New Careers Website

For Faculty and Staff

The new Careers website launched June 12, 2014. It aims to better highlight the people and the opportunities that exist across UBC. In addition to its fresh, new look, the site introduces new features and content based on the work developing a career navigation framework and the UBC employer story.

Highlights include:

  • Six staff career categories to provide transparency into the types of roles available. All staff roles have been mapped to the six categories. Each career category page on the site shows current openings in each category.
  • Introduction to the resources that are available to support faculty and staff to  think about their careers, including the introduction of Pooja Khandelwal as the Career Navigation and Transition Consultant.
  • UBC staff and faculty career stories, intended to share career possibilities at UBC and inspire those within and outside the university.
  • The “UBC Advantage” – a clear articulation of what UBC offers as an employer and what makes us different, based on five elements.

We hope you take time to explore the site and come back to it often as you think about your career and the career of others.
