Period of Project: January 1, 2017 – December 31, 2019; extended through December, 2021.
The purpose of this project is to develop partnerships within the higher education community, including community colleges and private institutions that lead to the granting of degrees or professional licenses and certifications to provide Civil Service employment opportunities for graduating or recently graduated students in professional occupations related to the student’s particular course of study. In doing so, this program provides an opportunity to hire recent graduates or continue relationships with current student workers with the intent of further honing their skills to meet the specific needs of employing departments. The overall success of this program will be measured by the long term and continuous employment of graduating Illinois students as permanent System employees. Specific occupational groups included in this program are limited to Professional, Semi-Professional, Managerial, and Medical Services.
