Are you searching for fresh talent at your company? Do you need an intern this summer? If so, I have a suggestion. The Racine/Kenosha chapter of APICS is a member of the Great Lakes District of APICS and the district is hosting their 20th Annual Student Case Competition in February. One of the elements this year will be a job fair. Companies may send a representative to this activity at no charge. I have seen this competition many times and there are always some outstanding students participating. You will find some very talented potential employees at this event. Please see below for details.

Student Case Competition 2015 Job fair
Saturday, February 21 4:30PM- 8:30PM
APICS Great Lakes District (consisting of the states of Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan) is hosting its 20TH Student Case Competition. The case is based upon an actual problem faced by a company in the district. The students, all members of their schools student APICS Chapters, compete for prize money and also the opportunity to go to next October’s APICS Conference for further prize money for the team. There will be 24 teams with up to 8 members per team. The participants are full time students and either undergraduates or graduate students in their schools of business and/or information systems. Most participants are juniors, seniors, or graduate students.
This year the district is hosting a job fair for the participating students. We believe that they are some of the brightest and best students the schools have to offer. We currently have six companies lined up and are looking for a few more. The positions we are asking the companies to be looking to fill can be full time after graduation and/or summer internships. It is free to the companies who wish to participate.
