The Northern Illinois University student chapter has developed a fun way for students to meet potential employers in a casual atmosphere. The third annual Meet the Students Night provided opportunities for students to visit with local employers and obtain career advice and discuss job opportunities. The event was held on a Monday evening in February, and light refreshments were served. Ten area employers attended, representing a variety of organizations including law firms, retail, placement organizations and insurance companies. Students were encouraged to bring resumes to hand out and to visit all the tables. When they arrived, each student received a brochure listing all the participating organizations. Students who visited every table were entered in a prize drawing at the end of the evening. The event helped students to prepare for their careers, while also providing organizations with a chance to identify good candidates for their job openings and internships.
