Register for On-campus Recruiting

Register for On-Campus Recruiting Thank you for your interest in recruiting Princeton students and alumni. Career Services offers a range of services to support your recruiting needs and build the brand of your organization on campus. Please carefully review this section before registering for the On-Campus Recruiting Program at Princeton University.

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 and recruiting events such as information sessions, coffee chats, tabling events, tech/scientific talks, career education workshops (e.g., case interviewing), and other visibility events and programs, please log on to Handshake at https://princeton.joinhandshake.com/ and click on “Request Interviews” or “Create an Event”.

If you have never participated in the On-Campus Recruiting Program at Princeton University, please contact recruit@princeton.edu to gain the Handshake access to request interview schedule and event registrations.

Existing recruiting partners, please make sure that you do not have any outstanding invoices. Employers with outstanding balances will not have access to request on-campus interviews and recruiting events and programs until payment is made.

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 21, 2017.) If you register for On-Campus Recruiting at a later time, you will receive your initial confirmation of dates after 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 Handshake. If you are a new employer and would like to post job or internship opportunities, please register for a Handshake.

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 office or other campus buildings. Coffee chats usually take place in Career Services or Frist Campus Center, and tabling events are assigned at Frist Campus Center.

Please see our policies for information on canceling room reservations.

Step 4: Post Your Open Positions

In July, you will receive an email with instructions to post your positions on Handshake for the upcoming academic year. Positions for on-campus interviews must be posted in Handshake at least one month prior to interview dates

Positions posted in Handshake can be open in the system up to 3 months. Full-time and internship positions posted for on-campus interviews cannot be reposted for at least one month after the interview date.

Step 5: Receive Invoice

Prior to your on-campus visit, you will receive an invoice within five business days after your interview and event confirmations, indicating the payment terms and timeframe.
