In 1994, the UBC Computer Science Students' Society held its first Computer Careers Fair. In that year there were less than fifty students in the graduating class, and twelve companies attending this inaugural event. Many of the students were like us, trying to pursue a career in a field they enjoyed. The careers fair presented opportunities to students to meet with employers looking for well-trained and talented prospects. Over a decade later, and the emergence of the Internet is changing the way people and businesses communicate. The market for computer technologies has never been more exciting.

This year, we've partnered up with the UBC Engineering/Physics, and the UBC Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for the first time ever to bring together the largest gathering of companies We are proud to announce this year's careers fair will have the largest company turnout ever, with a total of thirty-one companies. To accommodate this number of firms, the fair will be taking place in the Student Union Building, in the ballroom and the council chambers.

Details about resume workshops, company descriptions and weekly news updates will be accessible by students on this website.
Ideas for the web site are still being considered. We will be adding information as it comes If you have any concerns or comments on how we can improve the site, feel free to let us know.

To all the students participating, good luck and may the 2006 UBC Career Fair help guide you to a long and successful career.
