Information Sessions And On Campus Interviews

The FIU Career and Talent Development Department hosts multiple information sessions every semester, on the Modesto A. Maidique Campus, Biscayne Bay Campus and at the Engineering Center. This allows recruiters from a variety of industries to talk about their organization on campus, discuss their hiring needs, and what kinds of positions and employees they will be looking for.

Some information sessions are hosted in a traditional format while other can be more casual. While requirements for attire may not always be shared by the employer, we strongly suggest students and alumni to dress professionally at information sessions to make a strong first impression. To find out if a company will be hosting an information session, please check your Handshake account under the “Events” tab. This is an excellent opportunity for students and alumni to network with a prospective employer, as well as to get an idea of what different companies and organizations are seeking in future employees.

Employers

Information Sessions provide employers with an opportunity to educate our students and alumni about their organization’s work environment, culture, interview process, and career paths. For employers looking to hold an information session at Florida International University, please register for an Information Session on your Handshake account, or contact the Employer Relations team at (305) 348-2423.

On Campus Interviews

Each semester, employers come to campus to interview FIU students and alumni for full-time and internship positions. 

Students and alumni must personally contact Career and Talent Develpment at least two (2) business days before the scheduled interview to cancel their interview. Failure to show up for an interview or failure to comply with the interview cancellation policy will result in immediate loss of interviewing privileges and resume referrals for one month. To request reinstatement of privileges, students and alumni must call our front desk at (305) 348-2423 to make an appointment with the Assistant Director for On Campus Recruitment. Second offenders will result in immediate loss of interviewing privileges and resume referrals for the remainder of the semester.

Employers

On campus interviews are arranged for employers looking to fill full-time career opportunities as well as internships. This is a convenient option for employers to conduct all of their interviews in one day at FIU. Scheduling and managing on campus interviews is easy through Handshake, our online recruitment software. FIU’s on campus recruitment seasons typically occurs late September through mid-November and late January through early March. Summer schedules are arranged upon request.

Setting Up Your Campus Interview Dates

To choose from the widest range of dates available, we encourage you to make arrangements for your visit(s) for the upcoming academic year during the summer. Please log into your Handshake account to submit an on campus interview request. If you do not have a Handshake account, you can create one within a few minutes.

Please contact Carmen Carter, Assistant Director for On Campus Recruitment, for additional information regarding on campus interviews. We also encourage you to call her at (305) 348-2423 to confirm receipt of your registration form or to handle questions regarding your campus recruitment visit.

Scheduling Tailored to Your Needs

A typical schedule consists of 13 thirty-minute interviews that begin at 9 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. If you need to arrange your schedule in a manner that is different from the standard, we will tailor a schedule for you to meet those needs. We will work to accommodate you and make your visit as successful as possible!

Types of Schedules Available

Open Schedule

In an open schedule, candidates see your position on Handshake and sign up on a “first come, first serve” basis. Handshake ensures that only those candidates that meet your requirements are able to submit a resume and immediately select an interview time.

Pre-Select Schedule

With a pre-select schedule, candidates see your position on Handshake and submit their resumes for consideration by a pre-determined deadline. Employers will then be able to review and “invite” those candidates they would like to learn more about to an interview. With this type of schedule, employers only interview those students that they have determined are the best candidates for their positions.

Room Reservation Only

This interview schedule allows employers to manage their own schedule. With this option, FIU Career and Talent Development simply provides a room for the interviews to take place.
