McBurney Center Fairs for Recently Hired Notetakers

These hiring fairs provide a quick way for new notetakers to complete their employment paperwork at the beginning of the semester and ask questions.

Spring 2020 Fairs

If you were offered and accepted a specific notetaking assignment and you are NOT currently employed by UW-Madison, you need to RSVP for one of the fairs listed below. (NOTE: UW Foundation, UW Hospital and Clinics, and UW Extension do not qualify as UW-Madison employment since they do not share the same Human Resources database. If you are currently employed by those three organizations, you will still need to attend a fair.) Your RSVP is included among the questions on the Required Notetaker Employment Survey; the link to the survey was in your notetaking assignment confirmation email. You may drop in anytime during fair hours.

  • Fair 1: Friday, January 24, 12:30 – 4:00 pm, McBurney Graaskamp Conference Room
  • Fair 2: Monday, January 27, 10:00 – noon, McBurney Graaskamp Conference Room
  • Fair 3: Friday, February 7, 11:00 am  – 2:00 pm, McBurney Graaskamp Conference Room

Can’t attend any of the fairs?  If you have class or work conflicts that prevent you from attending any of the fairs, or if the fair dates have passed when you are assigned, you must submit the documents to the McBurney Center and complete the online I-9 form no later than 3 days after STARTING a notetaking assignment. You will be considered a volunteer until you submit the appropriate employment documentation to McBurney. Please schedule a 15-minutes appointment via Doodle with the Notetaker Hiring and Payment Coordinator no later than the end of the 3-day period You will meet at McBurney.  If you cannot find an available time before the deadline, please contact McBurney’s Front Desk at (608) 263-2741 and ask to schedule an appointment with another staff member. To prevent problems, we suggest you complete the appointment before the semester begins whenever possible.
