Tips on Getting Noticed
Working in human resources, I often get asked for advice from job seekers on how to stand out from the crowd, particularly at an event such as the UW-Stout Career Conference. While it’s a bit cliché, it’s true that first impressions leave a lasting impression. We like to put a face to a name, so stop by and introduce yourself to Sheila and Tammi. You’re more likely to get noticed if you come prepared and act professionally. Do some research on our website to get a sense of what we do and how our positions might align with your interests. Bring your resume and cover letter and be prepared to tell us what sets you apart from the competition. Provide examples that showcase your capabilities. Be sure to tell them what you are expecting in a job or internship and show us that you are knowledgeable about IWCO Direct.
Finally, if you’re unable to attend the UW-Stout Career Conference, check out our job postings on our Careers page and complete the employment application. For internship opportunities with us, apply to the posting on the Careers page and we will keep in touch.
