Western Hosts “Get That Job” Event

Western staff help students with skills in finding a job

Western Technical College’s Alumni Association and Career Services Office sponsored a free presentation on finding the right job for students Tuesday evening.

Tuesday’s “Get That Job” event featured a panel of speakers who discussed qualities they look for when hiring employees. Those speakers came from Kwik Trip, Mayo Clinic, Marine Credit Union, and the Federal Government. The topics included looking for a job online, creating the perfect resume, tough job interview questions, how to make a good first impression, and using social media.

Following the panel discussion, attendees took part in roundtable discussions with local employers and Western staff and alumni. It also provided a networking opportunity for attendees.

About 125 Western students and alumni attended the event.
