Uwec Spring Break 2023 – Finding community and community through service in Puerto Rico is an opportunity for students to explore cultural, political, environmental, and social differences and similarities through volunteering. Students will be able to connect with community members in this US territory through hands-on work, volunteer interviews, and educational opportunities. The exposure of these pieces allows students to think critically about individual identities and privilege.
UW-Eau Claire partners with international community partnerships to create a unique experience in Puerto Rico for our participating students. The immersion program is ten (10) days long with all transportation, lodging, food and organization fees. The students will be exposed to the local culture through everything from food to serving our place and will have an opportunity to think about their role in the global community. The overall volunteer program can be customized, but the work of previous volunteer groups can help families rebuild their homes, help Boys & Girls Clubs and HeadStart programs, and help restore a devastated environment.

For the U.S. college class of 2021, an estimated 4.4 million new members, the past year has brought much shock. Often relegated and locked away, they have missed many of the joys of college life: small classes, games, parties, spring break, beer pong All of these appear to be crown jewels in an uncertain labor market. While the outlook is encouraging, US unemployment is 6.1%, up from 3.5% shortly before the pandemic. To find out what you think about wearing caps and gowns, he visited one of the West’s A-campus middays, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, the top regional public college where our winter classmate Adam Pearson is graduating. 2021. His report;
For the 1,646 graduates who graduated from UW-Eau Claire last weekend, it’s a tale of two. Appleton Waters of Madeline, Wis., is one of many that have found a lack of demand in select industries. “Water,” she said, who double-majored in Spanish and public communications. “Something where I can use both is really, really amazing,” he said. Similar work in the digital market, but the draft is: “Many places require you to have experience, which is understandable, in addition to many internships and similar articles that were closed due to Covid.” In the meantime he said: “I only ask what I can.”

On the other hand, Mary Mullenhauer of Taylor, Wis., who majored in criminal justice and minored in psychology, already has a job lined up. This proof will also be the agent’s credit. “I feel like there are a lot of options out there, a lot of openings,” he said. “I had no trouble finding a job.”
What drives these different expectations? In the depths of the pandemic last spring, new college graduates faced a historically bleak outlook. The decline in jobs for jobs requiring a degree in the sky fell 40% between March and May 2020, more than any other type of education, according to research by Burning Glass Technologies, a market analysis firm. The discrepancy has closed somewhat since January of this year, at 12%, but many new graduates are still feeling the gap.
One of the most important is the industry they enter: healthcare is hotter than ever, while many parts of business and media are still cool. Another thing is experience: those who had jobs and other businesses before the pandemic, or who found opportunities during the crisis, felt they were at an advantage. However, overall many graduates find work as the economy recovers, brightening the horizon with their careers.
Uw Eau Claire Admissions
Taj Jackson of Evanston, Ill., who graduated with a degree in sociology and a minor in human resources, had already applied for a job in the office of a nursing home company. For over a year he consulted with the Jackson Group, where he visited the telephone service and promoted the company on the stock exchange. “I have a lot of employees, so they say, ‘Don’t be afraid to contact us.’ There is no doubt that we have a place for you,” he said. He had to wait for his career. “Really, not for my whole life, but like three, four years, I feel. You know- look where I can go with the company. But for me the end is the end, to be my own friend.

The internship inspired Nikolaus Spittelmeister of Hartford, Wis., in a different way. He found a “pretty boring” job that gives him a place to return to his previous specialty: San Francisco. Spittelmeister, who graduated with a degree in business administration and a minor in German, took a job there at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. He will start next month as a bank examiner, “Certain banks do not reline and do accurately identify consumers’ credit.”
Uw Ec Professors, Alumni Criticize Chancellors For Lack Of Transparency
Graduates who have gradually gained interest from employers, but without a job so far, feel that the lack of internship opportunities has held them back in the past year. Marin Munos of Aurora, Illinois, who majored in journalism and women’s, gender and sexuality studies, is not looking for a position in the for-profit sector. “I had a few interviews and made the second round a few times, but more often than not I asked for someone with experience,” he said. “As a recent college graduate, it’s really hard for me to get the experience they’re looking for. And because of Covid, everyone’s looking for a job, so the job market is really competitive right now.
Trevin Henson, whose hometown is Eau Claire (pop.: 68,802), is majoring in business administration with a minor in finance. He wants to go into banking, insurance or financial services, but is still looking. “The job market is better than I thought it would be coming out of the pandemic, but there certainly aren’t as many jobs as there normally would be,” he said. “Also, I want employers to have three to five years of experience in jobs they don’t need.” Madeline Waters, a communications graduate, put it bluntly: “It seems like a ridiculous expectation.”
Sarah Heller, of Chippewa Falls, Wis., who earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN), will begin her first job as a nurse in the intensive care unit at Marshfield-Eau Claire Medical Center. “I think the job market is pretty crazy with Covid, even in nursing,” he said. “I was excited for the interview with the employees so I could meet my managers and co-workers who I think will help.”
For New College Graduates, A Bleak Picture Turns Brighter
Pamela White, chief nursing officer at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire, confirms the demand for recent graduates. “In general, we’ve had more entry-level jobs based on Covid-19 and we need more new services to support that,” he said. White believes the need will only increase in the near future based on the expected number of baby boomers retiring. Chloe Davis, who graduated from UW-Eau Claire with a bachelor’s degree in biology in 2018, believes the power is in the hands of the applicants. “Here there are no groups or companies that are responsible. The workers are there because they need us more than we need them,” he said. “It’s time to be very good in health care.”
Other promising fields now include social services and legal, with UW-Eau Claire promising among recent graduates entering these industries. “Eleven of the 15 graduates of the paralegal program last year had jobs outside the program, and two of the other students decided to continue their studies,” said Evelyn Hitz, who holds degrees in criminal justice and sociology. “Law enforcement officers are an essential profession and have worked through the epidemic,” said Hitz, who is moving to Minnesota and has scheduled an interview for a legal assistant position at the public defender’s office.
Not every graduate jumps into a career. Some find the time right to enter a service year, or enter graduate school. Megan Ruhl of St. Cloud, Wis., who is double majoring in finance and communications, plans to spend a year at the Flumenwest Food Pantry in Milwaukee, where she will work in operations. After that, his life plans are difficult
