Below are some photos collected during the University of Louisville’s Ulmer Career Center Fall 2022 College, Career and Internship Fair. Students had the opportunity to learn about unique graduate school programs as well as available jobs and internships from over 40 different companies.

Greg Priester, Employer Relations and Events Manager, said that “Connecting with employers can seem very stressful,  and so the Ulmer Career Center brings in the employers ahead of time. That way, by the time a career fair event does come up, you feel so much more comfortable talking to them. And we all know, especially after the past 2 years, that there’s some value in face to face or in person interactions.”

Priester also noted that students who attended events similar to these received praise from multiple companies due to their preparedness and willingness to take to to multiple companies.

The Ulmer Career Center has events all the way up to Thanksgiving, offering both virtual and in-person options. Couldn’t make it to the Fall fair? Don’t worry, the Spring College and Career Fair is currently set for February 9th.

In addition, the email mentioned the free, 24/7 Employee Assistance Program counseling services and HR Learning Cafes, online sessions focused on continuing personal and professional growth.

The department included information about Yoga at Your Desk, U of L Telehealth Services, Anthem Health resources and links to the CDC’s self-care tips. 

Colleagues were also encouraged to check in on each other and supervisors were encouraged to create safe spaces where faculty and staff are able to speak freely. 

The university also reminded faculty and staff, they are still required to wear masks, physically distance and test for coronavirus to keep the campus community safe.
