Other Recruiting/Branding Strategies

Developing and maintaining a presence in the Coggin College of Business is one of the keys to successful recruiting, now and in the future.  The following are some ways that you can connect with students and develop or grow your company’s brand recognition.  Please contact our office at: coggin.careers@unf.edu or (904) 620-2067 to learn more about the following opportunities.

Recruiting and Networking Events

Two student job fairs (fall and spring ) and one alumni job fair (spring) are held each year.  Hundreds of students and alumni of all majors attend these events and thus, participating in them is an ideal way to meet a large number of potential candidates in a short period of time.   Additionally, our office hosts an internship/part-time job fair each fall as well as a number of special events throughout the year.  Please check our calendar of events for additional information about these events including current dates and times.  

Hosting Information Sessions

Hosting an information session or hiring social is an excellent way to meet and share information about your company with potential employees.   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 Career Wings (select the “Career Events” tab) and we would be happy to assist you in coordinating the event.  When possible, please give us three weeks notice for scheduling purposes. 

Get Involved in the Star Program

The STAR 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 STAR 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. 

  • Workshops- Company representatives can volunteer to teach one of the STAR workshops or a supplemental workshop on a subject that will contribute to students’ professional development.  Topics that would be welcome include networking, professional etiquette, 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 driven STAR 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.
