Registration

Registration for the Spring 2019 Career Fair will open around November 1.

Why Attend?

Recruit for co-ops, internships, and full-time permanent positions at UC’s largest recruiting event of the year. More than 2,200 students attend each day. UC students are well-prepared, and many have prior experience in professional work settings.

The fair consists of two days: Professional Day focuses on Business and Arts and Sciences. Technical Day focuses on Engineering (including engineering technology and construction) and Information Technology.

Interview Day enables recruiters to interview qualified candidates. You may conduct up to 12 interviews per table in 30-minute blocks from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and you may request as many interview tables as you want.

All registrants receive complimentary parking and shuttle, continental breakfast, buffet lunch, beverages all day, wireless Internet access, and permission to participate in Interview Day.

Interviews

Interviews take place on Friday, September 21, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the lower level of the Campus Recreation Center. This is true even if your expo table was in the Overflow area in TUC.

If you have reserved one or more interview tables, you will receive a two-part form when you arrive. The form is pre-printed with 30-minute interview slots. Some recruiters like to fill in their interview schedule(s) as the day goes on; others prefer to contact their top candidates after the fair to schedule interviews. Either way, it is your responsibility to contact your candidates directly to schedule interviews with them. Be sure to tell them that the interview will take place on the lower level of the Campus Recreation Center (same location as the main fair). Advise them to arrive 15 minutes early.

On Friday morning, give one copy of the interview schedule to our staff and keep the other copy for yourself. Students who have an interview will wait in a waiting area until you call them over.

We ask that all interviews end by 3:00 p.m. as we start breaking down the room at that time.
