The Career Development Center hosts several job fairs each year, including the Saluki Student Job Fair (intended for current students seeking part-time work in the local area); STEM Job and Reverse Career Fairs (held in the fall); and the Job and Internship Fairs (held each fall and spring semester). The fairs give students the opportunity to engage with employers and learn about careers within their organizations.

Science - Technology - Engineering - Math Fairs

Fall 2018 STEM Job Fair

Tuesday, September 25 | 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. | SIU Student Center Ballrooms

SIU Career Development Center hosts several job fairs throughout the year, connecting potential employers to our students. The STEM Job Fair, open to all majors interested in careers using skills in science, technology, engineering, and math, is held once a year. 

Reverse STEM Job Fair

Monday, September 24 | 4:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. | Campus Lake Boathouse

Rain Location: Student Services Building

STEM students showcase their work for employers to view in a “reverse” career fair setting. Opposite of a traditional career fair, employers will walk thru the student exhibits and learn about their projects. Students will engage employers and answer questions about their work. Past projects have included the moon buggy, formula racecar, rocketeering team and many more. This event is held the evening before the traditional job fair in a less formal, relaxed environment and includes a picnic by Campus Lake.

Students: This event is by invitation only. Please contact your RSO or faculty member to participate.


Fall 2018 Job and Internship Fair

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 | 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. | SIU Student Center Ballrooms

This is a great opportunity for employers to network with students and alumni regarding potential job and internship opportunities. Last semester, 104 companies participated and over 1,000 students attended. First impressions are everything.
