Did you know that the Business Career Fair (February 3 & 4 at ARC) and the Engineering Career Fair (February 9 & 10 at the Illini Union) are open to students in the College of LAS?

This workshop will help LAS students better understand how they can prepare to get the most out of the Business Career Fair and the Engineering Career Fair.
