The University of Florida’s signature career event, Career Showcase, is coming up on Tuesday, January 17, and Wednesday, January 18, 2023. Career Showcase is the largest campus career fair in the Southeast and a tremendous opportunity for students to advance their careers.

We want you to be a part of Career Showcase! Here are ways you can support this UF tradition:

  • Offer students flexibility around class schedules and encourage them to attend Career Showcase and the related events happening during Career showcase Week
  • Promote student readiness by encouraging them to attend Career Showcase Prep Events
  • Help students plan to attend, including researching employers using Gator CareerLink and Symplicity Jobs & Careers app
