On-Campus Recruiting

You can meet with employers interested in hiring TU students through our convenient On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) program, which include employer information sessions, employer information tables and on-campus interviews for internships and full-time jobs.

On-Campus Interviews

Interview conveniently on campus with employers interested in hiring TU students for job and internship opportunities. Competition for interview slots is limited to just TU students. To participate, follow the steps below.

Step 1: Apply

To arrange a campus interview, you must apply through Handshake before the specified application deadline. Some employers may ask you to apply through both Handshake and their websites. In such a situation, job descriptions in Handshake will provide the instructions.
After submitting the required materials (usually a cover letter and resume), the employer will review your application and decide whether or not they would like to schedule an interview.

Step 2: Monitor Your Application

You will be able to monitor the status of any positions you apply for through Handshake. Employers use the system to post and manage job openings. Keep an eye on your application. Once the employer has reviewed it, you will see one of the following statuses next to the position:

  • Accepted: The employer has accepted your application for an interview
  • Alternate: The employer has accepted you as an alternate candidate
  • Declined: The employer has declined your application for an interview

If you are “Accepted” or “Alternate,” you will receive a notification about when and how to schedule your interview through Handshake. Note that being an alternate does not guarantee an interview slot.

Step 3: Prepare for Your Interview

Interviews are usually 30 minutes, but this varies by employer and position. If you advance to the interview stage, the interview tips and strategies in this section can help you get ready. Note that it is your responsibility to fully review our on-campus recruiting policies.

Employer Information Sessions

Meet face-to-face with hiring organizations for an overview of their organizations and employment and/or internship opportunities. Often employers will also share tips on their application and interview processes. Take advantage of these opportunities to evaluate a potential employer and network. Come to information sessions prepared to make a great first impression by researching the organization, dressing professionally, and bringing your polished resume. View and RSVP for scheduled employer information sessions in Handshake under the “Events” tab.

Employer Information Tables

Meet informally with employers interested in hiring TU students. Like all recruitment events, you’ll want to make a great first impression by researching the organization and bringing your polished resume.
