MARQUETTE (August 27, 2018)— UPWARD participated in Northern Michigan University's (NMU) Fall Fest on the first day of classes to help promote services we provide to businesses, students, and job seekers. Workforce Services Specialists, Ashley and Chris, met with students of all ages who were entering the workforce for the first time, about to graduate, looking to transistion into a professional career, or were interested in learning how they could explore different career paths. Many of the students were unaware of the personalized services UPWARD provides and plan to come to the service center before graduation. NMU's websites says, "Fall Fest is a great way for students to find out what's going on around campus and the Marquette community!" Over 70 local businesses, 25 volunteer agencies, and 100 student organizations participated in the event. Be sure to look for our table at future NMU events!
