Spring Engineering Job and Internship Fair - virtual
Our job fairs showcase only technology and engineering students. We hold two events each year, in the fall and in the spring. These events are perfect for filling co-ops, internships, part-time and full-time positions.
This event is free and open to all undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Engineering and Engineering Technology.

Trouble connecting to Symplicity: Copy and paste the URL, https://niu-csm.symplicity.com, into your browser. Navigate to Events | Career Fairs | Name of Fair you are Attending | Attend. Make sure you click the “Attend” button so that you can join chats. Upload your current resume and make sure your “Chat Profile” is current if you have not already done so. This is the only way to pass a resume to an employer during the fair.
Set your Status to Online on the day of the fair. Go to the Employer tab and search and filter to find employers of interest. Mark your favorite employers by clicking on the “Favorite” star icon, so that they will display at the top of your list. To join a 1-on-1 chat click on Join Queue. The employer you are waiting for will show up under Upcoming Chats along with estimated wait times. When it’s your turn to video chat with an employer, you will see an alert pop up on the screen. Click on the alert to see instructions on how to video chat with the employer. Please note: You must follow the instructions on the second screen (after the pop up) to click through to the actual video chat – the pop-up alert will not connect you directly. When joining a chat, instead of downloading Teams, Zoom, GoToMeeting, etc., select the option to join the meeting online and it will be faster to join. When you are done with your video chat, click End Chat, and you can write notes and use it for follow up after the fair. You can join three queues at one time. If you need to take a short break, set your Status to Busy. If you need to leave the fair, set your Status to Offline. You will be removed from any queues that you are currently in. When the fair is over, you can access your notes, the representative’s name and email, and use this information for thank you notes or other follow up.
