On Campus Interviews
Employers are invited to visit the campus to recruit for full-time, summer, and internship positions. The following suggestions may be helpful:
Please call at least three weeks in advance to schedule a recruiting date. For pre-selection, please allow four to five weeks. Daily interviews normally begin at 9 a.m., and the last interview begin at 4 p.m. Our standard schedule consists of twelve 30-minute interviews.
Variations can be accommodated if desired. Confirmation of your recruiting date will be mailed. A recruitment form requesting details of your visit and a parking permit will be enclosed with your confirmation letter. Please complete and return the form to the Career Center. If you need information on Work Authorizations, you may refer to the NACE publication, An Employer's Guide to Student Visas. If you are not a member of NACE, the Career Center Recruiting Coordinator can assist you with this information.
Two scheduling options are available: Pre-select and Open.
A pre-select schedule provides an opportunity for employers to review resumes from interested candidates and then to select the candidates to be interviewed. An open schedule permits qualified students to select an interview time on a first-come basis. Employers are requested to call two days in advance to confirm the status of the interview and to allow the Recruiting Coordinator to assist you in contacting these students for appointments. We will contact the student concerning the appropriate action. Official transcript release forms are located in the desk drawer in your interview room. Turn in completed forms before leaving. It will take approximately one to two weeks for the Registrar's Office to forward transcripts. There is no charge for this service.
We would appreciate a report of offers extended to our graduates as well as acceptances of those offers. This will enhance the accuracy of our records. An on-line Job/Offer/Salary Survey Form is provided for you convenience.
Each fall and spring the Career Center sponsors Career/ Recruitment Days. Sophomores, juniors, seniors, graduate students, and alumni in all majors are invited to participate. Teacher Recruitment Day is held each April. Please contact us if you wish to reserve a space for one of these events.
The Career Center maintains a library of employer literature for student use, and we encourage the candidates to become familiar with as much information as possible about the company or organization prior to the interview. We appreciate your providing recruiting brochures, binders, annual reports, product information, posters, and video tapes.
Employers may list job vacancies as needs arise. This service is especially effective when a campus visit is not possible. Jobs are listed via telephone call, FAX, mail, online, or personal visit. The listing is posted online and in the Job Opportunities Binders. Copies are also distributed to the appropriate department heads. If you have any questions, please contact the Career Center at (318) 257-4336 or e-mail us at email@example.com
