Our reformatted event now includes a "reverse fair" and luncheon where you will have the opportunity to meet with leaders of diversity campus groups, learn what skills & abilities their organizations are developing in their members, and arrange opportunities to more fully integrate your diversity professional development services with their membership.   Please feel free to bring diversity recruitment media to share!  Did you know?  EIU has a current diversity enrollment rate of 26%!  

After our "reverse fair" and luncheon, you will meet with hundreds of Eastern's talented and career focused graduate and undergraduate students.  

We offer high visibility for recruiting employers with campus-wide promotions and advertising to 11,000+ Eastern Illinois University students, current graduates and recent alumni. Whether you use career fairs as a preliminary pre-recruitment activity or as your primary sourcing tool, you will find what you need at the EIU Job Fair!
