Services for Alumni

As our office prepares to welcome back the 12,000+ students to the Macomb campus, we would like to remind alumni that we are also here to serve you! All WIU alumni have access to our services including making appointments with staff members and signing up for eRecruiting. eRecruiting is an online system where employers post jobs and internships that are available at their company. If you register with the system, you can upload your resume for employers to view and search for companies you might be interested in working for. As stated above, you can also call our office to make a face-to-face or telephone appointment with one of our staff members for assistance with resumes, cover letters, job searching, career transitions, interviewing, etc. Please call our office at 309-298-1838 if you are interested in any of these free services.

If you are interested in attending the career fair as a job seeker, there is no cost to attend. The Law Enforcement & Justice Administration Career Fair will be held on Tuesday, September 17th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and there is no cost for employers to attend.
