On-campus interviews are a convenient way to interview pre-screened UMBC students. Using Handshake, you can request a schedule, post your position(s), collect resumes, pre-screen candidates, and view your schedule. The Career Center handles all the logistics of this free recruitment service, including arrangements for a private interview room at the Center.
Access to Handshake is free of charge. If you have questions about scheduling on-campus interviews, please contact Anna Pittinger, Recruitment Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unable to come to campus to conduct interviews? Do you prefer to interview candidates virtually? We are here to assist you with coordinating remote interview schedules.
One of the key factors to a student having a successful remote interview is holding it in a distraction-free space where the interviewer is able to clearly see and hear the student. The Career Center’s interview rooms are available for UMBC students to reserve for remote interviews. If you are scheduling a remote/virtual interview with a UMBC student, please encourage them to request an interview room.
