HOW DO I SCHEDULE STUDENT INTERVIEWS AND/OR AN INFORMATION SESSION?

Currently, campus interviews and in-person information sessions can be scheduled through the Career Center in addition to virtual interviewing scheduling assistance and virtual information sessions.  Requests can be made through DiggerNet, or to email recruiting team CLICK HERE.

Student Interviews:

  • Interviews for the week of Career Fair, “Next Day” interviews: We are offering services in-person. If you are interested in this option, you will be asked if you would like to reserve a table for interviewing on days following the in-person Career Fair on the Career Fair registration. There is a cost for this service – see Career Day FAQ for details.
  • Next Day Interviews (in-person)-Employers will still be responsible for scheduling interview times with students between the hours of 8am-5pm (MST). We think this will be a great option!

Society of Women Engineers - Evening with Industry Event

Every spring, SWE hosts Networking Reception, an event held the week of Career Days. It is an opportunity for SWE, Multicultural Engineering Program (MEP) members, and alumnae to network with recruiters from companies in a relaxed setting. This popular event allows for more personal interactions between company representatives, students, and alumnae allowing attendees to make meaningful, substantive connections. The additional interactions SWE and MEP students get with the recruiters help increase their chances of being remembered and scoring an interview for a job or internship. Both recruiters, students, and alumnae alike enjoy the event and find it extremely helpful.

Companies must be registered for Career Day in order to attend.

Date: Monday, January 29, 2024

Time: 5:30-7:00pm

Location: Friedhoff Hall, Green Center 

Cost: $125 per company representative
