New virtual map feature: This year employers can take part in our new virtual part-time job locator map when registering for our traditional on-campus, part-time job fair.  This new feature utilizes an interactive map that visually showcases both on- and off-campus locations of part-time jobs in the Columbia metropolitan area.  If preferred, Employers can select just the virtual map option and not participate in the traditional on-campus, part-time job fair.  The map will be online via the USC Career Center website from August 18 - September 15, 2014.

If you are in need of ADA accommodations such as but not limited to interpreters, captioning, or enlarged print, please contact Sandra Bray at sbray@mailbox.sc.edu or 803-777-1988 for assistance.
