Spring career fairs start next week

NIU’s spring 2017 career events offer students and job seekers the chance to impress and network with potential employers. This spring features NIU’s Internship Fair, Full-Time Job Fair and Educators’ Job Fair. All events will be held at the NIU Convocation Center.

In preparation of the fairs, students and job seekers are encouraged to research the participating companies before attending the event, rehearse their elevator speeches, dress professionally and bring plenty of resumes, and perfect their interview skills. NIUs’s job search system, Huskies Get Hired, is an excellent resource tool where employers find new talent for jobs and internships, and where NIU students can create, upload and publish their resumes.

The Internship Fair will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. More than 100 employers will be present to connect with NIU students from all majors seeking internships. A list of participating employers can be viewed at careerfairs.niu.edu.

Admission and parking are free for this event. Huskie Bus routes 2R and 2L are also available. Students can pre-register online at careerfairs.niu.edu; pre-registration is not required to attend. Dress professionally and bring several copies of your resume.

The Full-Time Job Fair is on the following day, Wednesday, Feb. 22, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. At this event, more than 175 employers will be present to connect with NIU students/alumni from all majors seeking full-time jobs. A list of participating employers can be viewed at careerfairs.niu.edu.
