Career Fairs and Events

Talent Marketplace

Our Talent Marketplaces are lower-cost, in-person, casual events focused on a specific area of recruiting. They have been designed to provide an opportunity for our students and alumni to explore a specific industry, occupational pathway, or specific recruiting initiative.

The Talent Marketplace events are hosted on the same day as the university's Bull Market -- creating a natural flow of students for both events. Employers who participate in our Talent Marketplace events will have the opportunity to meet with USF students and recent graduates from all three campuses.

Organizations that are actively recruiting to fill full-time, internship, or Co-op positions aligned to the specified Talent Marketplace theme are invited to register.


Talent Marketplace: Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Opportunities
Companies and organizations with specific recruiting programs, initiatives, or strategies that are designed around the qualities, experiences, and work styles that make individuals unique (e.g. age, race, religion, disabilities, gender, ethnicity) are invited to join us for this Talent Marketplace event. Share full-time, Co-op, and internship positions related to the work of DEI as well as DEI hiring programs and initiatives from across your organization.
