Employers are invited to visit the campus to recruit for full-time, summer, and internship positions. The following information 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 begins 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 parking permit will be enclosed with your confirmation letter. Please complete and return the form to the Career Center immediately. 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 select the ones 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 schedule.
Vacant interview times may be filled with student from your alternate list. You may wish to request that the Recruiting Coordinator assist you in reaching these students for appointments.
Upon arrival on campus on the day of the interviews, you will check in at the Career Center (Kenny Hall 337) where you will receive an interview schedule as well as a resume and an unoffcial transcript for each candidate who scheduled an interview.
Lunch is scheduled from 12:00-1:30 p.m. Luncheon meetings with faculty can be arranged if desired. Please verify arrangements when you arrive.
Students will be waiting in the lobby area. Please call their names when you are ready to interview them. If any problems arise please check with the Recruiting Coordinator.
Please notify us if the student fails to appear for a scheduled interview. We will contact the student concerning the appropriate action.
Official transcript release forms are located 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. A Job Offer/ Salary Survey Form is available online.
Employers are encouraged to provide the Career Center library with company literature. It is recommended that each company provide a comprehensive binder for the library as well as multiple copies of brochures, job descriptions, and application forms (if required) to be distributed to students who will be interviewing. If your company has a recruiting video, it is recommended that the Career Center be provided with a copy for students to view prior to the interview.
