Major Meet-Ups: Week of August 30th (week prior to Career Fair)

Are you targeting a specific engineering discipline for your internships and full time jobs? Don’t miss the Major Meet-Ups where you can brand your organization and share career information ahead of the fair. These virtual events will help students explore and prepare for meeting you at the fair so that your one-on-one meetings at the fair are more focused and productive!

*This outreach opportunity is included in the career fair price and is solely reserved for those companies that are registered for the career fair.

Reverse Career Fair:

The Reverse Career Fair is an event hosted by the student Engineering EXPO committee, and provides an opportunity to learn about various engineering student organizations and find ways to partner and support these groups.

*This outreach opportunity is solely reserved for those companies that are registered for the career fair, with a fee of $50.


Students love giveaways that they receive at the career fair from meeting with potential employers.  Logo’d giveaways are a great way to increase visibility of your organization with our students.  But, since the career fair is virtual and you can’t hand out your branded items, ECS will do it for you!  Simply ship your non-perishable items to us by August 27th and we will hand them out prior to the Career Fair!  If you have reusable bags that we can ‘stuff’ with the goodies, just let us know!  Please complete this form to let us know what to expect!


The Civil Engineering department offers a targeted career fair. 

Additional campus-wide career fairs can be found on the HireIllini website.
