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.

Spring 2020 Business Expo — Jan 30

Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center, 12 - 4 p.m.

What to Do/Expect as an Employer

Registration is a two-step process. 

  1. Be sure you're registered in Handshake, UofSC's job board and recruiting system. If you are new to Handshake, it takes approximately 72 hours to get approved. For more information, you can see our Handshake fact sheet.
  2. Pay for your table in Eventbrite. If you haven't paid, your table is not reserved. 

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 table.
