Business EXPO

If you are an employer looking to source early career business talent or experienced graduate level business students, then attending our Business EXPO needs to be part of your recruiting strategy. These events are hosted each semester and typically attract more than 125 employers from all sectors, and more than 1,500 students from all majors and programs.

Fall 2024 Business EXPO

Wednesday, Sept. 25
10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center

What to Do/Expect as an Employer

Registration is open and is a two-step process:
  1. Register in Handshake for the event
  2. Pay and choose your table in Eventbrite

If you do not complete the first step, students will not be able to see what positions you have available. If you do not complete the second step, you will not have a booth.

If you have any questions, please contact the OCM at 803-777-0149 or

The Expo will be returning to the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center located at 1101 Lincoln St. in downtown Columbia.

You must visit Handshake to enter available positions. For all postings, there is an approval process which takes 24-72 hours. We strongly encourage you to post well in advance of the event to give students time to research the positions. 

You can view our Handshake FAQ page if you are new to the system.

Once you have registered and paid, you will be contacted with further details on setting up your booth.

You can chose to schedule an interview booth at the Columbia Convention Center the day after Expo. Instructions for this will be sent along with your Expo registration.

To schedule an interview on another day, enter your interview request in Handshake and select "Rooms Only" as type. You can also view the USC Career Center's interviewing guide for more help.

No — this event is exclusively for business majors.  


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
