Company Information Sessions
Many companies conduct on-campus Information Sessions where recruiters provide detailed company information and you have the opportunity to ask questions. Some sessions are open to all students while others are open to selected candidates only. Information sessions are mandatory for all selected students. Most sessions are scheduled from 4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. the day before the scheduled interview. The Information Session schedule is available in Campbell Hall, 4th Floor and on our website.

Critical Dates
Two weeks prior to a scheduled on-campus interview date, resumes are sent to the respective companies. You must submit your resume through CDSlink to each opportunity you are interested in before the cut-off date. The On-Campus Interviewing Schedule, available on our website, lists the cut-off dates for each company. These dates are also available on the 4th Floor of Campbell Hall.

The companies will select whom they wish to interview, and will subsequently inform Career Development Services. Once a company has selected the students to be interviewed, we submit the selections on-line. It is your responsibility to submit your resume to the company through CDSlink and to determine if you have been selected to interview with a company. Each selected student must choose an interview time slot, based upon your class/work schedule. It is your responsibility to check the listings, and to attend all scheduled interviews. Missed interviews will result in ineligibility for further participation.

Prepare for the Interview
It is your responsibility to be well prepared for the interview. We offer a variety of workshops and services that are designed to develop your interviewing skills.
