Unemployment Resources
For many this pandemic has affected employment status. While the Career Center is not able to directly assist with navigating unemployment claims. We can assist in the reemployment process by providing job search assistance. Here are a few resources if you are seeking unemployment. 

Virtual Backgrounds
It is important that your background not detract from your interview or your skills. Use these simple USF branded backgrounds in lieu of your bedroom backdrop. These are great for interviews or even class. Click the image to download or click the link below to download a mirrored version. Be sure to preview your settings on a test call prior to your interview, sometime the image appears backwards if you don’t adjust settings or upload already mirrored image.
