Career Fairs Next Week!

Spring 2013 Business Career Fair & BCS Spring 2013 Public Accounting Firms Fair  will take place on Tuesday, January 29 and Wednesday, January 30 from 12pm – 4pm at the ARC in Gym 2 and ARC MP Room 6, respectively.  For details including industry, job function, majors and degree levels recruited, visit Spring 2013 Business Career Fair Participants and BCS Spring 2013 Public Accounting Firms Fair Participants.

Be sure to check out the new companies, do your research on them, and stop by their booths as they have internships and full time positions available and want to hire University of Illinois students!  Don’t overlook a company just because you don’t recognize their name.  Working at a small or growing company will give you the opportunity to get a broad overview of the business and get exposure to all levels of management.


For the first time, we are providing a photo booth free-of-charge for students to have professional headshots taken at the career fair 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, we 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

Stop by BIF 1041 any time, Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm, before the career fair to pick up your pre-printed name tag for a more professional look.  And, as an added bonus, if you turn your name tag in at the photo booth on your way out of the career fair on Wednesday, you will be entered to win a $20 iTunes Gift Card courtesy of BCS!!!
