    Registration invitations were mailed mid-February 2016. If you wish to receive a registration invitation by mail, please contact IVCC's Career Services Office at 815-224-0502. Now that the Job Fair invitations are mailed, the on-line Registration is now closed.
  • When are registrations due?
    The registrations are due March 31, 2016 to ensure that participants were included in all media advertising. After that specified due date, registrations continued for as long as space is available.
  • What does the registration fee cover?
    The registration fee reserves the exhibit space and includes all advertisements regarding the job fair to assure the public is aware of the great opportunity to meet you. You have the chance to promote your company on a local radio station during a live two hour broadcast from the Job Fair. Employer participants will be provided a lunch buffet and all day beverage service.
  • How much is the registration fee?
    We partnered again with The News Tribune and LaSalle County Broadcasting in order to enhance the awareness of both the Job Fair and the participating businesses. Besides having access to the best and brightest candidates from IVCC, participating employers will also benefit from the expertise and reach of our media partners in attracting qualified candidates throughout the Illinois Valley and tri-county area.  

Registration and Advertising Option fees are based on various advertising packages to participate in the 2016 Job Fair. Employers can choose their level of advertising awareness for their business by selecting any of the package levels detailed on the 2016 Employer Registration Packages printable PDF file.

  • What should we bring to the job fair?
    IVCC provides one six foot table, two chairs, and a white tablecloth. You should bring promotional items and information about your company. Electrical availability VERY is limited and you may not have access to an electrical supply. If your location does have access to an electrical supply, you will need to bring your own extension cords. Please check with the Career Services office if you have additional questions.
  • How can we hang a banner?
    If you are assigned a space near a bleacher or wall, you may be able to hang a sign or banner. Employers from previous years suggest that you bring an adhesive called COMMAND. This adhesive applies quickly - and is pulled off with a pull of a tab, leaving no damage to walls or surfaces.
