The WetFeet Career Benchmark has launched and all Florida State University students are invited to participate! This study gives each student the opportunity to share their feedback with the employers who recruit on campus. You'll be asked to share what's most important to you - Money? Development opportunities? Location? And that information will be shared - anonymously - with over 1,200 employers across the globe.
At the end of the survey we've arranged for you to receive two free career guides from WetFeet, as well as information on how you compare with other students and which companies you might be a great match for. Please take some time between now and the holidays to share your feedback with us and employers across the country.
If that link doesn't work go directly to: https://start.wetfeet.com/survey/usss/floridastate
Do you have any questions, something to share, or just difficulties with the link? Please send an email to:firstname.lastname@example.org
