On Campus Interviewing

Build your presence on campus? Possible. On campus interviewing is one of the options. Our online Bullseye powered by Handshake system makes pre-selection of candidates easy for you.

Facilities

Our private interview rooms include Wi-Fi access and a landline phone. Enjoy our complimentary lunch or snack and (upon request) lunch with a Career Services staff & available faculty member.

From the Bullseye powered by Handshake dashboard, click on the Interviews tab, followed by the Request Interview Schedule tab in the top right hand corner to complete the request form.  Once the request form has been submitted, our On Campus Interviewing Coordinator will contact you to confirm a date, review details, and answer any questions.

Determine Your OCI Schedule Model

Career Services offers four types of interview scheduling model options: Pre-Selection, Pre-Selection with Alternates, Open Schedules, and Room-Only Reservations.  Generally, schedules run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (approximately 15, thirty-minute interviews per day).  You can choose breaks and lunch times. We are happy to meet with representatives during lunch as well as arrange for a faculty member to join us upon request.

Pre-Selection Interview Schedules

The majority of employers prefer to pre-select candidates for their interview schedules. Once we receive your completed On Campus Interviewing Schedule request and confirm your interview date, we will advertise your visit to a targeted population of potential students/alumni applicants. 

Students/alumni who wish to be considered for an interview will submit their resumes and other application documents online in Bullseye powered by Handshake.

You will then review the applicants' resumes/documents in the on campus interviewing section of your account in Bullseye powered by Handshake and select the candidates you wish to interview. These candidates will be automatically notified to sign up for an interview appointment. Your final schedule will be emailed to you one business day in advance of your visit to campus.

Pre-Selection with Alternates

This method works in a similar manner as the Pre-Selection Interview Schedules described above; however, you may opt to select alternate candidates. (This can be particularly useful in ensuring a filled schedule.) Alternate candidates have an opportunity to sign up for an interview several days after your pre-selected candidates have had a chance to sign up.

Open Interview Schedules

With this method, once we receive your On Campus Interviewing Schedule request and confirm your interview date, we will advertise your visit and allow any interested UB student or graduate to sign up directly for an interview time for the day of your visit. 

Room-Only Reservations

If you have previously identified UB candidates and need a private room to conduct interviews, our office can provide you with interviewing space. Please contact the On Campus Interviewing Coordinator at 716.645.2231 to reserve space in advance of your visit.

On Campus Interviewing (Pre-Select Schedule Type)

Reserve Your Preferred Interview Date(s) in Bullseye powered by Handshake (New users must first create an account) by Requesting Interview Schedule under Interviews in the left hand navigation bar. Please complete all four (4) sections of the form.
