UIS students get "Foot in the Door" at Career Fair

UIS held its Foot in the Door Career Fair on Thursday, Sept. 26. The event was geared toward connecting students, alumni, and community members with employers to discuss career opportunities.

UIS Career Development Center representatives said the fair was a great opportunity for students and employers to meet, especially given the current economy.

"It's a really good way for recruiters to come out and meet students all at once, and vice versa," director Tammy Craig said. "Students can really make the most effective use of their time when they come, because we have over 107 employers here now."

Some of those employers included ADM, County Market, Hope Institute, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
