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
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.
