Interviews/Info Sessions

The CCD is here to help your organization plan a customized fall recruitment and student engagement strategy. Requests can be submitted through Handshake, or you can email to discuss your organization's best option(s).


Interviews and info sessions will be advertised to qualified students through several avenues, including Handshake, e-mails, and faculty endorsements. Organizations should provide detailed information, including marketing fliers and branded email content, to enhance student marketing efforts. 

Types of Interview Schedules

There are three main scenarios employers will this year; however, the CCD is happy to accommodate other scheduling formats that better support organizational needs. 

  • Handshake Exclusive.  Use Handshake to manage applications and schedule interviews.
  • Hybrid.  Use Handshake to manage applications but schedule interviews through another system already being leveraged by the organization (e.g., Yello).
  • External ATS Exclusive. Post positions in Handshake but have students apply through the organization's ATS and manage all interview schedules through a separate platform.
