About Us

Welcome to Career Services

Welcome to the office of Career Services, a department of Student Affairs and Student Success, at the University of South Florida.  We're excited that you have decided to stop by and visit our website.

For students, you will find information about selecting a major (or picking a new one!), information about career options, how to secure an internship or co-op, and resources for your job search.  You can also check out important information about upcoming events and our Career Preparedness Certification program.

If you are a recent graduate, remember you have one year from the date of your graduation to use our job coaching services free of charge. As an alumni of USF, you may always attend our career fairs and no-cost events free of charge for life. And, with the implementation of Handshake, you may use our online job system free of charge for life too!

For employers, learn about the services we offer for recruiting USF's diverse and talented pool of students and graduates.  You can also view our upcoming events, such as career fairs and our Employer Institute program.

For parents, family, and friends of current USF students, please take a few moments to review the content that we've put together specifically for you!  This information can help you guide your student as they navigate their career development path.

We're a member of the Florida Career Centers (FCC) organization, a consortium representing many of the career services leaders at State University System institutions.  The FCC meets 3 times per year, throughout the state, collaborating with area employers and serving as the host of the Statewide Job Fair, held annually in May.  We're also proud to be a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers, a national organization committed to providing standards, ethical guidelines, advocacy, and guidance on key issues for our profession.

While we believe our website serves as a comprehensive resource related to Career Services, we know that you may have questions or concerns related to your specific situation.  We invite you to contact the career consultant assigned to your academic discipline or drop by Career Express for no-appointment-needed support.

On behalf of the entire Career Services team, thank you for visiting our site and we look forward to meeting with you in person soon!
