Career Fairs – Student Resources

If you’re not attending on-campus Engineering Career Fairs, you’re missing out on opportunities.  Companies are looking for students to fill internships, co-ops, and full-time positions from these fairs.  Engineering Career Services is here to help prepare you for these events!  We offer a variety of workshops and events prior to and after the career fair, and you can also view webinars on career related materials via our YouTube channel. Students and alumni from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are welcome to attend.  Make sure to look on Handshake @ Illinois before each career fair to see a list of participating companies.  *List subject to change as companies are continuing to be added from our waitlist.*
