Think seriously about your goals.

I would advise you to think seriously about your goals, then shape your time at USF to serve those. When you’re ready to pursue an internship or entry-level position you will have endless applicable skills. It’s important to be able to speak about how the skills you earned in the work you’ve done translate to the work you want to do."

From Internship to First Full-Time Job

The job fests that the university hold every semester are golden. Personally, my experience with the accounting companies job fest was how I landed my summer internship with PwC and ultimately to my full-time offer with the company. USF is giving their students an opportunity to connect directly with the company, and I highly recommend students to utilize it."
