On-campus Interviews

On-campus interviews provide employers the opportunity to connect to a highly qualified and diverse student population. By recruiting on-campus, you will forge links to our students and with our faculty and administrators, increasing your employer's image and visibility. On-campus interviews can be scheduled on the Pew Grand Rapids Campus in designated interview rooms, or in various locations on the Allendale Campus.

Scheduling On-campus Interviews

  • Log in at gvsu.joinhandshake.com. If this is your first time using Handshake, you will need to create an account first. For additional information, please read Getting Started with Handshake: Employers
  • Once logged in, click on Request Interview from the main dashboard.
  • Select GVSU as your school.
  • Select preferred interview date(s) and time(s) and the number of rooms you require.
  • Select your preferred schedule type (see below) and your schedule timeslot template.
  • Select an existing job or create a new job you want to interview for. Please note, you can attach a job at a later time to an existing interview schedule. However, your schedule won't go "live" to students until you attach a job. 
  • Review your information and submit your request.

Scheduling Options

There are many ways to set up your on-campus interviewing schedule.

  • Open Schedule – An open schedule allows any applicant that meets your screening criteria to submit their resume and sign up for an interview time.
  • Preselect Schedule – A preselect schedule allows you to set candidate screening criteria, review resumes and "invite" candidates you select to an interview. Applicants then select their available times to interview.
  • Preselect Continuous - Preselect continuous allows you to review interview requests and make interview decisions on an ongoing basis. Students can sign up as soon as an interview decision has been made for their interview request.
  • Rooms Only - Use rooms only to have us reserve interview rooms. We provide the room to interview and you take care of the rest. This is great option for holding interviews in a short time frame.

Additional Resources

Be sure to book your dates early, as this service is very popular. Once your request has been made, we will work to ensure your request is fulfilled and contact you with any additional information. We look forward to working with you to make your on-campus interviews a success!
