Recruiting and Branding Strategies

Developing and maintaining a presence in the Coggin College of Business is one of the keys to successful recruiting. The following are some ways that you can connect with students and develop or grow your company’s brand recognition.


Recruiting and Networking Events

Osprey Career Fair, is held twice a year (fall and spring) where hundreds of students and alumni of all majors come to search for internships, part-time and full-time opportunities. Our office also hosts the following opportunities:

  • Accounting Career Day
  • Accounting Career Expo
  • Finance Career Day
  • Finance Career Expo
  • Financial Planning Career Expo
  • Business Internship Fair
  • And more...

Information Sessions

Hosting an information session or hiring social is an excellent way to meet and share information about your company with students. Holding the session prior to an on campus interviewing day or just after a career fair are two ways to help maximize attendance at the event. If you would like to host an event, please contact our office or submit a request in Handshake under the “Career Events” tab.

Get Involved in the S.T.A.R. Program

The S.T.A.R. Program is a professional development program designed specifically for Coggin College of Business students. The program’s focus is on helping students advance their careers through the development of employability and networking skills. Getting involved in the S.T.A.R. Program is one of the best ways to develop your company’s presence on campus and get to know some of the top Coggin College of Business students. 


The S.T.A.R. Program Includes:

  • Workshops: Company representatives can volunteer to teach one of the S.T.A.R. workshops or a supplemental workshop on a subject that will contribute to students' professional development. Topics that would be welcomed include: "networking", "professional etiquette" and/or "successfully transitioning into the workplace".
  • InterviewPRO:  Conducting mock interviews is a great way to get to know students on an individual basis.  Students truly value and apply what they learn and it is not uncommon for a company to hire a student that they met during a mock interview. 
  • Mentor Program:  The mentor program matches S.T.A.R. certified students with local business professionals. The ideal mentor is a positive role-model who enjoys working with students to foster their professional development. The program requires a 3 hour per month commitment over a period of 8 months.
  • Sponsorship: Contact the Career Management Center to discuss current sponsorship opportunities.
