REGISTER via Handshake. Please click on the following link to get started: https://app.joinhandshake.com/login?school_approval_token=4tivwtgUSOtNdMp2iHdkfbNHnNofpPFm_IBsj4Wx0gsFnEceiaa3Jw

Handshake is the new UW career services platform. Once you log in you’ll be able register for job fairs post jobs and internships, and request on-campus interviews. It is a great tool to help you connect with the talent pool at the University. Whether you are looking for an intern, new graduate, or masters/Phd, the job fairs are the place to make those connections.

Can’t make it to the Job fair? We understand. Quite of few of our smaller businesses and manufacturers don’t have the time or resources to send a person to Laramie to recruit for a day or two. Manufacturing-Works has a solution for you as well. Manufacturing-Works will have a table at the spring job fairs and we want to represent any company that can’t attend. We can help with anything from passing out information about your company to gathering resumes based on your needs and criteria. So don’t let the snowy roads or the long drives keep you from having a presence at the University of Wyoming job fairs. Let us recruit for you so you can focus on your business. Please call us at 307.766.3056 or email us at jwatso20@uwyo.edu.
