Recruitment Activities

Career Fairs

The University of San Francisco hosts one Career Fair each semester, one during Fall semester in mid-September and one during Spring semester in early March. All employers registered in Handshake will be sent information for both fairs once registration opens. Career Fairs are a great way to meet qualified students and recruit students for internships and full-time jobs. Registration is only open to employers hiring for internships and full-time jobs, no part-time employers or staffing agencies may participate.

Ask A Recruiter

Ask A Recruiter (formerly Employer of the Day) allows students to have a one-on-one advice session with a real-world recruiter. They can practice their interview skills, get their resumes critiqued, learn how to research a company or an industry, or ask anything about their job/internship search in an informal setting. We will host Ask A Recruiter from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on several different weeks throughout each semester.

Spring 2022 Ask A Recruiter Days

  • February 15
  • March 8
  • April 5
  • April 19

Contact Stephanie Belfiore at sibelfiore@usfca.edu for more information or if you would like to participate in this opportunity.

Information Sessions

Set up a virtual info session to tell students about your company and open positions, and to network and answer questions. Use your own virtual meeting platform link (e.g. Zoom, Google Hangout, WebEx, etc), and create the session as an Event in Handshake to promote to students. Log in through your Handshake account. If you don’t have a virtual meeting platform, USF Career Services can help you host a session on our Zoom account. Students are likely to attend on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays between 11:45 am-1:30 pm or after 5:00 pm Monday-Thursday.
