Founded by a pair of Florida Gulf Coast University Entrepreneur Alumni, Natalie Finazzo and Connor Firmender are Fieldr. Our online software allows for students - both college and high school - to safely register, create customer profiles, and apply to posted positions on an exclusive job board. Employers are also able to safely register, create custom profiles and post a variety of positions ranging from volunteer work to internships to full-time jobs. Our platform allows users to effectively communicate through direct messaging, file sharing, and advanced search abilities.
Within six months of officially launching the platform, we had roughly 500 users and had been featured in Business Observer, Estero Life, SWFL Business Today, and FGCU Media. Hundreds of students are actively using and searching for their next position and over one hundred companies, for-profit and nonprofit, are actively using and searching for their next candidate. Fieldr has already converted full-time, volunteer, and internship positions - You can say the platform is working! Additionally, Fieldr has partnered with Lee County School District in building a private module accessible only to High School students. The platform is already expanding beyond Higher Education into High School, and there is plenty more expansion to come in 2020.
Fieldr is a web-based application that streamlines the connection between Students and Employers. Fieldr is proud to work with a formal advisory board of serial entrepreneurs and business leaders, as well as work with Robert Grabel of SCORE - who has been nothing short of phenomenal and an enormous help to our growth.
