Career fairs & events

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

Virtual career fairs

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 so that you can connect with students from all three universities all in one place.

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 twice per year. You can also sponsor these events to broaden your reach at the three institutions.

October event: registration starts in June
February event: registration starts in November

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.

Email us to add your name to the waiting list for the next fair.

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.

Employer information sessions

Raise your organization’s profile with UVic students and alumni through hosting an employer information session. Email us about:

Set up your own virtual session, promote your event through your own networks and connect with relevant UVic student clubs or course unions. We may promote your session on our online events calendar and social media channels.
