Mission

To empower USC students to explore impactful internship and entry-level opportunities at startups across diverse industries.

About

The Startup Career Fair is hosted by Spark SC in collaboration with the Blackstone LaunchPad and several USC Career Centers. This student-led entrepreneurship initiative at the University of Southern California is the flagship startup recruiting event that is exclusively available to USC undergraduate and graduate students. This event connects top Trojan talent across the city with more than 50 California-based high-growth startup companies. This is an amazing opportunity to network within the USC community and to meet extremely talented Trojans. Companies are recruiting for full-time, part-time, and internship positions in the areas of engineering, design, business, and more!

Each semester, around 2,000+ students come to the fair and have the opportunity to engage in informative discussion with recruiters, apply for both full-time and internship positions, and learn more about the perks of working at a startup. Past attendees include Snapchat, Tinder, and SpaceX.

By connecting top California startup companies to USC’s pool of talented students, we believe we can make a positive impact on innovation in LA. The event is free for all college or university students.  See you there!
