Students and Alumni
Career Fairs and other recruiting events are a great opportunity to meet representatives of companies looking to hire talented employees—including Illinois Tech students and graduates. At Career Fairs you also can get tips about finding a great job from students who are getting ready to graduate or alumni who are back to recruit more outstanding talent.
The next Career Fair will be held September 24, 2015 from noon–4 p.m. in Hermann Hall.
