Events for employers and recruiters
Looking to recruit students or build your brand on campus? You can connect with hundreds of UVic students and graduates at our events throughout the year.
Here, you'll find an overview of our major events and when we typically offer them during the year. To see what's coming up next with specific dates and times, please check our events calendar.
Get involved in these events:
We host a variety of career fairs each year. Our fairs are full-day events attended by hundreds of UVic students and graduates. Exhibitors receive a booth and the opportunity to meet interested students, answer questions and hand out promotional material. If you are interested in increased visibility for your organization, sponsorship options are also often available.
- Co-op and Career Fair – Late September or early October (all students)
- Hi-Tech Co-op and Career Fair – Early February (engineering, computer science and math students)
- Tech Connect – May (engineering, computer science and math students)
When you register as an exhibitor at any of our fairs, just let us know if you’re interested in holding on-site interviews at the fair. We’ll help you organize the details.
We'll book these for you throughout the year, upon request
We offer free information session slots on campus for employers and graduate/professional schools upon request. At your session, you can discuss your organization, meet with students, answer questions, share opportunities and raise your brand profile at UVic.
We’ll arrange a classroom venue and schedule a convenient time with you to host your session. We offer standard info session slot times but can make arrangements to accommodate other times if necessary. AV (projector, screen and audio) and Wi-Fi is provided, but please bring your own laptop and connector if you'd like to give a presentation.
Promoting your session
We can help with promoting your session on our Learning in Motion events calendar, website and social media channels. If you would like posters put up around campus, you can mail these to us advance. Other promotions are up to you, but we suggest promoting on social media and/or connecting in advance with UVic student clubs or course unions that may be interested in your session.
How to book a session
Please contact email@example.com to arrange an employer information session and specify if you are looking to target students in specific program areas. We normally host several sessions per month.
These take place in October and March
We host "What can you do with your degree?" industry panels in the fall and spring to help UVic students and alumni learn about career opportunities in a variety of sectors. This series is one of our most popular events!
Sharing your own career story as a panelist helps to support students as they explore career options—and it's a great way to share information about prospects at your organization.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer as a panelist.
We run several throughout the year; time varies by program
Our students participate in mock interviews on campus to gain realistic interview experience and help them to better articulate their competencies to employers. We’re often looking for employers from a wide range of sectors to volunteer for these sessions; it’s a fantastic way to connect with UVic and share valuable feedback with our students. Some mock-interviewers have been so impressed with a student, they've made a job offer on the spot!
If you’re interested in volunteering as a mock interviewer, please contact email@example.com.
