The Office of Career Services hosts a Career Fair in April each year. This is an excellent opportunity for job seekers to meet employers from the southern suburbs, the metropolitan Chicago area and border areas of Indiana in order to explore job opportunities and to discuss career interests and plans.

Career Fairs also offer the job seeker an opportunity to evaluate potential employers or discover employers they may not have previously considered. Our Career Fairs are open to currently enrolled students, alumni and community members, as well as students from other colleges and universities seeking employment. Admission is free. The only requirements for applicants is that they bring plenty of resumes and dress professionally.

    Who Moved my Cheese, 2:00 -3:00 p.m.

    We all need to be aware to how change can affect our psyche thus enabling us to move forward in life, work, and in general. No matter what environment we operate in — whether a town, city, family, workplace, relationship, or other setting — change is inevitable. “Who Moved My Cheese” by Spencer Johnson is a parable about a place that changed, and how its inhabitants reacted. This workshop will help you to identify your attitude to change and its level of effectiveness.
