Guidelines for On-Campus Interviewing
The Calling and Career Office provides companies and organizations opportunities to interview students on the Taylor University campus. The guidelines for campus interviewing are designed for the convenience of recruiters. The Calling and Career Office encourages interviewing on campus and requests that companies and organizations adhere to the following guidelines:
Scheduling Interview Dates
Representatives from interested companies and organizations can fill out the On-Campus Recruiting Form to start the process for reserving a date to recruit on campus. Once a date is set, confirmation will be sent by the Calling and Career Office. The interview dates will then be advertised on campus and appointments accepted.
Schedule Interview Dates at Least One Month in Advance
Due to the large number of organizations and the limited number of days and space available, it is important that reservations be made as soon as possible. Appointments scheduled in advance allow the career development center adequate time to effectively promote the interviews. This ensures campus interviewing is productive for the employer and the candidates.
Complete Job Descriptions
A complete description of the available position(s) as well as company information should be sent to the Calling and Career Office. Descriptions may be sent by fax, mail or e-mail at the time the reservation is made.
Organizations are responsible for the evaluation of the candidates. If requested in advance, resumes can be sent to the company or organization for review prior to the interview as the recruiter's time allows. In order to avoid scheduling interviews with under-qualified candidates, the job description should include a complete list of the necessary qualifications. The Calling and Career Office will screen resumes prior to interviews and will allow any qualified candidate an interview.
Canceling or Rescheduling
To cancel or reschedule interview dates, notify the Calling and Careert Office as soon as possible. The Calling and Career Office will notify those who have scheduled interviews.
Direct Contact with Candidates
Companies and organizations may contact the candidates directly after the initial interview or contact the candidates indirectly through the Calling and Career Office.
Companies Must be Equal Opportunity Employers
Companies must not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, disability, status as a veteran or other characteristics protected by law.
