Interview Scheduling/Format OptionsWVU utilizes Handshake to coordinate and manage on-campus recruiting schedules. There are different options as to how candidates will be selected and sign-up for interview times when requesting an on-campus interview schedule. Options include:
- Room Reservation Only – The employer will be responsible for all scheduling arrangements and is only reserving space on campus to conduct interviews.
- Preselect – Candidates will submit their resumes online through Handshake for review. Only selected candidates labeled as ‘invited’ will be able to sign-up for an interview time. The maximum number of preselected candidates is based on the number of time slots available.
- Preselect to Alternate – This model follows the same process as #2, except alternates will also be selected. There is no set minimum or maximum as to the number of alternates selected; this is solely based on the employer’s discretion. Alternates will only be able to signup for an interview time if invited candidates either decline or fail to select a time slot.
- Preselect to Open – This model follows the same process as #2, however after a certain time period, set at the employer’s discretion, any student is able to sign-up for remaining time slots.
- Preselect to Alternate to Open – An employer will choose preselected candidates based on submitted resumes as well as alternates. If any interview times are still available after a certain time period, the remaining slots are open to any student.
- Open – Any student may sign-up for an interview time slot. Employers will NOT be able to review resumes prior to the student signing up for an interview time.
