CARBONDALE, Ill. — Local businesses and campus departments who are searching for employees are invited to participate in Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s fall 2019 Saluki Student Job Fair.

The event is from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., Aug. 21, in the Student Center Ballrooms.

Connect with qualified student employees

The event assists local businesses and university departments in identifying and hiring qualified people for their student employee positions, as well as connecting students with local and on-campus employers. Last fall, 439 students checked in at the job fair.

University departments with immediate openings, as well as those anticipating job openings for the fall and spring 2019-2020 academic year are welcome to attend.

Register by Aug. 16 for a free spot

The event is free for potential employees and for businesses or SIU departments. Businesses and on-campus departments are required to register online by Aug. 16. The sooner that business and departments register the greater visibility for students to see available opportunities.

The Saluki Student Job Fair is sponsored by Career Development Center, New Student Programs and the Student Center. For questions, call 453-2391 or email careerdevelopment@siu.edu.
