Career Fairs and Events

Employer Institute


 As of June 1, 2020, our Employer Institute is currently on hold. 


Once we determine the safest path forward, we will post registration details to this page.


As we prepare for another exciting year of recruitment with you, our employers, we hope you will join us for this unique education and planning opportunity. The Employer Institute will ensure that you have the most up-to-date information about the University of South Florida and Career Services as we head into the 2020-21 academic year.

This will be the eighth year for the Employer Institute and each year we continue to incorporate your feedback so that you can get the most out of the event. We are pleased to feature speakers and content relevant to recruiting across all three USF Campuses: Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Sarasota-Manatee. Plus, if you are new to recruiting at USF, we invite you to join us for a new Pre-Session where we will cover a range of topics specific for getting started and some best practices to elevate your on-campus recruitment process.

You will also have the opportunity to hear from USF leadership, learn more about Economic Development in the Tampa Bay Region, and the roles our professional staff play within Career Services.


The agenda for the 2020 Employer Institute will be available soon.
