Scheduling an Appointment

Please note that we are currently offering virtual appointments by either phone or video chat (via Microsoft Teams) as a result of the campus disruptions caused by the coronavirus. Access to our main phone line and voicemail are limited. If you need assistance, please contact us by email at CareerServices@usf.edu.

There are two ways that you can schedule an appointment to meet with a Career Consultant.

Online

You can schedule an appointment online through Handshake. Login to Handshake through MyUSF by clicking "Find a Job (Handshake)" under the My Resources tab. Most students should be automatically logged in.*

Once logged in, navigate to the Career Center tab at the top of the page and click "Appointments." Handshake will then walk you through the steps of scheduling your appointment. In addition to scheduling appointments, Handshake also allows you to see previous and upcoming appointments, and cancel current appointments if needed.

Please note that if this is your first time logging in, you may be asked to complete Handshake's Career Interest Inventory before you see the Career Center option at the top. While you can skip this step, we recommend that you take some time to complete the inventory as Handshake will use this information to surface relevant jobs and internships for you. You can update your interests at any time.

*If you are not automatically logged into Handshake, please do not attempt to create your own account. Instead, email us at CareerServices@usf.edu and we will create the account for you so that it will successfully link to USF. Please include the following information in your email:

  • First and Last Name
  • USF email address
  • U#
  • Name of your major/degree program
  • Semester and year you began your degree
  • Semester and year you will graduate
  • Phone Number
