On-Campus Recruiting

Received an Offer?  Need more time to decide? Come to BCS for help

Remember that once you have accepted an offer of full-time employment, you are no longer in the job market.  You will need to contact companies still considering you and withdraw from consideration.


Accepted an Offer?  Complete the Placement Survey
As soon as you accept you offer come to BCS and complete the Placement Survey.  This is also the time to have your picture taken to add to the ‘Success Shots’ displayed on the screen in the Interview Suite waiting area.

Studying Abroad Spring 2013?

If you'll be seeking an intern or full-time position while overseas, BCS is here to help. Many employers are willing to interview ILLINOIS students by phone or Skype.   Follow BCS guidelines on providing both cover letter and resume via I-Link for consideration for an interview.  Stop by BCS if you have not received this information.

Job Shadow for Freshmen and Sophomores

Resumes of students who applied are at this time being reviewed by Job Shadow hosts. The announcement of which host company applicants have been matched with will be available via I-Link on Monday, December 3.

See a BCS Adviser for assistance in setting up your own Job Shadow if you are interested in a Job Shadow but not able to participate in the BCS Job Shadow Program.

Mock Interview with BCS Adviser - Appointments Available

Sophomores and Juniors -- NOW is the time to work on your interview skills, so you're ready to successfully interview when invited!

Mock Interviews (using a Behavioral Interview format) are scheduled on I-Link Business.  Use the "Request an Advising Appointment" link on the right side of the screen.  Carefully follow the instructions so that you have a 60-minute block of time scheduled with one adviser, and you include the position description of the job for which you will prepare and have the mock interview.
