Two women shaking hands

Employers need to look no further than the Illinois State career fairs to identify outstanding talent for their open positions.

Illinois State University’s Career Center is pleased to announce that registration for its fall career fairs is now open.

Recruiters from all over the nation know the quality of Redbird candidates. Career Center Partner and Enterprise Group Talent Manager Drew Butts said, “From 1992–2017, we hired 473 Redbirds total. That’s the highest number of any college in the Midwest and the seventh best of any college in the nation!” It’s no surprise Redbird talent is in high demand, considering Illinois State made U.S. News & World Report’s 2018 rankings of America’s best public national universities, at No. 83, based on academic quality and excellence.

“Enterprise Holdings is pleased to hire Redbirds. In fact from 1992–2017, we hired 473 Redbirds total. That’s the highest number of any college in the Midwest and the seventh best of any college in the nation.”—Drew Butts
