Southern Illinois University hosted the Spring 2012 Career Fair on Wednesday, February 22, in the Student Center ballrooms. Students from all majors across campus looking for internships, full-time positions, or networking opportunities were able to meet with over 40 companies and organizations in attendance.

A wide variety of employers were represented at this year’s fair. Some of the companies seeking to hire business students included:  Aldi Inc., Buckle Inc., Archer Daniels Midland Company, Mediacom, Harrah’s Casino and Hotel, and Northwestern Mutual, among several others.

To better prepare students, the College of Business placement center held Career Fair Workshops in the weeks prior to the fair. Each workshop offered students tips on how to improve their resumes, information on how to prepare to attend the fair, what to do at the fair, and how to follow up with the employers after the fair.
