On-Campus Interviews

UC hosts employers on campus to interview undergraduate and graduate students from all academic departments for full-time positions. Each employer determines specific qualifications and the application process.

Types of Interview Schedules

  1. Open schedules are first-come, first-served. Eligible students who meet the employer's requirements submit an online resume and sign-up for a specific time slot.
  2. Preselect schedules allow all students that meet the employer's requirements to submit an application and be considered for an on-campus interview. After the employer reviews applications, they will "preselect" students who are invited for an interview.
  3. Other schedules allow employers to fill their own schedules from career fairs or information sessions.
