Released this month (July 2014) was the list of 30 largest private employers in the Greater Green Bay area. This report, which is compiled by Advance, the economic development program of the Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce lists Humana in the number one spot with 3,167 employees, followed by Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin (2,690 employees) and Schneider (2,580 employees).
The great news for students and graduates of UW-Green Bay is that each employer on the list has some type of connection to UW-Green Bay! A large majority have listed jobs or internships with Career Services, attended our Job & Internship Fairs, and/or provided support for programs whether it was volunteering to conduct mock interviews with our students, or speaking at workshops or in classrooms. Four (4) of the employers have been recipients of Career Services’ Recruitment Partner of the Year award – WPS (Integrys, 2007), Schreiber (2011), Humana (2012), and Schneider (2013).
