New to Tampa!

Like many of you I am new to Tampa, FL and I knew right away this was a great place to stay. More than 60% of students who attend The University of Tampa choose to stay in Florida after graduation. Most of those Spartans stay in the Tampa Bay area.

 As Manager of Corporate and Community Development my focus is building partnerships with companies and organizations. This summer I hit the ground running to meet with employers in the Tampa Bay area that are eager to hire UT talent. Here are some fascinating facts! Keep an eye out for these employers and more at on campus recruiting events brought to you by Career Services such as Fairs, Info. Sessions, Open Houses, Tables, Workshops as well as on HIRE-UT:

Bright House Networks: There’s a red phone for emergency calls for banks across Tampa Bay to request a network shut down case there is a security breach. A perk for full-time employment is free cable!

Citi: Known as “the leading global financial services company” is growing in Tampa with hundreds of positions for recent grads to fill over the next few years.

Coca-Cola: A major office is located just 15 minutes from campus and they are hiring! Employees get free cases of Coca-Cola brand beverages every month!

Glazer Children’s Museum: Recruits interns and volunteers from UT regularly. The museum features CRAFTOLOGY, an annual event just for young professionals to taste craft beers, listen to local bands and connect for a great cause all inside the inspiring atmosphere of the creative and fun experiential learning exhibits for kids.

 Nordstrom: This name is eye-catching not just for style, but also for the resume with great retail and internship positions.

Northwestern Mutual: Offers a top internship program where many of the positions turn into full-time employment.

PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP: One of the world’s largest providers of Assurance, Tax and business consulting services with professional opportunities for more than just accounting majors.

Skoda Minotti, CPA: Within walking distance to campus, this local firm is growing and is featured on campus this term for On Campus Interviews!

Tech Data: Located 10 minutes from UT, a truly global company known as “one of the world's largest distributors of technology products from leading IT hardware and software producers” serving over 100 countries.

Keep an eye out for these employers on HIRE-UT.  Employers on HIRE-UT seek Spartan talent specifically… So you already have an edge! If you are curious about making the Tampa Bay area your home visit HIRE-UT ( to learn more about local career opportunities.
