Student registration for the Spring Career Fairs will open at the beginning of the Spring semester.

  • For the in-person fair on February 8:
    • Register early to save time on the days of the fair! Register and get your name badge just outside of 3200 Marston starting January 24th (open 8am – 5pm) through February 4th. Simply swipe your ISU ID (or type in your ID number) to register and get your name badge.
    • You can also register the day of the career fair on the ground floor of the Scheman Building at noon.
  • For the virtual fair on February 16th:
    • Simply log into your CyHire account, click into the virtual engineering career fair under the ‘Events’ section, and click the ‘Attend’ button.
    • Note that you will be asked to submit a resume when you RSVP, so make sure to update it beforehand (see our resume best practices here). Resumes will be released to participating employers approximately 1 week prior to the virtual fair, so it’s in your best interest to RSVP by that date. However, you can RSVP up until the day of the career fair.

Preparing for the Fairs: It is essential to prepare before the career fairs in order to be successful!

Important Special Note: Please do not accept an offer of employment until you are ready to reject all future offers.  Employers are required to give you at least three weeks to consider offers of employment so that you can participate in as much of the recruiting season as possible.  Reneging on an employment commitment is not tolerated at ISU.  If you are being pressured to make a quick decision, please inform Engineering Career Services.
