On-campus Interviews (OCI) bring employers to campus to interview students for internships and full-time job opportunities. Interviews are managed through TigerLink and held in Career Services, 400 Wilder Tower or other campus locations. Career Services offers professional interview rooms at no charge for employers.
Employers can schedule on-campus interviews in the fall between September – November and in the spring between February – April, Tuesdays – Thursdays. Career Services may grant exceptions on a case-by-case basis. Interviews must be scheduled between 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Types of Interview Schedules
UofM students and alumni who meet the position requirements sign up for interviews on a first-come, first-served basis.
Recruiters review submitted resumes prior to the campus visit and select candidates to be interviewed. Preselect candidates then have the first opportunity to sign up for interview times. If you choose alternate candidates, they have the second opportunity to sign up for interview times.
Room Reservation Only Schedules
The Room Reservation Only schedule provides interview space for recruiters who already have resumes of interested candidates they wish to interview. **Recruiters contact students directly and schedule interviews after reserving your interview date. Students and alumni on your schedule must have a TigerLink account.
Please note: Students from other universities are not eligible to interview in our office. Recruiters must provide a copy of the interview schedule at least one business day prior to the interviews. The only exception is for post-career fair on-campus interviews. Recruiters can provide a copy of the schedule with students' names before departing the career fair or the morning of the interviews. Failure to do so may result in cancellation of the on-campus interview.
Length of Interviews
After scheduling your date for either an Open or Preselect Schedule, you can choose how long you would like each interview to last. The most popular is 30-minute interviews. Other options are 45-minute or 60-minute interviews. Interviews must be scheduled between 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
We understand emergencies happen. However, cancellations and no-shows should be the exception. Employers who need to cancel on-campus interviews should notify Career Services immediately to allow time to notify students of the cancellation and if available, provide alternate date(s) to hold the on-campus interviews.
For Room Reservation Only on-campus interviews, employers are solely responsible for notifying students of the cancellation.
No-shows reflect poorly on the employer, Career Services and the University of Memphis. Any employer with scheduled on-campus interviews that does not show will need to meet with the Director of Career Services. In some cases, Career Services will also send a certified letter to the senior HR executive and/or chief executive officer of the organization.
