The 33rd Annual CareerFest is planned for Friday, February 11, 2022 from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
The virtual event will include students and recent graduates of 18 small, private liberal arts colleges within Illinois. Combined, the 18 Illinois institutions enroll over 56,000 students in bachelor and master degree programs. Most of these students and recent graduates are seeking internships, and full-time positions in business, government, healthcare, manufacturing, non-profits, science, and social services.
CareerFest will be held on Friday, February 11, 2022 from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. using an online platform. Employers and hiring organizations will be able to host virtual booths, hold 1-1 sessions, and interviews.
In this uncertain and ever-changing economy finding great candidates is still important. This year’s Virtual CareerFest gives you the chance to connect with students from 18 small, private liberal arts colleges seeking internships and full-time positions. What sets our students apart is that their education includes not only a particular subject matter (though many of our students have more than one major) but also their exposure to all of the Career Readiness skills that are so critical in the workforce.
