What is the Illini NACElink Network?

The Illini NACElink Network is a group of schools that share a common database of students, employers, and jobs. The members are the School of Chemical Sciences, the College of Engineering, the Career Center, the School of Labor and Employment Relations, the College of ACES, and the Alumni Career Center. Employers who are registered with more than one office can switch between offices without logging out and logging back in. Member offices share employer and job data, but interview schedules are still separated by office.

If I am registered with more than one office in the Illini NACElink Network, how can I switch between offices?

  • Log in to I-Link
  • To switch between offices, click on the Log in to another system link just under the horizontal navigation bar and select the appropriate office.
