1. Why should I use Hire@TU for on-campus recruiting?
Setting up an interview schedule through Hire@TU maximizes the number of qualified students that can apply offering a free service that allows you to conveniently interview Towson University students.
Hire@TU offers employers the ability to pre-select candidates ensuring that only qualified candidates are interviewed.
Students who match your criteria will have access to your position and can submit their resume through Hire@TU to be considered for an interview.
The Career Center will handle all the logistics from arranging for a private interview room(s) to scheduling interview timeslots for your pre-selected candidates based on your schedule request.
2. How do I obtain a Hire@TU account?
To create a Hire@TU account, please visit the employer login page. Complete the required fields, and create a username and password. You will need your username and password to access your account in the future. If you have forgotten your password, please see the Employer Hire@TU FAQs.
3. How do I create a schedule request?
Post or update your position on Hire@TU before you request an interview schedule.
Login to Hire@TU, click Schedules, then click New Schedule Request on the menu bar.
Scroll to Interview Request Preferences and fill out the required fields including the job title and ID number.
For schedule type, choose one of the options:
In-Person/On-Campus Schedule Options:
Open – Involves a system screening process ONLY. Students who meet the requirements, based on your criteria, can sign up for an interview timeslot.
Preselect – Allows you to review the applications (resumes) prior to making decisions based on your criteria.
Resume Collection – Positions are advertised and qualified students submit their application materials via Hire@TU. You can then access and review resumes submitted and schedule interviews at your site or make arrangements to interview on campus.
Rooms Only – Allows you to create your interview schedule. This option is useful if you already have candidates or would like to schedule candidates at an event such as an information session or career fair.
Virtual Interviewing Options:
Phone Interview – Similar to an in-person on-campus schedule. Candidates are pre-selected and scheduled for specific times throughout the interview day. Recruiters can then call a direct line into our interview rooms to phone interview each candidate as the schedule dictates.
Webcam (Skype™) Interviews – The Career Center can also assist you with setting up video or online interviews. The most cost-effective option is through Skype, where students can utilize a computer in our interview rooms to connect online with an employer via video feed.
Once the Career Center sets up your schedule, students can apply online and send resumes through Hire@TU.
4. How is a schedule set up once I post my position?
The Career Center will attach a pre-select schedule to your position based on your schedule preferences for date, time and specific timeslots.
Enter three preferable interview dates including the number of rooms you require based on the number of recruiters who will conduct interviews. Choose what timeslots work best for you – a standard schedule begins at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m., allowing you ten, 30-minute timeslots with an hour break for lunch. You can also customize your timeslots request based on your scheduling needs. For more information, contact the Employer Relations Coordinator.
