Fall 2017 Career Fairs at SIU Carbondale

As mid-summer approaches, it is time to think of the fall recruiting season! SIU Career Services is excited to host two career fairs during the fall 2017 semester – the STEM Career Fair on Tuesday, September 19 and the University Career Fair on Wednesday, September 20, 2017. Both fairs are scheduled for 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the SIU Arena. The STEM Career Fair is designed for organizations recruiting from science, technology, engineering, and math programs, while the University Career Fair is for those organizations recruiting from all majors.  Career fairs at SIU typically bring in between 600 and 1000 students seeking internship and full-time opportunities.

Registration for both the fairs will be processed via Handshake, the university’s new career services management platform. To register for the one or both of the career fairs, please follow these simple instructions:

1.       Go to siu.joinhandshake.com

2.       Click to “Employer”

3.       Complete the signup process (SIU Career Services will then approve your account – this usually takes less than 24 hours)
