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. New for Fall 2019, we've added a separate career and graduate school fair, and both events will coincide with Career Week, our largest career development program. Registration will only be accepted through Handshake. Upcoming events include:

Fall Career & Graduate School Fair (Events Calendar | Handshake)
October 1, 2019 (Tuesday)
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Details: This fair focuses on full-time/career positions and graduate school recruitment.

Winter Job & Internship Fair (Events Calendar | Handshake)
October 3, 2019 (Thursday)
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Details: This fair focuses on part-time/seasonal positions and internships. Organizations that are members of either the Gunnison Country Chamber of Commerce or the Crested Butte/Mt. Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce may ask their respective chamber for a discount code that will waive the registration cost during the registration process.

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 so 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 2019 will take place September 30 - October 4, 2019. If you or your organization are interested in hosting or sponsoring an event during Career Week, contact us!
