This event fosters interaction between employers, current and prospective SCM majors, and WIU faculty and staff.

Besides attending the event and meeting with students, we will be providing display space for all of the companies participating. We hope that this space will be used for information on your company job or internship announcements that you might have, and as a place to talk with students during the event. Feel free to bring giveaways and company displays to attract students.

Visit the WIU Career Development Center for information about other upcoming WIU Career Fairs or call them at (309) 298-1838.
