On-Campus Recruiting

On-campus recruiting provides students with the opportunity to visit one-on-one with employers seeking full-time or internship candidates. Employers are able to schedule informational tables, presentations or campus interviews during the fall and spring academic semesters.

How Can I Participate in an On-Campus Interview?

Campus interviews are scheduled in Handshake, which is accessible to currently registered students at UW-Green Bay. To sign up for or request an interview time slot:
  • Update your profile and upload a current resume in Handshake. Without a resume, you will not be able to request or schedule an interview.
  • On the Handshake top toolbar, select "Jobs" then "On-Campus Interviews" to view current interview schedules, timelines and positions.
  • Submit your resume for those positions in which you have an interest.
  • For open interview schedules, you will be able to select an interview time once your resume is submitted. For pre-select schedules, the employer will collect and review student resumes. They will make interview decisions and you will be notified by e-mail if you are accepted as an interview candidate, if you are an alternate, or if you are not accepted for an interview. Accepted and alternate candidates will then be able to schedule their interview time slots in Handshake.
  • Note your scheduled interview time! Failure to show for a scheduled interview may result in revocation of campus recruiting privileges. Note the On-Campus Recruitment Policies below.
  • Prepare for your interview: Review the organization's website/literature, attend an "Interviewing Like a Professional" workshop, review the "Interviewing Like a Professional" guide and list of potential interview questions, or visit with a staff member in Career Services to ask questions or participate in a practice/mock interview.
  • If you have questions, please contact Career Services at (920) 465-2163.

On-Campus Recruitment & Resume Referral Policies

Career Services at the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay adheres to the Principles for Professional Practice as outlined by NACE, the National Association of Colleges and Employers. By submitting a profile in Handshake or by submitting a resume to an employer for an on-campus interview schedule, you agree to abide by these policies:
  1. Students and alumni assume total responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of the information contained in their Handshake profile and on their resume. Career Services staff reserves the right to not forward a resume to an organization if information in Handshake contradicts or is in conflict with the required qualifications of the position.
  2. Demographic information (i.e. sex, age, ethnic background, disability, etc.) requested in Handshake is not forwarded to an employer. This information is only used for statistical purposes internally in Career Services.
  3. The campus ID number is required for Handshake to generate a unique record for an individual student. This number is never shared with an employer.
  4. Career Services will release contact information (email, phone) over the phone to employers if they are unable to contact an individual with the information listed on the resume that they received.
  5. Candidates must meet qualifications as stated by the employer to be eligible for an on-campus interview or for a resume to be forwarded through a resume referral.
  6. Candidates are advised to not abuse the on-campus recruitment or the resume referral program. Examples of abuse include failure to show for an on-campus interview, to provide less than 24-hours advance notice when canceling an on-campus interview, or failure to show professional courtesy to an employer. Abuse will be addressed by Career Services staff and privileges to participate in recruitment programs may be revoked.
  7. If Career Services is notified by an employer of unethical or inappropriate behavior of a candidate during an interview, Career Services staff reserves the right to address the issue with the student or alumnus. If the behavior is severe, the student may be referred to the campus judicial process. Interview and referral privileges may be removed.
  8. Any candidate not meeting the qualifications for an on-campus interview may request to have the name of the contact person for that organization and can personally connect with them to request consideration and a personal interview. (Ex: A student is not accepted for a pre-select interview schedule.)
  9. The University does not accept responsibility for the actions of any on-campus or off-campus employers during interviews. Students and alumni are encouraged to bring to the attention of Career Services staff any unethical, unprofessional or inappropriate behavior of an interviewer or host organization. The situation will be explored and the issue addressed with the organization in question.
  10. Students and alumni must be currently registered with Career Services and any appropriate fees paid in order to participate in on-campus recruitment.
  11. The office staff will critique a resume when it is uploaded to Handshake for the first time. It is the individual student's responsibility to make appropriate changes or to request that future editions of the resume be critiqued by Career Services staff.
  12. It is an individual's responsibility to edit their Handshake profile if they are not interested in having their resume viewed by employers or if they have become employed and are no longer seeking a position. The student/alumnus can do so by logging into Handshake and changing their profile status to Private. At that point, employers will not be able to view their profile or resume.

Employers are asked to complete an evaluation form for each interview candidate, however, they are not obligated to do so. If you would like to review the ratings and comments employers have provided, please contact Career Services at (920) 465-2163 to set up an appointment with one of our staff members.
