Determine Interview Schedule Type
Room Only

A room will be reserved in Handshake but the slots will be managed outside of Handshake. You can select students for this interview schedule but they will not be able to take slots in Handshake. 


All candidates meeting your criteria (ie: academic major, graduation date) set on the job may take slots. The students will be able to take a slot immediately after applying. Students not meeting your criteria can apply but will not be able to take a slot unless you approve them. Submit your request at least one week (three weeks preferred) prior to your on-campus interview date.


Candidates request interviews and you select candidates you wish to interview. Primary and alternate student choices are selected after the application period. Primary candidates are allowed to sign up before alternate candidates. Submit your request at least three weeks prior to your on-campus interview date.


Submit Interview Arrangements
