Student Affairs and Services


Connecting students and employers

Career Development & Employment Services offers employers a wide range of services to help them run successful on-campus recruitment campaigns for full-time, part-time, summer, internship, and volunteer employment opportunities.

Partnering with Career Development & Employment Services at UNB is an effective strategy for companies to engage with students and attract top talent for their organizations. Our campus events serve as a platform for students to explore career possibilities, gain insights into various industries, and interact directly with professionals like you.

We recognize the immense value that your presence brings to these events, as you offer valuable guidance, mentorship, and potential employment prospects.

  • The UNB volunteer fair raises awareness about your organization and services
  • Meet with students and engage through face-to-face interactions
