Career Readiness

At Illinois College, planning your future happens every day.

Nearly 100% of Illinois College students have jobs or are in graduate school within six months of graduation.
That is because from the first day you arrive on campus, you learn who you are and where you are going. At the Office of Career Services, we assist you to match your interests and skills with career paths and graduate-level education, connecting you with hands-on learning experiences like internships, job shadowing, research opportunities and connections to professional mentors. You will Graduate READY.

At Illinois College, we have been developing leaders since 1829. With 45 majors and programs, you will have the freedom to choose a path that leads to your dream career. As you decide your major, consider how it will build your strengths into a set of skills that will make you a leader in your field.
