The University of Virginia hosts a variety of recruiting events and career fairs throughout the academic year for our students. These events provide employers with the opportunity to meet and talk with students and recent alumni about full-time, part-time, and internship opportunities.

All of the events we host are open to all UVA students. We closely collaborate with the varied career services offices around Grounds and we are happy to serve as your liaison to these offices with any recruiting questions.
