Students and alumni do not need to register for career fairs.
Attendees should check-in with staff upon arrival to receive a name tag. The Career Services advising table is available for any last-minute advice.
Business professional attire is recommended for all students and alumni attending Career Fairs. Business casual is recommended at a minimum — no sweats, and no denim.
- Clothing should be clean. Neutral colors are recommended.
- Hair should be neat and clean in a style that keeps hair out of the face.
- Nails should be clean and trimmed.
- Avoid cologne or heavy perfume.
- Avoid overly distracting accessories, jewelry and makeup.
- Cover visible piercings and tattoos.
Transportation is not provided to career fairs.
For attendees without a parking permit, no permit is required in Blue Lot 57 and Red Lot 34, west the Kibbie Dome, during the Career Fair. There are several pay-to-park lots around the Kibbie Dome and Bruce M. Pitman Center career fair locations.
One-day Visitor's Permit (U of I faculty, staff and students are not eligible.)
Off-campus visitors, including U of I alumni, can purchase a one-day visitor's pass. A license plate number is needed to make the purchase.
Some employers will host on-campus interviews. Each company controls its own interview schedule.
To express interest in interviewing with a company, talk to recruiters participating in the fair, give them your resume and inquire about interview opportunities. Attending the fair does not guarantee an interview or employment offer.
