Additional Recruitment Strategies On Campus
Employer of the Week (College of Engineering & College of Business)
This event allows employers recruiting Engineering and/or Business students to set up a table in a high student traffic area at the College of Engineering and/or College of Business, at no charge. The Employer of the Week provides the employer an informal opportunity to meet with students and promote their organization on campus.
Careers & Coffee
During this event, we invite one employer to showcase their organization and available opportunities by "having coffee" with our students in the Career Corner at the USF Library's Starbucks. Held the first and third Tuesday of Each month this event provides the employer with an opportunity to informally network with students in this unique location.
This activity gives the employer a chance to provide interested candidates basic information about their organization (i.e. current opportunities, general profile information, work culture, career paths, jobs benefits, interview process, etc). The most successful Information Sessions are held on campus, provide refreshments, and allow time for candidates to ask questions and network with recruiters. In addition, door prizes and give-aways are also popular with students. Many employers choose to hold their Information Session prior to an on-campus interview, usually within 2 to 3 weeks of your interview date. Information Sessions can be held across campus.
Invitation-only Information Sessions:
Some employers choose to host an information session the evening prior to their on-campus interviews in order to brief students about the company. These sessions would still need to scheduled and a room reserved. Since these sessions are only open to students participating in interviews the next day, we recommend the company handle the invitation process directly with students.
Professional Etiquette Dinner
This event offers USF students and alumni an opportunity to polish their dining etiquette skills. While this is not a recruiting event for employers, sponsorships are available for organizations that would like to increase their name recognition on-campus.
Student Organization Presentations
Many student organizations welcome recruiters and companies to speak at their meetings regarding career-related topics. This is a great activity to brand and meet potential candidates. Requests to present are made directly to the student organization. For a list of student organizations and contact information click here.
Each Wednesday during the Fall and Spring semesters, from 10am-2pm, vendors gather at the Marshall Student Center Plaza to promote their products and/or services. This is an excellent way for employers to gain quick visibility.
