The Fall Education Job Fair at Eastern Illinois University provides an opportunity for you to connect with candidates who are prepared to become tomorrow's leaders to inform, instruct, and inspire students in your classrooms.   Whether you are seeking candidates for mid-year openings, or wish to use this event as a preliminary recruitment tool for future vacancies, you will most likely find what you need at EIU!  

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 No. 6 among the Midwest’s top public regional universities. Eastern also was ranked 40 among all Midwestern regional universities offering a full range of undergraduate majors and master’s programs.  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.
