I had just been through a consolidation at the newspaper where I worked. I knew newspapers were starting a down-sizing trend, and that the next cut could include my job. Working at UF has provided the insurance benefits our family needed, and an opportunity I love -- to tell the world about the new and important work being done here.
Gators take care of each other. If you decide to make the move to UF, we want to keep you around. That's why we offer a competitive salary, a solid benefits package and the security of knowing that setting our goals high means there is always a lot of work to be done.

I couldn't have made this move if there weren't opportunities for my husband. As an entrepreneur, Darryl is excited to be in Gainesville because of its investment in growing new businesses in the region and state.
It's not every day that you see a university and city so mutually supportive. With its beautiful natural landscape, nearby freshwater springs and wide-open prairies, Gainesville has been called an "urban forest." A place "where nature and culture meet."
But there's more to the climate in Gainesville than the near-perfect weather and scenic environment. There is the climate of innovation and entrepreneurship that has resulted in the creation of a substantial number of new businesses in recent years, making the city especially attractive for dual-career families. The University of Florida has many employees whose spouses have found jobs elsewhere in Gainesville. Likewise, you'll find many working couples on campus.
If you already live in Gainesville, you know just how special this city is. Gainesville has been described as one of America's best college towns and a hotspot for talented workers. Money magazine, Frommer's and Forbes are just a few of the magazines that have named Gainesville the top city in the nation for livability.
For those of you not familiar with "Hogtown" (as it was once known), here are a few more reasons to consider making Gainesville your home.
One of the main reasons I came to UF was the ability to build this program, this dream of helping everybody. The collaborations that happen here are really quite unique and allow the work to go forward together.
Just as UF aims to rise to become one of the preeminent universities in the country, we recognize each individual’s career achievements benefit our collective efforts. The University of Florida has an abundance of tools and talent to empower employees in all areas and at every level. When our employees succeed, the University of Florida rises. We support them and their careers.
We offer training programs and resources designed to bring out your best. Courses range from business communications and management to personal development as well as financial literacy and retirement - and beyond.
