QC Career Fair

Employer sign-up begins for QC Career Fair

Local employers are invited to sign up now for the inaugural QC Career Fair. The virtual event is planned for noon-3 p.m. Sept. 30.

The fair will include students from Augustana College, Rock Island, Ill.; Western Illinois University and Black Hawk College, Moline, Ill. and St. Ambrose University and Scott Community College, Davenport, Iowa.

The QC Career Fair will use the Handshake online platform. Employers and hiring organizations will be able to host virtual booths and conduct one-to-one sessions and interviews.  

Once registered, employers can create their schedules for the fair and add team members. Each employer registration includes up to 15 team members.

Registration for the fair is $300 for for-profit organizations, $150 for non-profits, and $200 for governmental agencies.


Each employer can set up three 30-minute group sessions of up to 50 participants. They also can set up one-to-one sessions that are up to 10 minutes each. Employers may set preferences on these meetings to qualify students by GPA, major, graduation date and other factors.

The five local institutions enroll more than 16,000 students in associate, bachelor's and master's degree programs. Most are seeking internships, apprenticeships, part-time and full-time positions in business, government, health care, manufacturing, non-profits, science and social services.

A small number of discounted spaces is reserved for organizations for which the registration fee is cost-prohibitive. Contact Lisa Slater for more information.
