Interview on Campus

The Career & Professional Development Center offers an array of services to help employers achieve their recruitment goals at the University of Utah. Our recruiting coordinator, Sara Jarman, serves as a point of contact for your on-campus recruitment visit. Recruitment opportunities are designed to help our current students and recent alumni find full-time and internship positions within organizations. To ensure this goal is achieved, company recruitment activities must align with the Career & Professional Development CenterRecruitment Policies.

A successful on-campus recruiting process takes four to six weeks from start to finish and includes the following:

  • Schedule on-campus recruitment interview date
  • Post position(s) and set selection criteria (major, degree level, graduation dates, work authorization, etc.)
  • Collect resumes online
  • Select and invite candidates to interview
  • Candidates schedule interview time

Types of On-Campus Interviewing

  • Preselect Schedule
    • This type of schedule works best for positions that require specific majors, such as accounting and engineering. Interview schedules are posted online and typically take five weeks from posting to interviewing.
      • Weeks 1-3: We promote your visit to students who meet the requirements in the job descriptions you provided and encourage them to submit their resume for your consideration.
      • Week 4: You review the resumes and determine which students best meet your requirements.
      • Week 5: Students receive notification that they have been accepted and they will go online to schedule an interview
  • Open Schedule
    • This type of schedule works best for positions with a broader spectrum of majors such as management, customer services, and sales. Interview schedules are posted online and typically take four weeks from posting to interviewing.
      • Weeks 1-4: We promote your visit to students who meet the requirements in the job descriptions you provided and encourage them to submit a resume and sign up for an interview
  •  Room reservation only
    • An interview room is reserved for your use all day. You build and manage the interview schedule. We require that you submit your interview schedule to our recruiting coordinator, Sara Jarman, at least 2 business days prior to your interview date.

Please Note: When students request an interview through UCareerPath, the database compares student qualifications against your requirements. If they do not match, students cannot sign-up.
