Our On-Campus Interview Program offers an opportunity to interview for entry-level positions, internships and co-ops. Representatives from a variety of organizations conduct interviews at Career Services during the fall and spring semesters. All students are encouraged to begin interviewing in the fall semesters whether they graduate in December, May or August.
You will log in to Handshake to apply for interviews and you will be notified by email if you are selected. The On-Campus Interview Timetable is available when you log into your Handshake account and shows the deadlines to apply and sign-up if you are selected. You will want to check these weekly to see the new on-campus opportunities that have been added.
Logging into your Handshake account and clicking on the Interviews tab from the left-hand navigation bar will allow you to get an idea of the kinds of opportunities available. Although companies may indicate a preference for certain majors, you are encouraged to consider all the jobs for which you believe you are qualified. It is not uncommon for employers to interview students whose majors do not match the employers' specified requirements.
ON-CAMPUS INTERVIEW POLICIES
In order for the On-Campus Interview Program to work effectively, all parties must meet certain obligations. Employers invest substantial time and money in recruitment efforts, so it is extremely important that students treat every interview as a commitment. Missed interviews are a very serious concern because they lower the employer's impressions of our campus and take away other students' opportunities.
Scheduling an interview with an employer and not showing up for the interview is considered a "MISSED INTERVIEW." Individuals with a missed interview will be blocked from applying for and scheduling future interviews. If you have interviews previously scheduled, be sure to attend those interviews!
Missed Interview Policy
If you fail to cancel and do not appear for a scheduled interview, you will receive a letter, which will be copied to your department head, directing you to write a letter of apology to the employer and deliver it unsealed to Career Services with a stamped envelope addressed to the employer. Your opportunity to apply or sign up for additional On-Campus Interviews will be suspended until your letter is received by Career Services. Repeated occurrences will result in termination of your On-Campus Interview privileges.
If you need to cancel a scheduled interview after the sign-up period, you must contact Career Services in person or by phone ASAP. Excessive cancellations will result in suspension and possible termination of your On-Campus Interview privileges.
