One of the biggest factors in getting a job is attending a career fair.  Two big career fairs for Illini, the Business Fall 2014 Career Fair and Engineering Fall 2014 Career Fair, are just around the corner.  To be successful at a career fair, international students need more thorough groundwork.  First, utilize diverse tools on campus. There are plenty of career fair prep workshops and programs:  Career fair prep workshops at Business Career Services and The Career Center, resume and cover letter creating/review drop-in/appointment with a career counselor at The Career Center, interview skills workshop at The Career Center.  Second, do richer and deeper research.  International friendly companies on INTLConnect and H1B sponsors on MyVisaJobs are must-check resources before the career fairs.  Don’t sit back and let it happen in job markets.  Be proactive and aggressive!! 

Career professionals at The Career Center and well-trained volunteers are ready for Fall 2014 ICC program. Find out who is going to help you become a confident candidate in tough job markets.
