Springboard Catapults Companies' College Recruiting Efforts With On-Campus Kiosk College Partnerships

TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Springboard and The University of Tampa today announced a partnership to place a net-based career site kiosk on campus. This means companies actively recruiting college graduates will have constant visibility, and students will be able to create their resumes on the spot, preview and apply for the latest job openings, get to know the companies' data, histories and working environment all in real time.

Aptly named SpringboardU, the partnership with UT is just the first in a series planned with universities and colleges across the nation. According to Robert Colon, President of Springboard, ``The shortage for qualified professionals in the market is forcing recruiters to look at new and creative ways to attract and retain hires. By emphasizing the college recruiting effort, companies are able to hire, train and retain graduating students. And there is no other market that is currently suffering from this dilemma than the Information Systems job market.''

Although students have access to the internet and can seek employment on their own, SpringboardU is designed to put the student and the company ``face- to-face,'' acting as a highly targeted, 24-hour, 7-days a week career fair with far less time and expense involved for companies. Overall, SpringboardU accelerates the entire college recruiting effort for companies.

Headquartered in Tampa, Florida, Springboard is an internet career site where companies can post job openings for no-fee and job seekers can post their resumes for free. Springboard is emerging as one of the fastest-growing career sites on the internet because of its uncluttered ease of use and speed.
