Students talking to employer at SIU job fair

Job Fairs

The Center hosts the Job and Internship Fair every February and September for students seeking internships and career opportunities.

Additionally, the Saluki Student Job Fair is held each year in August for students seeking part-time employment in Carbondale and the surrounding area while in school.  

Spring 2020 Job and Internship Fair

February 18, 2020 | 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. | SIU Student Center Ballrooms

This fair is for students seeking internships or professional positions. Over 125 employers and 500+ students attended last year from a variety of fields. 

  • Reverse Fair | Monday, February 17 | 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. This event is held the evening before the Fall Job and Internship Fair in a less formal, more relaxed environment. Opposite of a traditional career fair, employers walk through the student exhibits and learn about their projects and cutting-edge research. Students engage employers and answer questions about their work. Past projects have included architectural and interior design portfolios, research in hospital comparison models, language interfaces, network optimization, the moon buggy, formula racecar, rocketeering team and a host of leadership and student chapters, plus many more.

Saluki Student Job Fair

This fair is for students interested in part-time employment in the area or on-campus. SIU Departments seeking student employees, along with local employers, are on hand to meet with students. The event is traditionally held the first week of class in the fall semester. We had 48 employers and 361 students attend in Fall 2019.
