  • Up to 8 company representatives can be present per booth;
  • Group and private chats available per recruiter;
  • Resume book offered through VFairs. Search functions available.

No in-person interview spaces will be available following the Fall 2021 Job Fair. We encourage all companies to facilitate and schedule their own virtual interviews via Zoom, Skype or other options.

Brief company descriptions should be uploaded during registration. Company names and descriptions will be made available to students in advance of the job fair.

Companies wishing to post job announcements in advance of the fair should do so via Handshake, our online job board. No individual listings will be sent to students. Please contact Engineering Career Services (217-333-1960) if you have questions about posting on Handshake. Important: entering postings into Handshake does not register you for the job fair.
