Events for employers and recruiters

mock interview clinic
We offer many events throughout the year to help you connect with UVic students and graduates.

We can help you find your next great hire from UVic! Attend a career fair, host a free information session, participate as a mock interviewer and more.

Connect through our career fairs

We host 3 major career fairs each year - both on campus and online. We hope to see you there!

Co-op and Career Fair

Connect with 1,500+ students from all programs. 

Renamed this year as the 'Work Experience and Career Fair.'

Early October. On campus.

Hi-Tech
Fair

Meet 1,000+ engineering and computer science students.

Early February. On campus.

Shift into Summer Fair

Connect with UVic students as they wrap up classes and look for summer and career positions.

March. Online.

Our fairs are full-day events. As an exhibitor, you'll meet interested students, answer questions and hand out promotional material. If you're interested in increased visibility for your organization, sponsorship options are also available.

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.

Host a session or attend networking events

Host an employer or grad school info session

When: 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 normally host several sessions per month.

What's included

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 online 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 UVicCoopCareerEvents@uvic.ca to arrange an employer information session and specify if you are looking to target students in specific program areas. 

Take part in a career panel

When: October and March each year

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 UVicCoopCareerEvents@uvic.ca to volunteer as a panelist.

Participate as an interviewer in a mock interview clinic

When: 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 megt@uvic.ca.
