Events - Career Services

Career Services sponsors events, workshops, recruiter visits, fairs and more throughout the year. Visit Western's events calendar (public) or Handshake (students/alumni/employers) for dates of upcoming events.


Career, job and internship fairs bring together employers with Western students to advance companies, build careers and develop talent. We invite you to join us on campus for an upcoming recruiting event, or to contact us to discuss other opportunities to engage with talented Mountaineers. Upcoming events include:

Spring Career, Graduate School & Internship Fair (Events Calendar | Handshake)
February 13, 2020 (Thursday)
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
This fair is right for you if you are seeking to fill full-time, professional, and/or career positions; if you are recruiting for formal internship positions; or if you are recruiting on behalf of a graduate or professional school. 

Summer Job Fair (Events Calendar | Handshake)
March 10, 2020 (Tuesday)
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
This fair is right for you if you are seeking to fill part-time and/or seasonal positions for the approaching summer season. This fair primarily targets employers in or near the Gunnison Valley, though many Western students also spend their summers on the Front Range and throughout Colorado. 

Organizations that are members of either the Gunnison Country Chamber of Commerce or the Crested Butte/Mt. Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce are eligible for a waiver of the $25 registration fee. To claim your waiver, please email us upon registration so that we may apply the discount code prior to invoicing you.

Career Prep

Even the most qualified job candidates need to work on job search fundamentals like developing a resume and cover letter, dressing professionally, tidying up online and social media presence and much more.


Who you know if often more important than what you know. Practice networking skills and develop your own professional network through events on campus and around the Gunnison Valley.

Career Week

An annual weeklong event of career-related programming, Career Week takes place each Fall and encourages students to explore their major and career interests, develop foundational and advanced career skills and grow their professional network. Career Week 2020 will take place in early September 2020. If you or your organization are interested in hosting or sponsoring an event during Career Week, contact us!
