The University of San Diego's curriculum teaches students to navigate a diverse collection of disciplines, perspectives, and people. This diversity not only opens students minds but also expands their future horizons, preparing them for the range of careers that they will have in a lifetime. The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is committed to preparing student-athletes for life after the University of San Diego. USD Athletics has partnered with the University of San Diego's Career Services and through specific networking events, career workshops, resume writing services and individual career counseling, Torero Career Development programs are intended to prepare student athletes for the world of work that awaits them upon graduation. Our career activities are aimed at developing not just short-term internship and employment prospects, but also long-term career success in a variety of fields for our graduates.

Torero Networking Night is a unique venue to explore numerous career opportunities, make personal contacts, gather information from potential employers, demonstrate an ability to communicate effectively and interview with employers. The event also provides an opportunity for employer representatives to promote their organizations/agencies and increase visibility to participating student athletes and Torero Athletics. Interviews are arranged to provide student athletes with an opportunity to earn a second interview with employers as the result of a favorable response during networking/interviewing. Ideally, the outcome is to secure an internship/job position. At the very least, it is a chance for student athletes to practice and refine their interviewing skills. The networking night begins with a traditional open career fair and then transitions to "Five 12 Minute" interviews among employers and student athletes in attendance. Building on the achievements of past events, Torero Networking Night continues to be a resounding success with many more job opportunities ahead.
Torero Athletics is proud to have the loyal support of the employers who attend Torero Networking Night!
Toreros in Town is a career exploration program, where student athletes have the opportunity to tour companies, meet staff, get a feel for the company culture and network with alumni while competing on the road in various cities.
