The Career Showcase is the University of Florida’s largest career fair spanning three days of virtual and in-person networking with top companies from all over the United States.

“As a graduate of the University of Florida with a background in both business and computer science, I really enjoyed sharing up to date technology trends with upcoming graduates. All students somewhat understand the B2C market but many were surprised at the overall size and areas of opportunity within the B2B market and the role our industry plays in B2B eCommerce.” stated Brian Roney, Director of eCommerce at Proforma.
