How to Submit Your Resume and Sign Up for an Interview

Before you submit your resume to an employer, take the time to consider whether or not you truly wish to interview with this employer. By submitting your resume, you are asking to be considered for an interview.

Each interview schedule is either "prescreen" or "open." 

Prescreen schedules are those in which you submit your resume online during the period of "Resume Submission" for consideration by the employer. The employer will then review your qualifications and determine whether or not to invite you to interview. To see if you have been selected to interview, check "Interview Requests" in the "On-Campus Interviewing” section.


"Open" interviews are those in which you may schedule your interview appointment at the same time you submit a resume. You must, however, meet the employer's requirements. Each online position listing indicates whether the schedule is "Prescreen" or "Open" and the dates for resume submission and sign-ups.
