  1. Interview Time Frame:
    Please indicate if you would like to hold interviews in the morning, afternoon, or full day. Make note of start/end times and any breaks you would like.  Example: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, with a 12:00-1:00 break for lunch.
  2. Number of Interview Schedules:
    Example: 2 schedules = 2 interviews being conducted simultaneously
  3. Interview Length:
    The typical interview length of 30 minutes will be scheduled unless you indicate otherwise.

    Note: If you will be interviewing for more than one job, please indicate if you want separate interview schedules for each job or if the schedules can be intermixed.
  5. Additional application instructions that you would like included in the job listing or interview directions.
    Example: If you require students to complete a questionnaire on your company’s website, include those instructions and the corresponding link.  If you have specific information you want highlighted in applicants’ CVs or cover letters, include that information.
