For assistance, email careers@eiu.edu with your name, major, email address, phone number, the best time to reach you, and the topic you'd like to discuss with our staff.

We'll have staff available remotely from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, who will reach out to you to respond to your career concern.

For employers or others with questions about engaging with EIU Career Services, please contact us at careers@eiu.edu and we'll reach out to you to assist with your needs.
