Career Fairs!

If you haven’t heard already, the Spring 2013 Business Career Fair & BCS Spring 2013 Public Accounting Firms Fair will take place tomorrow (Tuesday, January 29) and Wednesday, January 30 from 12pm – 4pm at the ARC in Gym 2 and ARC MP Room 6, respectively.  To set up your two-day game plan, visit Spring 2013 Business Career Fair Participants and BCS Spring 2013 Public Accounting Firms Fair Participants for details including industry, job function, majors and degree levels recruited.

Then, do your research on the companies, including the new companies, and stop by their booths!!! Remember, these companies want to hire University of Illinois students!  Don’t overlook a company just because you don’t recognize their name or because they are small or growing…you might find an opportunity to get a broad overview of the business and get exposure to all levels of management.

Do you TWEET?

If you have a Twitter account, then please follow us @IllinoisBCS if you haven’t already!  Throughout the career fair, recruiters will be tweeting tips and advice using #UIUCBusinessCareerFair .  Make sure you’re following the trending topic!


For the first time, we are providing a photo booth free-of-charge at the career fair for students to have professional headshots taken that can be used for LinkedIn profiles, Facebook pages, etc.  Be sure to stop by the photo booth which will be set up in the foyer of ARC on Tuesday and Wednesday from 11:30am-3:30pm; you can’t miss it on your way in or out of the building!  Also, BCS will have an advising table in the same area, so stop by to talk through any last minute questions before entering the fairs.

Incentive for using a Pre-printed Name Tag at the Career Fairs:

In case you missed it last week, you have a chance to win a $20 iTunes Gift Card courtesy of BCS if you turn your name tag in at the Photo Booth on your way out on Wednesday!!!  Pick up your name tag TODAY between 9am and 4pm in BIF 1041…or tomorrow morning before heading over the fair.
