Career Fairs

Career Fairs are great opportunities to showcase your skills and talents. Each semester employers visit EIU to recruit upcoming graduates and students for internships and entry-level career opportunities. Networking at career fairs is a great way to land interviews and job offers. Take advantage of this chance to interact face-to-face with employers.  


All Fairs for the Fall Semester will be held virtually through HANDSHAKE.  Log in to your HANDSHAKE Account HERE.
