Employer of the Month Program
UWF Community & Employer Engagement wants to recognize your organization and efforts to recruit our students and alumni! #iHireUWF will provide our office with a platform to highlight your organization, brand, and relationship with UWF.
Each month, one organization will be selected based on one of the following criteria:
- Organization attended an event or hosted a Meet & Greet/On-Campus Interview.
- Organization completed the Handshake Feedback survey (survey is emailed or a Community & Employer Engagement staff member will call of job posting closing), reported a hire to the Community & Employer Engagement staff, or utilized the #iHireUWF hashtag on social media within the selected month.
Note: At this time we are using Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for this program.
Ex: Social media sample postings using the #iHireUWF: interview with a UWF alumni working for your company, advice to students/graduates, feature of a recently hired student/alumni, etc.
The Employer of the Month selection will be made by the Community & Employer Engagement staff as close to the first of the month as possible. The organization selected will receive a #iHireUWF window decal and a tabletop pop-up banner to be displayed for the month following their selection (if local). Additionally, the organization will be promoted on Community & Employer Engagement's social media as our #iHireUWF Employer of the Month.
If you would like your organization to be considered for this program, please ensure you meet the above criteria on a monthly basis.
