The 8th annual Corporate Internships & Careers in the Research Park takes place on April 2. This is a great way for students to meet the companies and see what opportunities are available, both in the way of internships and full-time employment, in the Research Park. Each year 200-300 students attend. It is also a great opportunity for Research Park companies who would benefit from recruiting more University of Illinois students for internships and/or full-time positions. Students DO NOT need to register for this event. Companies who participated last year included:


'Common Ground




'Lost Points



'Prairiefire Consulting



'State Farm

'Dow Chemical



'  University of Illinois Research Park
