Job Fair Information for Employers
Each spring in April, Illinois Valley Community College's office of Career Services sponsors the Annual Job Fair. Each year, Career Services invites eligible employers to participate in IVCC’s annual spring Job Fair.
As a participant in these events, employers:
- Increased visibility for their business.
- Saved time and money in their hiring process.
- Networked with other businesses in the community.
Our goal is to build connections.
IVCC’s Career Services Department assists IVCC students, alumni and the employers
of the IVCC District.

Essentials for Employers: Details about the Job Fair
Keep checking back for details about next year’s Job Fair information. We typically post the date and times as we prepare to mail out the employer invitations.
Selected employers invited to participate in our Job Fair will mirror the educational programs that IVCC offers, as well as reflect the employment needs of our students and alumni.
Companies offering bona fide (guaranteed wage/salaried, not 100% commission, generates
a W-2 not a 1099, no in-home situations or independent business opportunities) full-time,
part-time and seasonal job opportunities and internships may register for Job Fair
NOTE: The Career Services reserves the right to refuse services to employers due to any of the following: dishonesty; breach of confidentiality; fraud; misrepresentation; harassment of IVCC students, alumni or staff; failure to adhere to these Career Services policies and/or any other violation of IVCC rules and regulations.
Each year, Career Services invites eligible employers to participate in IVCC’s annual
spring Job Fair. Call Career Services at 815-224-0502 to ask about being included
in our invitational mailing that usually goes out the first week of February.
Or better yet, don’t wait until Spring - take advantage of our mobile friendly on-line job resource system powered by College Central Network© - year round, 24/7! IVCC's College Central Network - is a FREE job and internship posting resource for direct hire employers.
When registered and approved employers enter their postings, they have the option to select if the open position will be available to students, alumni and/or IVCC district community members that have registered into the system.
Registration and Advertising Option fees are based on various advertising packages to participate in this annual event.
Employers have the flexibility to add promotional upgrade packages to their basic registration fee. The cost to increase their level of advertising awareness for their business is outlined in the package options included in the invitational mailing AND in the online event registration site.
