Local businesses and organizations invited to the UIS "Foot in the Door" career fair
The “Foot in the Door” event is intended to bring students, local employers, and organizations together to discuss career opportunities in a broad range of available positions. Local businesses who are recruiting students to fill part-time jobs, internships, volunteer and other career opportunities are invited to participate in the event, which typically yields over 250 students. All attending employers should have immediately available opportunities for students.
Booth assignments will be made on a first-come, first-served response basis. Additionally, interviewing rooms will be available for employers use during the fair. Set-up for the event will begin at 10 a.m. on September 6.
Employers can register for the “Foot in the Door” career fair by visiting the UIS Career Development Center’s online system called “CareerConnect” at www.uis.edu/career/. Click on the “Employers: Login here” option to get started. The deadline to register is Monday, August 27.
The “CareerConnect” system also allows employers to establish a company profile and post career opportunities at no cost. UIS students and alumni are then able to view and apply for positions directly through the system by uploading their resume.
For more information or if you have questions about registration, contact the UIS Career Development Center at 217-206-6508 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
