Benedictine University: Job-A-Palooza Spring 2023

Tuesday, March 7, 2023 | 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
5700 College Road, Lisle, IL | Daniel L. Goodwin Hall

The Office of Career & Personal Development at Benedictine University is pleased to host our FIRST annual Job-A-Palooza on Tuesday, March 7th, with events beginning at 9:30AM and ending at 5:00PM, on our main campus in Lisle.

Job-A-Palooza will provide employers with the opportunity to engage with Benedictine students in a variety of ways to help develop and cultivate their career development; with the primary intent being to provide students with experiential learning opportunities (internships) and full-time employment upon graduation. Benedictine offers a wide range of majors – from Accounting to Biology, Computer Science to Psychology, Communication Arts to Engineering, Exercise and Sports Science to Public Health, and many more. We also extend invitations to our alumni who might be seeking full-time entry-level positions or to continue their career growth.
