Employers

We anticipate that this year's event will continue to foster 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.

The Department of Accounting and Finance will be hosting the Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) Meet the Firms Fair concurrently with the SCM Career Fair. If you are interested in having a booth with their department, please contact:
