Alumni

Overview

Alumni Career Services are designed to assist in the development of career and job search strategies critical for today’s job market. As a USF alumnus, you are welcome to utilize Career Services to assist you with career transitions, planning and implementing career goals and conducting a self-directed job search. Although Alumni Career Services includes access to current employment opportunities and participation in venues in which to connect with employers, it is not designed to be an employment or “placement” service.
