FAQs

The Kinesiology Career Fair is open to all interested University of British Columbia students.

As a Kinesiology student, you have a wide variety of opportunities to connect what you’re learning in the classroom to the work setting through experiential learning, volunteer placements, part-time jobs, preparing for graduate school or in your career after graduation. No matter what year level you’re in, this is a great opportunity for you to start making KINnections, asking industry-specific questions and finding out more about what you can do while you’re earning your KIN degree.

By coming to the Career Fair you can:

  • speak with exhibitors about current and future job, internship, volunteer opportunities
  • discover how what you’re learning in your classes applies to the workplace
  • learn about industry trends
  • discover different areas in the Kinesiology and Health Sciences field
  • hear success stories and tips from industry professionals during the panel speaker series
  • Connect with other KIN students and industry professionals who share a passion for helping others

Our exhibitors come from a vast array of areas within the Non-Profit/Government, Education and Private field. Depending on the sector, you’ll meet some employers who are wearing suits, others wearing "business casual", or even athletic apparel.

If you want to make a positive impression, be sure to look neat, clean, and presentable. First impressions count, so keep this in mind when you’re planning what to wear on January 9 for the Career Fair.

  • Spend some time researching the participating organizations and the exhibitor’s website.
    • Prepare yourself for conversations by asking questions like: What are this company’s goals and priorities? What does this company value or care about? The more you know about a company or school the better equipped you are to demonstrate how you will be a good fit with their culture and goals.
