The 2019 Television, Radio and Video Job Fair at EIU

Thursday, 28 March, 2019 @ 11:00 AM - 01:00 PM | Cost:Free

Representatives from 18 different television, radio, and video production companies will look to connect EIU students with media careers and internships on March 28 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the University Ballroom in the EIU Union.

The annual Television, Radio and Video Job Fair provides a rare opportunity for media students to interact with employers actively seeking content creators and crew for video / programming / audiovisual material, on-air talent, and promotions / sales specialists.

Each year the Television & Video Production B.A., WEIU-TV and FM, and Career Services collaborate to recruit a wide variety of quality media organizations. This year set the record for the number of companies attending.

“The diversity and quality of media companies attending this year's job fair speaks to the quality of student at EIU as well as the reputations of the production, broadcast, and communication degrees,” said Director of the Television & Video Production B.A. and Associate Professor Scott Walus. “We have never seen such a diversity in positions and companies.”

In a two-hour span, students can meet with television, radio and video production companies from all over the state. These media professionals will discuss their companies' current job and internship openings as well as knowledge about how to prepare for a career in the television, radio, and video production industries.

The Television, Radio and Video Job Fair is open to all interested EIU students, EIU alumni, as well as individuals from the community. There is no charge to attend.
