UL Lafayette Career Services office coordinates on-campus interviewing every fall and spring semester. Employers representing local, state, national, and international companies interview applicants for full-time, intern, and co-op positions. Only UL Lafayette students and alumni who have registered with Career Services for access to the on-campus interviewing program are eligible to participate.
Some employers only recruit in the fall but target both December and May graduates; therefore, we recommend that students and alumni register in August to fully benefit from the program. Also, if you are seeking a co-op or internships for the spring or summer, register early and begin interviewing in the fall. Interviewing for the fall semester begins in September and spring interviewing begins in February.
Once students and alumni have completed the Career Services Online registration and have a resume posted, they can search for companies interviewing on campus and submit resumes to companies online.
Some recruiters require the scheduled students to attend a Presentation/Information Session, which is typically held the evening prior to interviewing. These events are posted in Career Services Online.
There are two types of interview selection processes:
- Open Sign-Up: This process allows students and alumni to sign up through Career Services Online on a “first come/first serve” basis. They can sign up, submit their resume, and schedule an interview time online.
- Pre-Select: If a student or alumni wants to be considered for an interview with a particular company, they can submit their resume online. After a certain sign-up period, they will need to check with Career Services Online to see if they were selected by the company to schedule an interview. Applicants invited to interview then schedule their interview time online.
It is recommended that students and alumni research company web sites and visit the Career Services Center to read available company literature prior to interviewing. You may also visit our Preparing for the Interview page to learn more.
