College Career Fairs

We host a number of college career fairs to support students in their professional development and give employers access to up-and-coming student talent.

Professional and Technical Career Fairs

Recruit for co-ops, internships, and full-time permanent positions at one of UC’s largest recruiting events of the year. In a typical year, more than 1,700 students attend each day. UC offers career fairs each spring and fall semester.

Spring 2021

The Spring Professional and Technical Career Fair takes place February 9-10, 2021, and will be virtually hosted in Handshake. Recruiters and job-seekers alike can participate from office or home using a desktop, laptop or tablet. No travel required!

Click on the links below to register the session you prefer to attend (login required). NOTE: Employers who want to attend both the Professional Day and the Technical Day will have to register separately for each day.

Last Day to Register

Register no later than January 22 so you have time to build out your recruiter schedules and students can sign up for virtual sessions.


Due to COVID, we will not host post-fair interviews on site. Please plan to set up interviews directly with your top candidates at your convenience, on your own schedule, and on the platform of your choice (e.g., telephone, WebEx, Microsoft Teams, Zoom).


Standard registration is $300 per day. A nonprofit rate of $150 per day is available to 501(c)(3) organizations.


Payment is due January 29, 2021. We ask everyone to pay by credit card to help protect the health and safety of our staff. You will receive an invoice upon approval of your career fair registration. If you cannot pay by credit card, please contact us.
