Why Recruit @EIU? | Fees| Event Information including Lodging, Parking, and Agenda

The Spring Educators' Job Fair at Eastern Illinois University provides an excellent opportunity for you to connect with candidates who are well prepared to become tomorrow's leaders to inform, instruct, and inspire students in your classrooms.   

Even though our event name has changed, our commitment to providing you a top-class recruitment experience has not.  

Eastern Illinois University has a rich tradition of preparing students to accomplish their life goals through a great combination of quality academics and personal relationships.  EIU is consistently ranked in the top third of Midwest universities in its class by U.S. News and World Report.   Student graduation and retention rates are well above state and national averages, and that success continues after students earn their degrees – year after year, Eastern ranks high in job placement, alumni satisfaction and employer satisfaction.    Learn more about our accredited programs and degrees here.
