How On-Campus Recruiting Works in Handshake

When you apply for an opportunity that involves an on-campus interview you will be notified through Handshake when the employer makes their selections (e.g. primary, alternate, declined).

If selected as a primary or alternate candidate, you will have an opportunity to sign up for an interview slot at the designated time mentioned in the notification.  After you apply, a timeline is available in the posting’s left margin.  All interview slots are available on a first-come first-serve basis.  You will not be able to schedule an interview until you have completed the Student Code of Conduct Survey.

The Code of Conduct in Handshake

The Student Code of Conduct survey establishes the guidelines by which you may access and apply to opportunities posted in Handshake.  In order to schedule an on-campus interview, you are required to complete the Student Code of Conduct.  Please complete this survey as soon as possible, so that you are not delayed or blocked from scheduling an interview.  To take the short survey, go to Handshake and after logging in, click Career Center -> Surveys.
