On-Campus Job Fair

The On-Campus Job Fair was held on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. through Microsoft Teams. Recordings of the Teams sessions are available in the Participant List & Links section below.

WHAT IS the On-Campus Job Fair?

The On-Campus Job Fair is a chance for you to hear from representatives from departments on the USF campuses about their open positions. This fair is well-suited for students who are exploring Federal Work Study (FWS) opportunities, and for students who are seeking regular student employment positions.

REGISTRATION INFORMATION

The On-Campus Job Fair will take place virtually through Microsoft Teams.

Why do I have to register?

As part of the registration process, we'll ask you what types of positions you're interested in, as well as whether you're able to work physically on-campus or remotely. We're asking similar questions of the departments who register, so that we can help you match up with departments who have opportunities that may align well with your needs.

How can I register?

Registration for this fair has now closed. If you were not able to register before the event, you can still join one of the sessions as it happens today, or you will be able to view the recordings at a later date. To view the available sessions, please scroll to the Participant List & Links section.

What happens after I register?

We'll be keeping this page updated with the departments who have registered, along with the positions they have available, the position type, and the work location.

Next to each of these will be a link to a Microsoft Teams session. If you are interested in speaking with a particular department, add the event and the link to the session to your calendar. Then, at the time of the session, join the Teams meeting to hear from the department.

The sessions will last thirty minutes, with the first fifteen minutes set aside for a presentation by the department, and the last fifteen minutes dedicated to questions and answers.

If you are unable to join a session at the scheduled time, a recording will be made available on this site within a few days of the fair.

Preparation and Best Practices

Here's some information to help you prepare for the On-Campus Job Fair:

What is Federal Work Study (FWS)?

You may have been awarded Federal Work Study as part of your financial aid package. Click here to learn more about FWS, how to check if you received it, and how to use it.

What is Other Personnel Service (OPS)?

Other Personnel Service (OPS), for the purposes of student employment, is any student employment position that is not Federal Work Study (FWS). International students and domestic students without an FWS award are able to apply for OPS positions.

How do I apply for a position I am interested in?

The participant list and links section below will have information available about where the positions that department is recruiting for are posted. Most positions will be posted on either Handshake or Careers@USF.

To access Handshake, login to MyUSF, hover over My Resources, and click Find A Job (Handshake). If this option does not appear, or if this does not log you in automatically, please email us at CareerServices@usf.edu for assistance. Do not attempt to create your own account as it will not be fully synced to USF.

To access Careers@USF, click here.

Can I apply for a position before the On-Campus Job Fair?

Yes! If you see a position you are interested in you can apply for it. Be aware of application deadlines. If you would prefer to wait to apply until after the fair, know when you will need to apply by in order to be considered for the position.

When applying, be sure to read the entire job description and its requirements. Some positions require that you submit certain documents such as your resume, a cover letter, class schedule, and FWS award letters in order to be considered. Knowing that a candidate can follow all the requirements within the posting is important for hiring managers and for your ability to progress through the application process.

How do I get in touch with a department representative?

During the On-Campus Job Fair, you will be able to hear directly from department representatives who are recruiting for their open positions. You are encouraged to view their open positions before the fair and make decisions about which presentations you want to view. After the presentation, you will be able to ask any questions that weren't already covered.

Where can I get help with my resume and cover letter?

Resume and cover letter reviews are currently being offered by appointment. For more information about our virtual appointment services at this time, including instructions on how to schedule an appointment, please click here.

What should I wear to the On-Campus Job Fair?

While you do not need to have your camera turned on for the On-Campus Job Fair, it is possible that you could be invited to an interview after speaking with one of the departments. In order to be prepared for this, we recommend that you wear business casual attire, and be aware of what could be in the background of your webcam.

I'm an International Student. Can I work on-campus?

Yes! International Students can work in any regular student employment position, but are not eligible for Federal Work Study. When searching and applying for on-campus positions, be sure that the position does not require an FWS award. For more information about your employment opportunities, click here.
