  • When were registrations due?
    The registrations were 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.  Employer participants were 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 benefitted 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 were based on various advertising packages to participate in the 2016 Job Fair. Employers chose their level of advertising awareness for their business by selecting any of the package levels detailed in the package options.

  • What should we bring to the job fair?
    IVCC provided one six foot table, two chairs, and a white tablecloth. Employers brought promotional items and information about thier company. Electrical availability was VERY  limited and not all employers had access to an electrical supply. Those that did have access to an electrical supply, were asked to need to bring their 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.
