The Division of Career Pathways hosts several career fairs each year. Career fairs are a great way for recruiters to meet talented and career-ready UCI students. Our quarterly career fairs provide you with the opportunity to recruit students for part-time, full-time, and internship positions.

For the Fall 2020 Academic Quarter we are excited to partner with Handshake to host our Virtual Career Fairs. For more information on Handshake’s virtual fair platform, click Here.
