Connect with Employers

Career Fairs

Every year, we host two large signature events in the fall and spring which allow you to connect with a large variety of employers interested in hiring across all majors. This fall, we’re hosting a virtual career fair called the Career Premiere and will take place over three days with specific industry focuses:

  • September 22 (Business)

  • September 23 (Nonprofit & Education)

  • September 24 (Government & Healthcare)

The JOB FEST Career & Internship Festival will take place on February 26, 2021. 

Students can log into their Handshake account to see the list of participating employers and sign up for the events.

Career Weeks

This fall, we will feature three virtual Career Weeks focused on specific industries.  Each week will include a career workshop to help students prepare for jobs and internships, a alumni panel with USF alums who work in the industry, and a networking/recruiting event on Zoom called a Pop-in.  Career Weeks will be:

  • October 6-8: STEM - Technology & Biotech

  • October 20-22: MarCom - Marketing, Communications, Advertising, and Media

  • November 10-12: Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion 

Students can log into their Handshake account to see the list of participating employers and sign up for the events.

Information Sessions

This fall, we’ll offer virtual Information Sessions with employers providing presentations and information about their organizations and employment opportunities.  Students can log into their Handshake account to review dates employers will be hosting virtual sessions.  

Employer of the Day

Employer of the Day allows students to have a one-on-one advice session with a real-world recruiter. They can practice their interview skills, get their resumes critiqued, learn how to research a company or an industry, or ask anything about their job/internship search in an informal setting.  Employer of the Day will take place virtually on Zoom on September 2 & 16 and October 7 & 21 in the fall.  Spring dates will be announced later.  Participating employers include the San Francisco 49ers, CA State Department of Justice, Sangamo Therapeutics, and others.  Students can log into their Handshake account to review employers participating and sign up for an appointment.
