My name is Jane Smith and I’m graduating in May from USF with a degree in nursing. My goal since childhood has been to be a nurse. Right now, I’m currently a part-time lab assistant at St. Mary's Hospital and I volunteer in their oncology unit as well. My eventual career goal is to work in pediatrics, preferably with cancer patients, but I’m open to other assignments as well, especially starting out. I’m ready to start!

Hi, my name is Tom Parker my classmates sometimes call me “The Excel Guru.” I’ll be receiving my degree in finance from USF this fall. My passion is helping companies measure, make and save money using my finance and accounting expertise. I have a great foundation and a special skill for complex problem solving and am looking for an employer who can appreciate the uniqueness of what I have to offer. I’m eager to find someplace where I can be challenged every day.
