Research companies and APPLY, APPLY, APPLY!!! They want to hire University of Illinois students!  Don’t overlook a company just because you don’t recognize its name or because it is small or growing…you might just find the perfect opportunity!

Do you have a job or internship offer and need to talk it through?

As one of the advising services offered by BCS, you can schedule an appointment or stop by BIF 1033 during walk-in hours to discuss the offer and if applicable, requesting extensions and negotiation strategies.

Things to Remember When Scheduling a BCS Mock Interview:
  • Each mock interview must be TWO consecutive 30-minute appointments, so that you meet with the adviser for 60 minutes in one appointment. 
  • When you schedule the mock interview, you must submit a description of the position for which you will be interviewed. 
  • If you only schedule ONE 30-minue appointment for this service, your appointment will be cancelled and you will need to re-schedule correctly.

When in doubt, there are specific instructions on the right side of the “Request an Advising Appointment” page in regards to scheduling a mock interview with a BCS Adviser.

New I-Link Features:

“Recommended Jobs” and “Similar Jobs”…try them out or learn more from a BCS Adviser!!!

Questions about any of this?

Come to BCS in 1033 BIF for assistance!  We have walk-in hours Monday-Friday from 1pm-4pm for the rest of the semester.
