INTERVIEWS THE DAY AFTER THE CAREER FAIR – On the day following the Engineering Career Fair, employers may choose to interview candidates they meet at the career fair. You will be notified by the company if you are chosen to interview. Interviews will be held at Lloyd Noble.
INTERVIEWS LATER IN THE FALL SEMESTER:
Many of the employers will return to campus later in the semester to interview for full-time and internship positions in the Career Services office. They will let you know when they will be back to interview and will let you know the last day you can apply. These on-campus interviews will be listed in your HIREsooner account. To apply, activate your HIREsooner page with Career Services, upload a resume, and apply for the interviews you want. HIREsooner will notify you by email if you are selected for an interview. Once you know you have been selected, you will be prompted to go back into your HIREsooner account and sign up for an interview time. You may begin applying for on-campus interviews at the beginning of the Fall semester.
