Menu of Options:
  • On-Campus and Virtual Interviews (OCI) – Interview candidates on-site or vistually in the Fall and Spring semesters.  Work with our coordinator to post an opening, set an application deadline, receive a bundle of application materials after the deadline, make candidate selections, and schedule interviews.
  • Resume Collection/Resume Referral – Another option for those who cannot make it to campus—post an opening, set an application deadline, and receive a bundle of application materials after the deadline. Instead of interviewing candidates on our campus, manage your own schedule and interview accordingly. 
Brand your organization
  • Informational Interviews – Offer students the opportunity to meet with you one-on-one or in small groups for an open informational interview "Office Hours" schedule. This is a great way to build your brand on campus.

  • Tabling On-campus – Increase visibility and build your brand on-campus.
