All employers - with the exception of federal government offices - have submitted their selections for interviews and accepted students have signed up for an interview time.

To view your interview schedule review page six of our guide. Be sure to print your schedule and bring it with you!


Even if you do not get the interview you were hoping for, there will be several opportunities to speak to employers outside of the formal interview times. Both Friday and Saturday will feature Table Talk, an open period of time where employers will be available to speak to students on a first-come, first-served basis.

You are encouraged to identify the employers you would like to speak to before Table Talk begins. Keep in mind that many employers may have long lines of students waiting to speak to them. Plan ahead and strategize to maximize your time with all employers.

Do not use this time to conduct an extensive interview. You should have a quick, 30 second introduction and “selling point” about yourself. Most employers want to meet as many students as possible during this time, so be courteous to your fellow students and keep your face time as short as possible.
