On campus interviewing is a great strategy for screening candidates or doing first-round interviews in a convenient location for students. It’s also a great way to maximize your time on campus if you are already traveling here for a career fair or other recruiting event. Career Services has access to several interview spaces on campus, all of which are available at no cost. Complimentary wifi access is also provided.
