Career Fairs & Recruitment Options

Career Fairs

Each semester Career Services coordinates numerous fairs and events related to employers recruitment efforts. These events can assist you in finding qualified candidates and branding your organization on campus. All events are open to all USF students and alumni.

We host the following Career & Internship Fairs: All Majors Fair; Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math (STEM) Fair; Accounting & Financial Services Fair; and Health Professions & Social Services Fair. These fairs are scheduled in the fall and spring semesters for organizations hiring for full-time, Co-op, and internship opportunities.

Our Part-Time Job Fairs provide organizations with an opportunity to meet with potential candidates for part-time, seasonal, and summer employment. These fairs are held in the fall and spring semesters.

The Statewide Job Fair, coordinated by the Florida Career Centers organization, is held in mid-May at the University of Central Florida CFE Arena.

On-Campus Interviews

On-Campus Interviews (OCI's) take place in the Career Services Office in our Interview Suites, providing you with a comfortable location that allows you to meet with many students/alumni during one visit to campus. You may interview for full-time, internships or co-op positions. Scheduling interviews are easy to do using Handshake. To schedule interviews just log into your account, select an available room and fill out an OCI schedule request form. To see detailed instructions for scheduling an interview click here.

Employer Spotlights

This is a great opportunity to host a table in high traffic areas in the Muma College of Business, College of Engineering, College of Public Health, or the Job Shop located in the USF Library. One employer is highlighted at each location per week during this event. Employer Spotlights provide an informal opportunity to meet with students. If you are interested in participating please click here to learn more.


Employer Led Workshops allow you to choose a topic you would like to help our students and alumni learn about. Topics can be similar, or the same as, what we cover during our "Prepare for the Fair" event (e.g. resume critiques, networking, dress for success, strategic job searching).

Student Organizations

Many student organizations welcome recruiters and companies to speak at their meetings regarding career-related topics. This is a great activity to brand and connect with potential candidates. Requests to present are made directly to the student organization.

Facility Tours

A great way to create interest in your organization and open positions is to work with us to organize a tour of your facility. The tours can be open to student, alumni, and faculty and staff participation. You choose!

Interact with Faculty

Are you interested in networking with our faculty and learning more about classroom curriculum? Talk to us about hosting a luncheon for select faculty members. The luncheon can be the size of your choosing and the location and food of your choosing.
