Interviewing

Interview timeslots are assigned on Go IRISH on a first come, first serve basis.  An email with notification of the sign-up period is sent to students selected to interview.  Emails can be delayed, however, so check Go IRISH regularly.  Each position shows application dates, interview sign up dates, the interview date and location.

Tips:

  1. Do not schedule interviews during class or exams.  The Career Center will not provide a note excusing you from other commitments.
  2. Interview sign ups freeze typically 48 hours prior to the interview date.  During the sign- up period, students can reschedule or withdraw from the interview without penalty.
  3. Timeslots are limited.  If all timeslots are filled, it is up to the student to monitor the schedule for changes until the freeze date.  Students will not receive an email if a timeslot becomes available.
  4. Students canceling an interview after the freeze date are in violation of the No-Show Policy and will be asked to explain the absence to a career coach.  Failure to do so will result in loss of Go IRISH privileges.  Refer to the No-Show Policy for more information.
  5. Some employers bring greeters to interviews.  Be prepared for this interaction by arriving at the Interview Center dressed appropriately and a few minutes early.  Bring student ID for check-in.
  6. Interviewer business cards are posted on the bulletin board next to the entrance daily.
  7. Many employers hold pre-night events on campus before their interview day. Students will be notified of these events directly by the employer and students should make every effort to attend.
