On-Campus Interviewing

Schedule dates to interview students and alumni during fall and spring semesters.

Win-Win

Generally reserved for full-time, internship and co-op positions, on-campus interviews are a win-win for recruiters and applicants alike. While students and alumni appreciate the close proximity to their homes and their familiarity with campus, recruiters can benefit from the ease in accessibility that this provides to applicants.

Most interviews occur between the end of September and mid-November during the fall semester, and between the end of January and mid-April during the spring.

Recruit for Part-time and Seasonal Jobs

To recruit students for part-time and seasonal jobs, the Career Center will be happy to help you set up an information table at the Russell House Student Union or another key location.
