Your Recruiting Information

In the Interviews & Postings section you can manage job postings, add job descriptions, edit/approve interview information, enable and view Resume Drops, add names to Closed Lists, and review interview schedules.

Select: Interviews & Postings from the menu list on the left side of the screen.

You will see the position title, job number, degree (e.g., MBA), and interview date (if applicable). For on-campus interviews, you will be told whether you have confirmed the position, if the closed list has been submitted, the submission deadline, and whether or not the electronic resume drop is turned on for each position.

Resume Drop - You must enable each one of your jobs for the resume drop, in order for students to drop their resumes electronically. Please do this when you confirm your job.

From the list of postings and interviews, select a specific position by clicking on the position's title. If you select an interview for edit/review, you may do the following:

  • Edit/Approve - Make any changes to the interview information (e.g. contact name, add or edit your job description, etc.). After you have verified that all interview information is correct, you can approve it. This means the position is confirmed and the students will be able to bid for the position at the appropriate time in the bidding process.
  • Resume Drop - You may disable/enable the resume drop, or review the resumes of students who have already submitted resumes through the drop. From the 'Actions...' drop-down menu, you can choose to message, bundle the resumes of, or organize students that are currently marked. You can view a single student's cover letter and resume by clicking on the student's name.
  • Closed List - You will see that the Closed List due date is highlighted on this page. You can enter the closed list and alternates. Please rank your alternates in order of preference. After you have made changes to the Closed List, you must either select 'Save Changes' or 'Submit Closed List'. Selecting 'Save Changes' will still allow you to edit the Closed List at a later time, while 'Submit Closed List' will prevent any additional changes.
  • Interview Schedule - Your schedule(s) will be available to view Thursday after 6:00 a.m. the week prior to your interview date. You may want to monitor your schedules as students may drop off the schedule and wait list students are promoted.

If you select a job board posting for edit/review, you may do the following:

  • View Posting - Review the details of the job posting. Click the Expire Posting button to remove the posting from the job board.
  • Edit Posting - Make any changes to the job posting (e.g. contact name, add or edit your job description, etc.).

To add a new job board posting for your company:

Click the Add New Posting button on the Interviews & Postings page.

There are required fields that you need to fill out in order for us to process your job posting. If you fill the position before the time that the posting has expired, please expire the posting manually from the "View Posting" page.
