Attend an Event

For the 2022–23 academic year, the Career Center is organizing our major recruiting events and programs in three Career Readiness Weeks (fall, winter, and spring). Career Readiness Weeks are dedicated to students’ career exploration and career readiness, each with a different theme, and will feature a mix of in-person and virtual workshops, panel discussions, networking opportunities, and at least one career fair.

Employers interested in building brand awareness on campus and developing deeper connections with our students are invited to sponsor a Career Readiness Week or a career fair. Contact the Employer Engagement Team with your questions.

Host a Recruiting Event

Hosting a career information session or tabling on campus are excellent ways to connect with potential candidates, showcase your internships and career opportunities, and highlight company culture.

Based on current UO guidelines, we expect to be able to welcome you on campus for information sessions and tabling for fall term. You are also welcome to host your own virtual recruiting events.

Please contact the employer engagement coordinator if you'd like to discuss options for on-campus recruiting activities.

For instructions on how to host a virtual event, please read our Handshake FAQs.


Interview Candidates

Maximize your time, reduce administrative load, and connect with students where they are by conducting your interviews on campus! The Career Center can facilitate on-campus interviews at any time during the academic year in one of our private interview rooms. We will also hold in-person interview days after our Internship and Summer Jobs Fair in February and our Spring Career Fair in April.

Submit your interview requests through Handshake’s Interviews module. Refer to the instructions on how to request an interview schedule.

You can choose to host your own interviews on your platform of choice.
