The 34th Annual CareerFest is a two-day event! For the first time, CareerFest will be held on two separate days.
- In-Person: Friday, February 10, 2023 at Moraine Valley Community College (9000 College Pkwy, Palos Hills, IL 60465) in the Southwest Suburbs of Chicago
- Virtual: Friday, February 17, 2023 via the Handshake platform. Employers and hiring organizations will be able to host virtual booths, hold 1-1 sessions, and interviews.
Both events will include students and recent graduates of 19 small, private liberal arts colleges within Illinois. Combined, the 19 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.
In this uncertain and ever-changing economy finding great candidates is still important. This year’s CareerFest gives you the chance to connect with students from 19 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.
- Career & Self-Development
- Critical Thinking
- Equity & Inclusion
Hosted by the College Career Consortium of Illinois, CareerFest will provide you access to some of the best & brightest students across the state of Illinois all at one convenient location. Join us in our 34th year of offering opportunities for students and employers to connect.
