Businesses and organizations are invited take part in the Career Connections Expo at UIS

Businesses and organizations are encouraged to register now for booth space at the 2016 Career Connections Expo at the University of Illinois Springfield. The fair will be held on Tuesday, February 16, 2016 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at The Recreation and Athletic Center (TRAC) on the UIS campus.

The annual event is hosted by the career services offices at the University of Illinois Springfield, Lincoln Land Community College, and ITT Technical Institute.

The Career Connections Expo is intended to bring students and alumni from all three institutions, community members, local employers, and organizations together to discuss career opportunities in a broad range of available positions. Local businesses who are recruiting candidates for full-time or part-time jobs and internships are invited to participate in the event. The event has an average attendance of over 400 students and alumni.

Booth assignments will be made on a first-come, first-served response basis. Employers are encouraged to register as soon as possible as space is limited. The deadline to register is February 5, 2016 at 5 p.m.

Employers can register for the Expo by visiting the UIS Career Development Center’s online system called “CareerConnect” at www.uis.edu/career. 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 employerrelations@uis.edu.
