Company Visits to Campus

Access the schedule on Career Connection to sign up for campus interviews.

To prepare for interviews, use our Interview Packet and our online practice interview program, InterviewStream.

We host a variety of companies each semester who visit campus to conduct job interviews for full-time and internship opportunities.  

To participate in campus interviews, follow these steps:
•  Create an account in Career Connection
•  Upload your resume to your Career Connection account.  It is
   important to use the samples in our resume packet to create your
   resume. 
•  For fall interviews, you should submit your resumes before
   October 11 to meet most deadlines.  Spring interview sign-up
   times begin as early as late January.
•  Go to "Campus Interviews" and choose "Sign-up for interviews I
   qualify for" to bring up the list of interviews.
•  If you think you qualify but the system will not let you access the
   schedule, you should review your account profile to make sure
   you have the correct major, GPA, and graduation information.
•  Submit your resume to each interview schedule that  matches
   your interests.  For pre-select schedules, companies will review
   resumes and notify you to sign-up for an interview time.
•  Interviews are held in 132 Lanier Hall.

Why Interview On Campus?
Campus interviews are a great way to network with a company while also building up your interview experience.  Companies often host an information session or table on-campus.  Updates are always provided on the Career Connection calendar and campus email through "The Loop Newsletter."

How Campus Recruiting Works
The University Career Center actively markets opportunities to visit campus to our database of over 1000 employers.  Because of our smaller campus size, many companies will choose to attend career fairs and networking events rather than schedule campus interview days.  Both campus recruitment opportunities can lead you to locating the job or internship you are seeking. 

Campus interviews are a great way for you to get experience interviewing for jobs.  These are typically a screening interview, so you and the employer have the chance to see if there is a potential match.  For successful candidates, the campus interview will lead to an onsite interview.  As a GC student, you are fortunate to have companies who will visit campus just to meet you.  Alumni and graduate students are also encouraged to sign up for campus interviews.

Guidelines and Consequences for Canceling a Campus Interview
The University Career Center takes great effort to bring recruiters to campus. We want to ensure that the recruiter's visit is worthwhile and help him/her connect with GC students and alumni. When a no-show occurs, it not only shows a bad reflection on the Career Center, but the university as a whole. In addition, no-shows take away time from someone else wanting to interview with the employer. Therefore, it is imperative to cancel your scheduled interview 24 hours prior to your interview time. 
•  If you must cancel an interview, you need to do so at least 24
    hours in advance.
•  If you do not cancel before the 24 hour period, you will be
    considered a no show. 
•  No shows must write a letter of apology to the employer in
    order to participate in campus interviews again.
•  No shows will not be able to access their Career Connection
    account until they have written their apology letter and met
    with a Career Center staff member.
•  The cancellation policy applies to real interview, mock 
    interview, and resume review appointments that you have
    scheduled with a specific employer.
