If you are looking for an internship or Co-op to gain experience, or are seeking a full-time position, we invite you to attend our monthly Virtual Career Fairs this spring!

These virtual fairs are designed to help USF students and alumni, across all campuses and majors, connect with various hiring employers in one convenient afternoon.

Once you've registered, you will be able to sign up for one-on-one and group sessions with employers. Employers will set up their schedules in the Handshake fair and you can pick an available time that works well for you.

Be sure to select a time that you know you will be able to attend. If you decide you are no longer able to attend that session, leave the session so that it becomes available for another student. If you do not attend a session you have signed up for, you may be subject to any or all of the items listed in our No-Show Policy.

How can I prepare for the virtual career fair?

What if my schedule changes or I miss a session?

If you decide you are no longer able to attend a session you have signed up for, please log back into Handshake and leave the session so that it becomes available for another student.

If you do not attend a session you have signed up for, you may be subject to any or all of the items listed in our No-Show Policy.
