The NIU Educators' Job Fair consists of two sessions:

  • Open Session: Candidate entry times differ for NIU and non-NIU attendees. During this time, candidates talk briefly with recruiters. Most recruiters will be screening candidates during the Open Session to determine whether to offer afternoon interview slots.
  • Pre-scheduled interview by invitation only

During the morning session of the NIU Educators' Job Fair, the employers with whom you meet will tell you if they want to interview you. If they do, they will give you a paper re-entry ticket for the afternoon session. Only candidates who receive a paper ticket will be permitted to re-enter the fair in the afternoon.
