    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.

    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.
