More Opportunities to Connect with Students

Eagle Career Network
Post your jobs directly to the University’s career management system, Eagle Career Network, and be visible on both desktop and the mobile app for students. Use ECN to post free job listings for internships, part-time jobs and full-time jobs, schedule an information session and register for career fairs and events

The FGCU Career Development Services LinkedIn page is a great way to interact with current students, alumni and staff.  Employers can post company highlights and job / internship opportunities and engage with the community. We encourage our current and former students to follow the page and begin following and building relationships with employers.

Recruitment Wednesdays
An opportunity for students and employers to connect on a weekly basis begins September 6th. Recruitment Wednesday allows you to educate students about your organization in person on campus with representatives from your company. The opportunity is a 2-hour tabling event and is offered over lunchtime in the Cohen Center Student Union.  It is a great way to build your brand on campus and engage with students as they pass by in a high traffic area. We host three employers a week, and you are invited to attend one time per semester. Reservations can be made by contacting Mary Larkin.
