What is Opportunity Meet-Up?

The Opportunity Meet-Up is a networking event with a fluid atmosphere, without the boundaries of the career fair, with the flexibility for students, alumni and employers to connect in a relaxed environment for jobs, internships and more. This is a premier opportunity to showcase the array of talent available at the University of Florida.

Opportunity Meet-Up Event Schedule

TUESDAY, September 24TH, 2024

Through casual networking conversations, you can ask employers about their organization, available positions, and their own career path. You will also be able to showcase your own unique skills and experiences that you can bring to their organization. Make sure to bring hard copies of your resume to share!
