Register for On-campus Recruiting

Register for On-Campus Recruiting Thank you for your interest in Princeton students and alumni. Career Services can help you post your jobs, as well as schedule on-campus space for your information sessions and interviews. (Please see step #6 for a list of our fees). 

Princeton University is committed to diversity, equity and inclusivity in all hiring and employment practices and to ensuring equitable access to opportunities.

Step 1: Register & Review Policies

Each year, all organizations wishing to recruit on campus must register, regardless of whether you have participated in on-campus recruiting previously. Please review our Recruiting Policies before registering for the On-Campus Recruiting Program.

To register for on-campus interviews, please log on to Handshake at https://princeton.joinhandshake.com/ and click on “Request Interviews”.

To register for information sessions, coffee chats, tabling events, tech/scientific talks, career education workshops (e.g., case interviewing), and other visibility events, please register here.  

Step 2: Receive Confirmation

If you register for on-campus recruiting for the upcoming academic year in April, you will receive an initial confirmation of dates in May. (We will open On-Campus Recruiting registration for 2017-2018 on April 7.) If you register for On-Campus Recruiting at a later time, you will receive your confirmation within three to five business days.

Employers interested in registering for on-campus recruiting, submitting recruitment requests for interviews and information sessions, and posting jobs and internships must do so using the HireTigers system powered by Handshake. If you are a new employer and would like to post job or internship opportunities, please register for a HireTigers account.

Once your registration has been processed you will receive a confirmation of your location, dates and times.

Step 3: Manage Location Logistics

All interviews are held at the Office of Career Services and information sessions are typically held in the Career Services or other campus buildings. 

Please see our policies for information on canceling room reservations.

Step 4: Post Your Open Positions

In July, you will receive an email asking you to post your positions on HireTigers for the upcoming academic year. Complete instructions and the required link will be provided.

Please note that positions must FIRST be posted on HireTigers before we can attach interview schedules.
