On Wednesday, September 7th and Thursday, September 8th, Engineering Career Services will be hosting the Engineering Career Fair.   The fair offers Illinois Engineering students access to 350+ companies who will be recruiting for internships and full-time employment. There is no better place for students to meet and talk with so many company representatives in one spot. 

Engineering Career Fair
Date:  September 7th & 8th
Time:  12:00 – 6:00

*To help students manage their time, we will be providing round-trip shuttle services from Grainger to ARC from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  Note the time change of the fair.  The fair will run until 6:00 pm to make it easier for students to attend after classes.

A mobile guide of the career fair is available free through the App Store: IL ECS Career Fair Plus.   The app provides a company listing, interactive floor plan, event details, real-time updates and career fair tips. Detailed information about the fair can also be found on the ECS website:

Remember that many alumni representing their companies attend the career fair, you’re bound to recognize your former students.  You are welcome to stop by the career fair and visit with companies and alumni!

Last fall, over 1,000 interviews took place the days immediately following the career fair.  As you can imagine, the Career Fair week will be very busy for students as they juggle classes, career fair and interviews.  Thank you in advance for supporting students as they students explore and pursue the many career opportunities offered this fall.   We are proud to showcase the outstanding talent that Illinois Engineering has to offer!
