UNF Transportation & Logistics Career Day
Sponsored by the American Society of Transportation & Logistics (AST&L)
What recruiters need to know!
Twice a year, the T&L Program hosts recruiters from regional, national and international transportation and logistics
companies at the Coggin College of Business to conduct over 150 one-on-one interviews with current students of the UNF
Transportation & Logistics Program. The Transportation & Logistics Career Day at UNF started in 2002 with a handful of
companies and was held as an annual event until 2007. The event has since achieved such tremendous regional success
and recognition such that in 2008, Career Day became a biannual event.
Candidates are asked to register and submit a resume. Resumes are posted on a password protected website, and the link is
sent to recruiters who have an opportunity to look them over and request interviews with specific candidates using a
ranking system (#1 being their first choice). Students will also have an opportunity to request an interview with specific
companies using the ranking system.
Preferences of recruiters and students are entered into a mathematical model that computes an interview schedule based
on these preferences. For example, if a recruiter picks a student as their #1 choice and the student picks the company as
their #1 choice they are guaranteed to have an interview. Recruiters and students also have the option of declining an
interview with a specific candidate or company. This can happen for a variety of reasons and in the long run maximizes
the value of the schedule and minimizes irrelevant interviews.
Students are urged research the companies they are interested in and prepare for an interview. However it is not unusual
that last minute changes to the interview schedule will give recruiters a chance to sit down with students that were not on
the original list.
Interviews are held in 25 minute time blocks with a 10 minute break between sessions. A break room will be set up
with refreshments throughout the day. A box lunch will be available at 11:50 a.m. Feel free to eat with your colleagues
and the students, or use the time as a working lunch. This year C.H. Robinson is sponsoring a networking reception at the
UNF University Center at the conclusion of the interviews until 6:00 p.m. We encourage you to stop by to network with
students, alumni and colleagues in a casual setting.
