Career fairs & events

As an employer, you can engage with UVic student and alumni through on-campus and virtual events.

Virtual career fair

Connect with 1000+ students and alumni without leaving your office during our virtual West Coast Career Fair events.

We’ve partnered with the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University to connect you with students from all three universities at the same time.

We use a platform called Eventus that lets you set up virtual booths. You can:

  • schedule information sessions
  • hold one-on-one and group video chats
  • chat informally when candidates stop by your booth
  • see students’ résumés and cover letters
  • hold interviews on the spot

This virtual event runs in the fall. You can sponsor these events to broaden your reach at the three institutions.

Next fair: November 2 and 3, 2022. Exhibitor registration is now closed.

Hi-Tech Co-op & Career Fair

Meet hundreds of engineering and computer science students looking for co-op positions and full-time work at the Hi-Tech Career Fair, held in early February.

The next fair will take place in-person on campus on February 7 & 8. Registration will open on November 1.

Mock interview clinics

Promote your organization to new co-op students by volunteering at a mock interview clinic and giving students a chance to practice their interview skills before starting their work search.

You’ll join other employers to interview co-op students and provide on-the-spot feedback. Each interview and feedback session is about 25 minutes.

Interviews may be in person or virtual. Contact your co-op program to volunteer.

Events for Indigenous students

We run a series of events for Indigenous students each year, including career fairs and mock interview clinics.
