Many employers are invited to campus to interview for full-time, permanent positions. We encourage seniors and eligible alumni to take full advantage of on-campus interviewing opportunities. The On-Campus Recruiting Program at Westminster College takes place throughout the academic year.
On-campus interviews are open to all Westminster College seniors and alumni. Alumni may interview if the employer has indicated interest and they meet the qualifications specified.
Interview Sign-Up Procedures
Westminster College offers employers two options for on-campus interviews: Pre-Select and Open.
- The Pre-Select Interview: Employer reviews candidates' resumes before coming to campus. Students and alumni must submit a resume for the employer's consideration prior to the resume deadline. Candidates selected for an interview will be notified by the Career Center and scheduled for an interview.
- The Open Interview: Employer interviews every candidate who submits a resume and meets the qualifications specified. Candidates must submit a resume to the Career Center prior to the deadline.
Employer information is available in the Career Center Library regarding most on-campus recruiters. It is highly recommended that you review the employer's literature and web page (if available) so that you can ask knowledgeable and specific questions during the interview.
Interview Day Procedures
Dress in appropriate business attire. A conservative suit is best. Plan to arrive 15 minutes before your interview, to allow time to complete any required paperwork. After the interview, be sure to send a thank you letter to the recruiter (within 24 hours, if possible).
A cancellation / no show policy is necessary to maintain the credibility of Westminster College's on-campus recruiting program. A high level of professional responsibility is expected of you in the working world, and is required in the On-Campus Recruiting program.
Once you have submitted your resume to the Career Center, you are required to follow through with the recruiting process and keep your scheduled interview.
Should an unforeseen circumstance arise (i.e. family emergency or serious illness) and you are unable to keep your interview appointment, you must contact the Career Center immediately. A letter of apology must be sent to the recruiter who has been inconvenienced by your absence, and a copy sent to the Director of the Career Center within 72 hours of the date of the missed interview.
Failure to comply will result in loss of on-campus recruiting privileges.
