Career Fair

The 8th annual Corporate Internships & Careers in the Research Park is April 2, 2014. If your company would benefit from recruiting more University of Illinois students for internships and/or full-time positions, you will not want to miss this event. Each year we have 200-300 students attend, which is a great way to meet students that are specifically interested in working in the Research Park.

  • Meet graduate and undergraduate students seeking internship and career opportunities in engineering, business, and technology

  • Raise awareness of your company

  • Learn more about additional recruiting opportunities at the University of Illinois

The event will be held on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the Research Park. The career fair will take place in the Atkins Building (located at the corner of First Street & St. Mary's Road), at 1800 South Oak Street. Students do not need to register in advance.
