Recruiters

 
 

Thank you for thinking of FGCU students for opportunities in your organization. Over the years, we have found that the employers that have enjoyed the most success in reaching our students are the ones that consistently use all aspects of our services: they participate in events regularly and keep their postings in our web-based job and internship listing system (Eagle Career Link) current.  While there is no silver bullet recruiting strategy, a consistent, diversified approach yields better results.
