COVID-19 Impact on Fall 2021 Recruiting – Updated 7/29/2021

Our number one priority will always be the health and safety of our students, employers, staff, and community.  Following CDC guidelines and recommendations, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is planning for in-person classes and activities in the fall. We will also shift to in-person recruiting activities again this fall. However, new CDC and Campus Guidelines require face masks to be worn in all campus buildings.

1) the Career Fair will remain virtual, managed through Handshake (registration is open)
2) a small scale, full-time job fair has been added; registration is managed through Handshake
2) in-person corporate branding days (outdoor) are available
3) on-campus interview space can be requested through Handshake
