COVID-19 Impact on Spring 2021 Recruiting
We continue to closely monitor the rapidly evolving situation regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Our number one priority will always be the health and safety of our students, employers, staff, and community. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is open this academic year, offering a hybrid model of both in-person and virtual instruction. In-person activities are limited and are required to follow the campus and public health guidelines.

As a result, Engineering Career Services has modified our services to students and employers.
-Information sessions, tech talks or other recruiting events should be planned as virtual events.
-In-person recruiting events will not be supported.
-Virtual interviews are strongly encouraged. However, space may be available at the Illini Union for in-person interviews.
-Career development workshops and training will be delivered virtually.

As your recruiting partner, we are committed to supporting your recruitment of Grainger College of Engineering students, especially during this unique environment. We encourage you to share with us any changes to your recruiting practices or hiring needs.

The career services office is maintaining regular business hours (Monday – Friday, 8:30am -5:00pm CST) and can be reached by phone (217.333.1960) or email (
