THE FINANCIAL SERVICES CAREER FAIR, will feature more than 50 financial service companies and recruiters, offer education and career opportunities within the financial services industry to include investments, banking, financial technology, asset management and much more!

Employers will have access to the City of Chicago’s most talented multicultural and qualified professionals…and will be able to schedule and hold interviews with potential hires.

Employer registration open now! Employers are free of charge and encouraged to apply before Thursday, September 1, 2022.

Job Seekers and Employers should join this in-person career fair for many reasons, to include –

  • Foster meaningful connections with employers. An in-person interaction is considered one of the most effective ways to communicate. A lot can be said through eye contact, body language, facial expressions, and gestures that may be lost in translation virtually. 
  • Avoid Zoom fatigue. Although we can all agree on the convenience of Zoom, having the opportunity to explore participating employers, shake hands and engage with employers and job seekers.
  • Create your community. It can sometimes be overwhelming to try to navigate a virtual event on your own and not feel the sense of community and excitement that happens during an in-person career fair. Have a friend join you at the upcoming Career Fair, or network with fellow Chicagoans with the same career interest on-site in our network lounge. Take this opportunity to meet someone new or strengthen an existing connection.
  • You face less distractions. Virtually, you may be multitasking or may encounter technological issues. With an in-person career fair, you can easily get the lay of the land and plan your day. You will be able to prioritize and focus your time on the employers you want to meet first.
