UIC hosts all-majors career fair for students, alumni
Employers recruiting at the 25th annual All Majors Career Fair March 19 are looking for just that — job candidates from a variety of fields.
“Students of all majors are being recruited,” says Thy Nguyen, director of the Office of Career Services. “In fact, most employers selected ‘all majors’ when asked who they are recruiting — so don’t limit yourself!”
More than 60 employers will be at the career fair, a free event open to UIC students and alumni only.
The event, hosted by Career Services, is from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Student Center East. Students should bring current i-card for admission; alumni should bring proof of affiliation such as U of I Alumni Association card, miniature diploma or unofficial transcript showing degree conferred.
Prospective applicants from any major will have the opportunity to gather information about companies and learn about full-time, part-time and internship positions.
Representatives from industries such as technology, engineering, financial services and education will be there, as well as those hiring for jobs in criminal justice, management training, food service, retail and health care.
About 500 visitors attended last spring’s event. This year, more than 600 are expected.
Career services staff will be on hand to give advice to job-seekers.
