Annual Career Fair

The UPEI Experiential Education Department and UPEI Career Services will be hosting the annual Career Fair for students and alumni in March 2021. The fair will look a bit different this year!

This year's fair will consist of a Career Video Fest designed to connect job-seeking students and alumni with employers through pre-recorded recruitment videos. These videos will be shared in a series of Facebook Live events, and shared as a YouTube playlist that will be released on Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at 4:00 pm.

The Experiential Education Department will host three Facebook Live events to showcase the videos and answer viewers' questions live! The Facebook Live events will take place at: 10:00 am, 12:00 pm, and 2:00 pm (AST) on March 10, 2021.

Later that afternoon, the link to the entire playlist of videos will be shared on this webpage and on the UPEI Experiential Education's social media pages.

Important dates and times:

Career Video Fest Date: Wednesday, March 10, 2021
Facebook Live streaming events: 10:00 am, 12:00 pm, 2:00 pm
Video playlist launch: 4:00 pm

UPEI students and alumni will be able to attend the live events on March 10, and then stream the full playlist or re-watch specific videos at any time after March 10 at 4:00 pm. Job-seekers will then be able to connect with employers about job opportunities that interest them.
