Interviews and Informational Sessions
Employers may schedule interview dates in advance by requesting schedules through Handshake by selecting "Interviews" and "Request Interview Schedule."
To minimize communication errors, scheduling and communication with students happens automatically through the system. Some scheduling models require longer time periods (e.g. weeks) to ensure employers and students enough time to review information and make their selections to fill a schedule.
Informational meetings are an excellent way to cover basic information about your company the night before your interview schedule. Coordinating your schedule through Career Services ensures that your schedule will be communicated automatically using our electronic systems around campus.
If you wish to hold an informational meeting while you are on campus, please use Handshake to select "Event" and "Request Event."
