Employer Services - Academic & Recruiting Calendar


The Career Center is actively planning for the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 recruiting seasons.  We plan to open fall programs and services on July 8, and this webpage will be updated prior to the launch.  In the meantime, you can view the UC Berkeley Academic Calendar (PDF).  Please visit our COVID-19 Resources page for ongoing updates and email us with any questions.

Refer to the academic and recruiting calendar below to help you plan your campus activities for the Fall 2019 - Spring 2020 recruiting season.

We will open the calendar for our Berkeley Circle employers to schedule interview dates on Monday, May 13.  All other employers will be able to schedule interview dates and register for career fairs beginning June 1.  In order to participate in campus recruiting, you must have a Handshake account.  Handshake is our career management system and free job posting platform.
