    The Meaning of (Our) Life

    At College Recruiter, we believe that every student and recent grad deserves a great career. We believe in creating a great candidate and recruiter experience. Our interactive media solutions connect students and grads to great careers. 

    Our Sordid Past 

    Founded in 1991 as a publisher of campus maps and employment magazines, our mission has always been to connect great organizations with students and recent graduates. Our niche job board went live way back in 1996, which was a year after Yahoo! launched, two years before Google went live, and eight years before the birth of Facebook. 

    Our Fearless Leaders 

    Today, College Recruiter is a female-owned, small business, led by wife and husband Faith and Steven Rothberg. 

    The Boring Stuff 

    College Recruiter is the leading, interactive, recruitment media company used by college students and recent graduates to find great careers. Our clients are primarily colleges, universities, and employers who want to recruit dozens, hundreds, or thousands of students and recent graduates per year. 

    Other Than You, What We Value

    - Enthusiastic, passionate, tenacious, and fun 
    - Passionate about the customer experience 
    - Critical thinking and problem solving 
    - Embrace teamwork and collaboration

But if you dig into the college grad’s finances, you’ll quickly see that they’re likely to live in poverty. Why? Because the student debt of a…

    Do this year’s college grads face the likelihood of crippling debt and delinquent repayments?

    The student debt that Millennials and now Gen Z have and are incurring is crippling and, long-term, could financially devastate an entire generation.
