The Technical Career Fair has now been rescheduled.
After being postponed due to the weather, the Technical Career Fair is now being held on February 1 , 2024 within the AMS Nest Great Hall at UBC in Vancouver, from 10 A.M. – 4 P.M.
Leading employers and students will gather face-to-face at the premiere UBC networking event to discuss employment opportunities in tech.
There are typically over one or two thousand students who attend throughout the day, hailing from UBC’s computer science, engineering, arts and business programs. The event provides an ideal opportunity for students to connect with employers looking to recruit their next great hires.
At previous tech career fairs, participating companies have included Amazon, Apple, Google, Microsoft and more. After having to cancel the original fair (previously scheduled for January 18), organizers have been working hard to gain commitment from companies once again.
This year’s event is hosted by the Computer Science Student Society (CSSS), in collaboration with women-focused tech groups and the LGBTQ+ community, specifically: Women in Computer Science (WiCS), Women in Data Science (WiDS) and Queer Coded. It stands not only as a nexus for technical prowess, but also for empowerment across diverse groups.
It’s truly an incredible opportunity to connect, discover alignments and opportunities, chat with those-in-the-know, and bring about employment that can be mutually beneficial for employer and student.
For students planning to attend, we suggest: bring your best self, a resume, questions, as well as water to keep hydrated and on top of your game. Plus, check out this in-depth preparation guide.
