VIRTUAL CAREER FAIR APRIL 12 to APRIL 23 -- The UI Business and Liberal Arts Placement Office is offering a web-based career fair targeting full-time positions for seniors and alumni with business or liberal arts degrees.

Students and alumni can register online April 12 through April 23 at to receive a password allowing them to access approximately 50 job opportunities from over 40 companies. They will have the option of submitting an electronic resume online or submitting a hard copy resume at the Business and Liberal Arts Placement Office (BLAPO) at 24 Phillips Hall, according to Laurie Dufoe, associate director of BLAPO.

"We believe this will be a convenient way for companies to connect with UI students and alumni," said Dufoe. The fair marks the first time BLAPO has collected resumes online; it is one of the few college placement offices in the U.S. who are conducting online career fairs, she added.
