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 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 all deadlines 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.
