For Students

The Priscilla A. Scotlan Career Services Center offers the following services to students:

  • Career Fairs
    Every year, we host two large signature events in the fall and spring which allow you to connect with a large variety of employers interested in hiring across all majors. The Fall Career Premiere will take place on September 19, 2017 and the JOB FEST Career & Internship Festival will take place on March 2, 2018.
  • Online Job and Internship Boards: Handshake & Internship Exchange
    USF has adopted a new, modern platform for college recruiting called Handshake. You’ll be able easily upload your resume and search and apply for full-time jobs and internships. In addition, our two Internship Exchange databases provide internship listings across the nation. These are internships USF shares with 30+ participating universities including Boston College, Notre Dame, Duke, MIT, Yale, USC, and Harvard University.
  • On-Campus Interviews
    Recruiters from companies such as Wells Fargo Bank, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Dolby Laboratories, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG, and PricewaterhouseCoopers visit USF to conduct on-campus interviews to recruit students directly for jobs and internships. We host on-campus interviews in both the Fall (September to November) and Spring (February to April) semesters.
  • Company Treks and Open Houses
    Every semester we plan multiple student treks which involve visiting up to three organizations in the Bay Area over the course of one day. The treks are focused on specific majors and change each year. This Fall, we will be participating in treks focusing on the Media, Technology (for both tech and non-tech students), Beauty/Retail, and Marketing/Communications industries.
  • Information Tables & Sessions
    Employers commonly host recruitment tables or information sessions during peak hours of student activity in our University Center. Students can log into their Handshake account to review dates employers will be visiting USF.
  • Special Events/Diversity Recruiting Programming
    The Career Center periodically organizes a larger diversity recruitment focused event each semester. To find out more, contact Miriam Karpilow at mkarpilow@usfca.edu.

Work with resources to ensure your resume, cover letter, and portfolio are strong. You may need to edit these documents many times, and before you get an interview, they are what recruiters and potential managers will see.
