We will work to accommodate you and make your visit as successful as possible!

    Types of schedules available

    Open Schedule

    • In an open schedule, candidates see your position on Handshake and sign up on a “first come, first serve” basis. Handshake ensures that only those candidates that meet your requirements are able to submit a resume and immediately select an interview time.

    Pre-Select Schedule

    • With a pre-select schedule, candidates see your position on Handshake and submit their resumes for consideration by a pre-determined deadline. Employers will then be able to review and invite those candidates they would like to learn more about to an interview. With this type of schedule, employers only interview those students that they have determined are the best candidates for their positions.
