EMPLOYERS INTERVIEWING ON CAMPUS

 

WHAT TYPES OF INTERVIEWS TAKE PLACE ON CAMPUS, AND WHEN?


Employers may schedule interviews on campus for full time and internship positions during the Fall and Spring semesters.

HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?


All current UIC students may apply for on-campus interview positions through UICcareers. UICcareers.com is our on-campus job board - these employers are looking for qualified UIC students.

  1. View the short video on our website "Interviewing On Campus Basics."
  2. Create your UICcareers.com profile if you have not already done so.
    • Use your UIC email address, including @uic.edu, as your user name.
    • Click "forgot password" to have a password sent to your UIC email address.
    • If you already have a profile, make sure it is updated with current academic information.
  3. Have your resume reviewed by a campus career advisor (You may have your resume reviewed by any career office on campus.)
  4. Upload your edited resume to your UICcareers profile ("Documents" tab).
  5. Using the "Jobs" tab, conduct an "Advanced Search" to "Show Me > All Interviews" from the drop-down menu. Begin by applying for an on-campus interview position that is of interest to you. Carefully follow the instructions for each position.
  6. Once ready or selected for an interview, view the short video "InterviewSuite" on InterviewStream and practice interviewing through this virtual tool. Prepare well with interview questions common in specific fields. Ready Prep Interview is a great resource for interview questions. 

  7. Application Process:

    1. Once you have registered, revise your resume based on the suggestions given, and consider having someone look at it again. Your resume must be flawless!
    2. Upload your resume to your UICcareers.com profile, and begin to apply to positions. Carefully follow the instructions for each position.


    HOW DOES THIS FIT IN TO MY JOB SEARCH STRATEGY?


    While some employers may choose to interview students on campus, most will interview students off-campus. Your job search strategy should also include other positions on UICcareers.com, job fairs, networking, and other job search sites. See additional information on our site for more details.
