Connecting Students and Employers

Each year, Millikin hosts several campus career fairs to connect students/alumni and employers (scroll down to view this year's events). We hope that you'll consider joining us for one or more of these events. We are confident you will be impressed with our students!

About Millikin University

Why participate in career fairs?

The process of recruiting qualified employees can be costly, time-consuming, and frustrating. Career fairs are an efficient and effective way to screen many candidates in a relatively short period of time. We are convinced that you will find that our students and alumni are among the best and brightest of the Midwest!

Our career fairs give you the opportunity to:

  • Meet qualified, well-prepared Millikin University students and alumni who are seeking full-time job opportunities
  • Meet with students seeking information about internship and career opportunities
  • Interact with our faculty and staff
  • Obtain resumes and informally interview or screen candidates
  • Promote your organization to the Millikin University community

If your organization would like to attend one of our career fairs and you are not currently on our mailing list, please email us at
