UW-Whitewater Holds 2017 Spring Career Fair

Nervousness and excitement filled the air in the Hamilton Room, in the University Center, as hundreds students searched for possible career opportunities.  This past week the University of Wisconsin Whitewater held its annual Spring Career Fair.  The fair, put on be the Career and Leadership Center, took place from 1pm to 5pm and gives students to talk to companies about possible internships and jobs.  Students dress in their finest clothes move from booth to booth handing out resumes in hopes of impressing companies. Although it may be nerve wracking for students, many companies enjoy coming to Whitewater to find talented young individuals to fill positions at their companies.  A human resource representative for Delta Defense, a self-defense company, said she liked coming to Whitewater because to the students always seem eager to talk to companies and seem calm and collected. She stated that, “I have never seen more professional looking students who are so intelligent. It would be my pleasure to employee UW-Whitewater students as interns and full time employees.” She encourages students to check out their website if interested in career opportunities. Many other companies encourage students to do the same. Not only do companies see the advantage the career fair brings, students do as well. Many believes it gives them a leg up on their possible competition by talking to company representatives face to face.  Erica Koller, a marketing major, said,” Although the career makes me nervous, it is important that I go because I feel like companies will remember me better during the application process if they meet me face to face.  For instance, Delta Defense remember me...

My Digital Self

In today’s world, many people, myself included, receive their news via the internet. Whether it is through social media, the news source’s website, or a smartphone app people are in some way getting news digitally. For me I have never lived in the world where the internet did not exist and barely remember a time where cellphones did not, so as a teenager and young adult I rarely ever watch the news on TV to get information. For national and international news, I follow what is happening politically, especially since Donald Trump is now president.  I mostly get national news from the CNN app I have on my phone.  This app is a combination of text and videos and sends notifications to my phone when news stories break. I do follow news form my home town, which is Madison Wisconsin. I mostly find local news from Facebook. Friends and family share links to local news stories.  The links generally lead me to local news station’s website like Channel 3000. Facebook one hundred leads me to news.  Most of the time it is through links or one specific story. I can be hard to trust which is real on Facebook.  I normally trust the news credible if it is posted by the news source itself or my mom or dad’s friends share it because the older and seem more knowledgeable regarding fake news. I also use twitter but I am never really led to news sites like I do on Facebook. When I do not get my news from social media I will sometimes type in the web address to...
