Career Forum

A forum brings together a panel of professionals to discuss a topic and includes Q &A with USF students. Topics vary from trends in a field, career paths, job success skills and more. Each panelist has five minutes to present on a subject. This is a great opportunity for panelist to connect with up and coming graduates.

Job Shadowing/Informational Interview

An Informational Interview also known as Job Shadowing is a great way for a student to explore a career related to their major. It is very helpful to students when making a career decision. This is an opportunity to meet with the professional at their worksite to discuss the rewards/challenges, trends, and the skills that make one successful in a career. Professionals find it rewarding and enjoyable to participate.
