End-of-Year Career Fair

The NIU spring 2022 virtual End-of-Year Career Fair is for students, alumni and community members seeking internships and full-time, part-time, summer or fall positions, as well as on-campus employment opportunities. There is no fee for candidates to attend, and preregistration is not required.

This virtual fair is hosted via Huskies Get Hired (Symplicity). Current students, alumni and employers will use their Huskies Get Hired accounts to access the virtual fair. Students from other universities, community colleges and community members are welcome to attend and should email us at careerservices@niu.edu to request access. 

Students/candidates — let employers know you're planning to attend: Log in to your Huskies Get Hired (Symplicity) account, go to events, select the event you're planning to attend and then select the Attend tab. This is how employers know you're planning to attend and where you can see the frequently updated list of employers currently registered and start your research.

Research Employers Participating:

  • Preferred browsers: Chrome and Edge.
  • Log in to your Huskies Get Hired (Symplicity) account and click on Student/Alumni.

  • Go to the Employer tab and search and filter to find employers of interest.

    Keyword search:  Searches in the Employer Name Field and the Overview Field.
    Search by More Filters: Searches by whatever field(s) are specifically selected. “Job Titles Recruited at this Fair” and “Major” yield the best results. Once a filter is selected to search on, you’ll need to page down a bit to the “Apply” tab. Make sure that any other filters have been cleared (including keyword) before clicking on “Apply.”
