The Office of Career Services hosts multiple Career Fairs throughout the year. They are an excellent opportunity for job seekers to meet employers from the southern suburbs, the metropolitan Chicago area and border areas of Indiana in order to explore job opportunities and to discuss career interests and plans.

Career Fairs also offer the job seeker an opportunity to evaluate potential employers or discover employers they may not have previously considered. Our Career Fairs are open to currently enrolled students, alumni and community members, as well as students from other colleges and universities seeking employment. Admission is free. The only requirements for applicants is that they bring plenty of resumes and dress professionally.
