On-campus Interviews: October 5, 2016
The On-Campus Interviews provide you the opportunity to maximize your time by meeting indvidually with many students during your visit to campus. Some employers interview well over 10-15 students at these interviews. Conference style interview space is provided: each large interview room will have 8-12 tables where different employers will conduct interviews in the same space, with sufficient space between the tables. While a private space is not available at this time, this layout works very efficiently to allow our students and employers greatest access to each other during a short period of time. Please request your on-campus interviews when you register online.
