Gators Hiring Gators

Gators Hiring Gators (GHG), is an initiative to leverage the University of Florida network by increasing and diversifying career and mentoring opportunities for UF candidates. Friends of the Gator Nation such as alumni, vendors, faculty/staff, families, and campus partners can help us sustain a robust employment network through promoting jobs, internships and other experience opportunities for Gators. We’re asking the Gator Nation to serve as Gator Career Ambassadors to share your knowledge, experience, and personal network to enhance employment and learning opportunities for UF candidates.

UF Faculty and Staff – Serve as a Partner of the Career Connections Center

As a faculty and staff member at the University of Florida, you can be an additional resource for internships, research and full-time job opportunities for our students. Take a look around your discipline area and your department…

  • Is a company assisting you in your research but they may not be hiring Gators?
  • Is an organization a supply vendor for your lab or office hiring UF students?
  • Do you know organizations who have a hiring need outside of your area of concentration?

If any of these questions above are ‘yes’, we need your help to create further connections for our UF community. Please contact us so we may work with you to increase employment connections for UF students and alumni by emailing ! You may also share information with your Career Connections Center liaison.
