We offer a dynamic lineup of career events. Ranging from premium career fairs and recruitment events, to educational workshops and panels, we provide students with hundreds of events to attend throughout the year. Events vary in scope and format to connect UCSB students with a breadth of career information, employers, and opportunities.

All events hosted by Career Services are open to UCSB students, as well as Alumni based on status.

Lightbulb icon  We are following university guidelines and practicing Physical Distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19. All of our events are offered virtually until further notice. See Handshake for details.
