ON-CAMPUS INTERVIEWS START IN OCTOBER FOR STUDENT JOB HUNTERS

MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University students preparing to graduate or seek an internship can get a head start on their search by participating in on-campus interviews.

Dottie Evans, associate director of K-State career and employment services, calls on-campus interviews one of the best-kept secrets on campus.

Each fall employers seeking to hire K-State students schedule and conduct interviews in Holtz Hall, the home of career and employment services. This fall on-campus interviews begin Monday, Oct. 4, and continue daily through mid-November. Application deadlines for interviews generally occur two to three weeks in advance.

While searching for a job may seem like a task to put off until classes slow down or work schedules are less hectic, students should be seeking jobs far in advance of graduation, Evans said. Writing a resume and preparing for an interview take time, but are well worth the effort. With on-campus interviews, students can schedule online and simply walk to Holtz Hall for their interviews instead of making arrangements to miss class and travel to an interview in a city that is a drive or flight away.

Employers offering on-campus interviews can be found by visiting http://www.k-state.edu/ces. Students can access information about employers and submit their resumes online by logging into "My CES Account." Some employers have open interview sign-ups, while others require resume submission and then will offer interviews to qualified candidates. Once offered an interview, students are able to sign up for a time by again accessing "My CES Account."

Taking a little extra time to be prepared and using the services offered on campus gives K-State students an edge over their job competition and is likely to pay off in the future, Evans said.
