Get a head start on the recruiting season with a virtual career fair. Register today to meet with UC San Diego’s top-tier students from a variety of majors and fulfill your internship, full or part-time hiring needs.


During the Virtual Career Fair Series, employers will be able to host two types of sessions to interact with students:

  • Group Sessions:
    • 30 minutes each
    • multiple students can attend
  • 1:1 Sessions:
    • 10 minutes each
    • one student and one employer representative can attend

In order to prepare yourself for the virtual fair and all it has to offer, please visit Virtual Fairs in Handshake: A Guide for Employers before registering.

This resource will provide valuable information on how to register, set-up both individual and group sessions, how to prepare for the fair, how to assign representatives to sessions, as well as make any needed edits to set-up.



1.   Register for the fair.

2.   Wait for the school’s approval.

3.   Once approved, make the payment (via credit card ONLY).

4.   Create group and 1:1 sessions ASAP so that students can view and register for your sessions.

There is an Employer Quick Guide available in the “Attachments” section for your reference should you need additional help.

The deadline to register is Thursday, January 7th so don't miss out on participating in this exciting virtual fair!
