Career Center

Host an In-Person or Virtual Event

Employer hosted events provide an opportunity to connect with students on campus through informal networking and information-sharing.

Opportunities to Engage with Students

In-person information tabling and virtual sessions are very common and popular ways to interact with students. These free services are quick and easy branding opportunities for your organization and are highly recommended for recruiting at USC.

In-person tabling is offered Tuesday-Thursday from 10am-3pm, with the exception of school holidays, which can be found in our Recruitment Calendar.

Virtual sessions can be scheduled at your availability through Handshake
