Connect with School-Based Career Services and Events

Along with the Career Center, USC has school-based career centers or professionals committed to the career development of each USC student. USC’s federated model of central and school-based career services allows us to provide a wide range of career services and a variety of programs, workshops, and general career development advice, along with industry-specific information, job opportunities, and networking connections. Students can seek assistance from both the Career Center as well as their school-based career centers or professionals.

Communication Etiquette

  • We recommend keeping in close communication with the USC Career Center about your updated point of contacts, hiring cycle, organization culture, and brand to maximize and update your organization’s knowledge and involvement with the students.
  • It is important to maintain professional and meaningful recruiter-student communication before, during, and after the hiring process. Communicating regularly with students, even those that were not offered a position, will keep the students engaged with your recruiting process and continue to improve their application or interview outcomes.
