On-Campus Recruiting

On-campus recruiting takes place throughout the academic year. Interviews are not scheduled during exams or when school is not in session. The Career Center uses Stags4Hire to coordinate the campus recruiting process. It allows employers to review applicant resumes continuously up to the application deadline and set up the interview schedule.

Employers interested in arranging on-campus interview dates are encouraged to contact Sandra Toth as soon as possible at (203) 254-4000, ext. 2150 or at stoth@fairfield.edu. Interviews are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Employer presentations are typically held at least three weeks before the campus interview date to allow students the opportunity to learn about the organization and the positions they are seeking to fill.
  • Interview preparation sessions are usually scheduled the evening before the recruiting date. These sessions are open to the students who have been selected to interview. Employers contact selected students to invite them.
  • Presentations and information sessions need to be scheduled so room reservations can be made. Since space is limited, reservations are made on a first come, first served basis.
  • The Career Center opens at 8:30 a.m., a half-hour before first interviews. The Career Center's Recruiting Coordinator greets recruiters with the day's schedule(s). Employers are asked to bring copies of the student resumes they have selected for interviewing.
  • Information Packets are presented to employers by the Career Center Recruiting Coordinator. These include student interview feedback forms and a survey about Career Center services.
