Recruiting with USF Sarasota-Manatee

A successful business partnership is the result of building relationships with the USF Sarasota-Manatee campus community. In addition to advertising jobs and internship opportunities at your organization, you can partner with Career Services on a variety of programs and events designed to promote the employer to USF Sarasota-Manatee students and alumni.

We seek to partner with employers who adhere to the Principles for Professional Practice, as defined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers.

Students trust the University’s career management platform, Handshake, over any public job board because they know Career Services vetted the employer. Additionally, they believe they have a chance at landing a job with your organization because you posted with us.  Handshake provides a robust filtering system to help you identify a target population. Now, you can obtain a list of students who match the position by major, courses, skills and grade point average. Select the students name to send an individual message. Here is a sample email to help you get started. To get started, please review the How Do I Create a User Account page. 

Third-party recruiters must complete the Third-Party Employer Agreement.

The diverse USF community values and expects the respect and fair treatment of all people. For more information, please review our Diversity Policies and Procedures.
