Interviewing Program (IP): Students

Each year employers work with the Office of Career Exploration and Success to conduct thousands of interviews during the fall and spring semesters and select candidates for full-time, internship, and part-time opportunities. Employers recruit from a wide variety of RU majors and programs. The Interview Program (IP) is free and easy, provides you with access to some of the top employers in the region and country, and is available exclusively to RU students. These are employers interviewing on your campus, in-person at the Busch Student Center, or virtually for real-life off-campus positions.

More About IP:

How do you apply for an interview?

Career Exploration and Success uses Rutgers Handshake to manage the Interviewing Program. Recruiters review applicants and select candidates based on how well they match the employer's needs. Those selected are invited to interview. To get started, log in to your Handshake account and look for the "Search Listings" tab on the navigation bar. If you are looking for a specific opportunity, use the 'Keyword' box to search by the Job ID number, position title, company name, and more.

What are the upcoming interview deadlines?

We post-interview deadline dates on our events calendar. You can also keep track of potential interviews you qualify for in Handshake.

What do I wear to the interview?

Minimum attire for ALL interviews with employers is business formal (i.e., suit and tie) unless otherwise specified.

Where are the interviews located?

Due to these uncertain times, please note ALL interviews shall be virtual until further notice. Virtual Interview Tips
