Supply Chain Management (SCM) Day - Wednesday, September 21, 2016
New for 2016
“15 on 15”: A series of fifteen minute professional development presentations for the students presented by company representatives. These will occur fifteen minutes after the start of each hour (12:15, 1:15, etc).
Video interviews: There will also be a designated area for you to drop by and participate in a short interview (1-2 minutes) for future promotional material for the event and the program in general. All you have to do is answer a simple question about the event and/or the WIU SCM program! We will have release forms available there, but if you would like one in advance for company approval, please email Honey Zimmerman (email@example.com).
Leatherneck Pride: We always enjoy seeing new and familiar faces at SCM Day. This year we are going to recognize all of our WIU alumni with a special ribbon at registration, so please be sure to let us know if you are a Leatherneck!
Inter-departmental participation: As you may know, the Department of Management and Marketing contains four degree programs (SCM, Management, Marketing, and Human Resource Management). This year we have invited these other disciplines to participate in the career fair portion of SCM Day.

This event fosters interaction between employers, current and prospective SCM majors, and WIU faculty and staff.
Besides attending the event and meeting with students, we will be providing display space for all of the companies participating. We hope that this space will be used for information on your company job or internship announcements that you might have, and as a place to talk with students during the event. Feel free to bring giveaways and company displays to attract students.
