How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in the University of the Fraser Valley. To submit an application, follow these steps:


Create a separate application for each posting/competition

  1. Include your cover letter.

  2. Include your résumé or curriculum vitae and, include your contact info.

  3. Include where you saw the posting (e.g. UFV website, or an external job board such as University Affairs, LinkedIn, etc).

Clearly mark your application with the posting number

Each UFV job posting contains a unique posting number (e.g. #2016.xx).  Clearly marking your application with this number ensures your documentation is received and assembled together for a Selection Advisory Committee's review. (Please also provide the posting number to any References who may be submitting documentation to UFV on your behalf.)

Note: Although Human Resources accepts 'general applications' for employment (i.e,. not submitted for a specific job posting), we are unable to assess such applications for current or prospective opportunities. Instead, individuals should check UFV Careers site for updates for new opportunities of interest.
