Next-Day Interviews

Next-Day Interviews are still available in person the day after the Career Fair. Interviewing typically goes on from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Next-day interviews will be held in the Burge Union.

We invite you to take advantage of the convenient opportunity to interview the great students you meet at our career fairs. With Next-Day Interviews, you can create your own interview schedule as students interact with your organization at the Career Fair. Invite the students who interest you to interview the next day, and select a time slot that is mutually agreeable.

We provide tables in a large room setting, free parking and lunch.
