Welcome to the University of South Carolina Career Center Spur Connections Database!
WHAT IS THE SPUR CONNECTIONS DATABASE?
Spur Connections is a tool to help practitioners (both USC alumni and non-alumni) assist USC students and alumni in learning more about various positions and industries. USC students and alumni will be able to search the Spur Connections database and contact mentors for such activities as email networking, information interviewing, job shadowing, etc.
