Each year Career Services coordinates thousands of on-campus interviews. Michigan Tech students have the opportunity to interview with hundreds of companies that travel to campus on a regular basis for recruitment purposes. There will never be an easier opportunity to have an interview and get a job than there is right here on campus.
On-campus interviews are a means for recruiters to screen candidates. These first interviews, while sometimes leading to job offers, normally lead to plant trips or second interviews. Most on-campus interviews last for a half hour and are conducted in various rooms around campus.
Before interviewing with a company, find out everything you can about the company, including product lines, services offered, plant locations, names of executives, financial data, and anything else you can dig up. If the company hosts an informational meeting on campus, make sure to attend and find out everything you can before the interview. This meeting offers you the chance to talk with recruiters.
During the Career Fair, companies may offer you an opportunity for an interview while they are still on campus. These interviews allow you, the student, to make a great first impression and improve your chances of getting a job offer. To allow students to better organize and apply for on campus interviews, the HuskyJOBS system allows quick access to company job offers, giving you the chance to apply for the position before and after the Career Fair. Check out this section for detailed information on how to sign up for on-campus interviews that are available.
