Setting Up Your Interview Schedule

Interview schedules are attached to positions by Career Services staff AFTER your job descriptions are posted. The standard, 30-minute schedule will be attached unless you request otherwise. Please email if you need to schedule back-to-back interview blocks for each student, or if you would like to schedule your interviews with different time slots.

Application Deadlines

The application deadline for students to apply is 2 weeks before the on-campus interview.

Selecting Students for Interviews

  • You will have 4 business days to review applications and select students whom you would like to interview.
  • You will need to indicate either "interview," "alternate" or "decline" for each student in the decision field. Please do not leave the field as "undecided." 
  • Students selected for an interview will then receive notification to sign up for an interview time. Students you have designated as "alternate" will be able to sign up 3 days before the interview date.
  • You will be able to see your schedule in Handshake as students sign up, and the schedule should be finalized the day before your interviews.
