The fair will offer opportunities for all majors and is open to all FGCU students- past and present. The fair will give students an introduction to a professional work environment and the chance to get involved within companies on both the corporate and local levels. There will be over 70 different employers attending this fair. The employers will include big-name companies such as Kate Spade New York, AT&T, and CarMax, as well as small, local companies and hospitals like News Bank Inc., Lee Memorial Health System, and Arthrex.

“Hertz is recently relocated to Naples and are looking to recruit after this change.” explains Reid Lennertz, director of Career Development Services. The full list of companies is linked below. If after pulling up the list of companies you find a specific company you may be interested in, select their name and receive a detailed description of what each company is looking for as well as a contact for that company. If you do not see a company that is specifically geared toward your degree, make sure to take a look at career developments services website for major-specific job fairs. “At the upcoming job fair we do not have any schools coming to recruit,” says Reid, “but we do have schools from all over Lee County coming to the fall teacher recruitment October 7th for our education majors.”

Plan on attending this event? Reid recommends, “bring a couple copies of a resume, and wear business casual in order to make a good first impression. For example, guys can wear button downs, slacks, and nice shoes.” Some common traits employers are looking for in an applicant are punctuality, problem-solving skills, good manners, and the ability to adapt. More specified qualities can differ from company to company. There will be a multitude of opportunities for FGCU students and plenty of businesses to speak with.
