On-Campus Recruiting Guide
IUJ now welcomes recruiters to our campus to meet internship and employment candidates in Fall Term (mid October through late November). IUJ’s main recruiting season is mid January through late February each year.
On Campus Recruiting Itinerary
Companies and any recruiters come to IUJ campus and often give a 45 minute overview of their company and recruiting needs. Interviews (pre-screening, selection, group or one-on-one interviews) for internships and employment positions take place in the afternoon. Some companies like to meeet candidates informally at a “Drop By Time” after the more formal interviews.
CC&S helps by assisting with candidate selection, arranging itineraries, providing presentation facilities, setting up interview rooms to meet the interview style preferred, and making any arrangement our company visitors might need. Please let us know. if you would like to attend, and your preferred dates.
We do welcome recruiters through our Spring Term if the above time periods are not possible. However, many candidates finalize their career and internship plans before this time. Therefore, we encourage participation early on!
