On-Campus Recruiting

Center for Career Development, located in Duncan Student Center, coordinates all on-campus recruiting for undergraduate & graduate students. Career Development utilizes a career services management system – Handshake to facilitate our online system.

Manage your on-campus recruiting efforts online – from schedule request and adding position(s), to candidate selection and viewing your final interview schedules. Through Handshake, students have access to your online recruiting information twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

Virtual & Phone Interviews
Face-to-face interviews provide the optimal experience to meet our students.  We also offer virtual (Zoom preferred) and phone interviews as alternate processes for the convenience of recruiters.  The Handshake system can still be utilized with these types of interviews.  

Overview of a Typical Recruiting Day

Interviews are typically from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m EST with at least an hour blocked for lunch. Contact Career Development if space is needed beyond these hours.  The interviews are held in the Center for Career Development on the fifth floor of Duncan Student Center unless you have made other arrangements with us. Interview packets will be printed and given to you upon arrival unless you have notified us that your team has chosen to print these.
