The following is an overview of the policies that govern student participation in the on-campus recruiting program. It is each participant’s responsibility to understand and agree to comply with these policies. Please become comfortable with these terms as they will be vital to your success in understanding the interview process. If you have any questions or concerns address them at one of the mandatory on-campus recruiting orientation sessions or contact the Career Center directly and speak with one of our staff. We are happy to go over the program and policies with you!
ADVISORY: Before signing up for pre-screen or open interviews and resume referral opportunities, participants must have attended an orientation workshop, established an account with SBU COLLEGE CENTRAL NETWORK and uploaded an employer-ready resume to it, and read and signed the Career Center’s Statement of Intent to Interview Form. Students or alumni must meet the qualifications put forth by the employer and posted in College Central Network.
*Please be advised that employers may require additional application materials (to those listed above) for consideration with their organization. Read the complete posting and application materials for each opportunity in your College Central Network.
THE PRE-SCREEN INTERVIEW PROCESS
Pre-Screen Interviews allow qualifying students and alumni the ability to sign up for a chance to interview with an employer. After the application deadline, the employer reviews all resumes submitted and selects those individuals they wish to interview. You will be notified by email approximately ten days prior to the interview date by Career Services (CS) if you are chosen for an interview by the employer. Those selected will then need to select an interview time slot on a first-come, first-served basis.
THE OPEN INTERVIEW PROCESS
Open Interviews provide qualifying students with an opportunity to sign up for an interview with an employer where the employer does no pre-screening/selecting of applicants. Students first submit all of the required application materials (as outlined by the employer in conjunction with the required documents for the Career Center) for the interview and are then given the opportunity to select an interview time slot AT LEAST 2 DAYS prior to the actual interview date on a first-come, first-served basis. You will be notified via email by Career Center when interview sign-ups are available.
Deadlines & STUDENTS’ RESPONSIBILITIES
Application deadlines are listed on College Central Network, and the 2009-2010 Recruiting Calendar. As the Calendar indicates, the vast majority of full-time and internship deadlines are 2 weeks prior to the employer visit. The exception is “open” interview schedules which have a deadline two days prior to the employer visit date. Any other exceptions will be listed on our web site.
Plan ahead. You must be registered in College Central Network in order to submit application materials for a given deadline. Deadlines are final and strictly enforced.
Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the SBU College Central Network and meeting alldeadlines for on-campus recruiting events.
Students are responsible for frequently reviewing the online calendar as new opportunities are regularly being posted.
Students should submit materials well before the deadlines to avoidencountering technical problems that may arise in submitting resumes and other application materials throughCollege Central Network and via an employer's online process.
Students are responsible for signing up only for interviews which are of interest to you. (If you want to practice interviewing, mock interview appointments are available). Recruiters frown upon using an interview for practice; they need to spend their time with students who are seriously interested in their organizations.
Students are responsible for conducting research on the organizations and opportuntities to determine which they are qualified for.
Be sure to review the organization's literature before your interview. The Career Center or the organization's web site usually has that information.
Before participating in OCI & RR, you are strongly encouraged to have your resume reviewed by a Career Center counselor.
