Employers are encouraged to consult with their Recruiting Manager concerning effective strategies for ensuring quality interview schedules.

A final decision on the format of your schedules must be made when you submit your Interview Schedule Request. Last minute changes jeopardize your chances of reaching appropriate candidates. To ensure that we continue to meet the needs of the students and prospective employers, we ask that you contact our office immediately for changes in your interview schedule.
- Preselect SchedulesFor this type of schedule, employers indicate specific screening criteria for the types of applicants they would like to interview. Only applicants meeting these criteria are able to submit a résumé for this opportunity. The employer then reviews the résumés that have been submitted for their schedule and chooses who they would like to interview. The chosen applicants are then able to sign-up for a time-slot. Preselect to Continuous SchedulesThe employer will be able to continue selecting students to interview even after the preselect due date.Open SchedulesFor this type of schedule, employers indicate the preferred set of qualifications they are seeking. Qualified students are then able to sign-up for available times on a first-come, first-served basis. This type of schedule is not typically recommended.Room Only Schedules
For this type of schedule, the employer collects résumés via a Bauer Career Gateway job posting, résumé search/résumé referral or Career Fair or other event and then contacts the students in which they have an interest. The procedure to secure an interview room should then be followed. The employer then contacts students to establish the interview schedule and provides a copy to the Career Center staff once the schedule has been finalized. If you have non-business majors on your schedule, please see ‘Interview Eligibility‘.
If, at the time of posting, you do not plan to interview students on campus, then we recommend the Job Posting option. This option allows you to post your opportunity and for the students to express an interest. Résumés of interested students are available online for your review. Interviews with these students are typically conducted at your company site.
If, after you review the résumés from students who have applied for this position, you want to interview these students on campus, you will want to use the Room Only approach.
Checking The Status of Interview Schedule
- Employers may check the status of their interview schedules at any time by utilizing their online Bauer Career Gateway account or by contacting their Recruiting Manager. Unless otherwise requested, interviews are 30 minutes in length with 12/13 interviews per schedule per day. Multiple schedules and multiple interview days are welcome.
Final Interview Schedule
- Your interview schedule is typically available via your Bauer Career Gateway account six days prior to your actual interview date. Because of the complexity of creating schedules we adhere stringently to these deadlines.Please review your schedule carefully and contact your Recruiting Manager with any questions or concerns. It is important you do not make any changes to interview times or candidates without first notifying your Recruiting Manager as this can create scheduling conflicts.
