NIU faculty and staff welcome to job fairs


Over 300 employers will be on campus for two job fairs in February looking for NIU candidates for their internships and full-time positions. Faculty, staff, alums and community members are welcome to attend. We ask for your help in encouraging students to connect with their possible future employer at one of these events.

Candidates should dress professionally and bring several copies of their résumé. Before the fairs, candidates can view the list of employers attending and find preparation help with Career Fair Success Tips. Résumé assistance for NIU students is available in the Career Resource Center, Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Campus Life Building, room 235. The Career Resource Center will not be open on the day of the fairs.
