- Recruiting Events – Attend career fairs, participate in on-campus interviewing, and join networking events.
- Information Sessions – Information sessions allow employers to talk in-depth about their organization and job/internship opportunities. Career Services can assist with arrangements and promotion to students online and via email. Learn more on our Host an Info-Session page.
- Class/Student Group Presentations – Visit the U of I campus, and give a presentation about your company during a class or student group meeting. Career Services can help by facilitating contact between employers and faculty or student group leaders.
- Place an Ad on Flat Screen Announcement Boards – This is an option in our premium services. For more information about this service, please visit Partnership & Premium Services page.

Check-in begins one hour prior to the start of the fair. Booth assignments and other day-of information will be provided.
Fall, Spring & Teacher Fairs:
Employers may conduct interviews during in-person fairs; this is an optional activity and Career Services does not guarantee private rooms or space.
The day after Fall and Spring fairs, Career Services organizes a mass interview event on campus. Our staff will check students in and direct them to a general waiting area where interviewers retrieve them when ready. Mass interviewing spaces are not private.
Fall and Spring registrations include the cost of one interview table for the day after the fair. Reserve additional day-after interviewing tables for $25 each when registering.
Career Services does not organize mass interviews for virtual fairs; however, employers have the option to create interview schedules in Handshake, separate from the virtual fair.
Lodging information for Moscow, Pullman and surrounding areas is available through Visit Moscow. Some hotels offer special rates for career fair recruiters so be sure to ask when you book your reservation.
