Then by selecting applicable criteria and clicking on the Search button, you will get a list of schedules for which you may be qualified.

On-Campus Recruiting Policy – In order to participate in on-campus recruiting, students must agree to abide by the policy of unexcused absences, no-shows or cancellations.

Qualified Schedules – A list of schedules in which a student may be qualified for an interview.

Register – Students are encouraged to Register or RSVP their attendance at career events, information sessions, and career fairs. Students who register will automatically receive reminders on their DIGGERecruiting calendar.

Session – A session is a list of interview details and timeslots that are available to the student to sign-up with a specific recruiter. There may be multiple sessions for a schedule posted on DIGGERecruiting.

Schedule – On-campus interview posting information, including the job description, timeline and requirements for students to be able to sign-up.

Schedule ID – A reference number assigned to identify a particular schedule.

Student & Employer Profile – This is the part of your registration where your personal information is located. For students, this includes demographics, skills, and any additional information. For employers, this includes your company and contact information.

Timeline – A series of dates that act as system deadlines for career events or interview sign-up activity.

Waiting List – Once all timeslots are filled on the Interview Schedule, any students who wish to sign-up will instead be asked if they want to be added to the waiting list. If a timeslot becomes available, it will be filled by one of the following methods: (1) the first student on the waiting list will be notified by email, and after a certain amount of time passes if that student hasn't signed up, all students on the waiting list will be sent an email; or (2) all students may be emailed at the same time and the first one that logs in and signs up will fill the open interview timeslot. NOTE: If a significant number of students are on the waiting list, an employer may choose to open another schedule. In this case, all students would be emailed and the schedule will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

2.  Types of Schedules

Open Schedule

An Open Schedule is a schedule in which a student who meets the posted requirements for the position, without having to be accepted by the employer, may sign up for an interview timeslot on a first-come, first-served basis.

Current Sign-up Method:

  1. Sign-up Open – This is the first day students who meet the requirements can sign-up for an interview timeslot. 
  2. Sign-up Closed – This is the last day students can sign-up for an interview timeslot. 

Preselect Schedule

A Preselect Schedule involves the employer screening the student resumes and selecting the students for the schedule. Students who meet the requirements can request an interview, but the employer ultimately accepts which students can sign-up for an interview timeslot.

Current Sign-up Method:

  1. Request Period Open – This is the first day students who meet the requirements can request an interview. They will need to submit their resume and any other required documents. 
  2. Request Period Closed – This is the last day students can request an interview. Once this deadline is reached, employers review application materials and make decisions on all candidates to select the students to interview. 
  3. Accepted Students Sign-up Open – This is the first day that "accepted" students may sign-up for an interview timeslot.
  4. Alternate Students Sign-up Open (optional) – This is the first day that "alternate" students may sign-up for an interview timeslot.
  5. Sign-up Closed – This is the last day "accepted" and "alternate" students may sign-up for an interview timeslot. 

Preselect Continuous Schedule

A Preselect Continuous Schedule is a schedule in which qualified students may request an interview until the date for continuous requests is closed. Recruiters may continuously prescreen and select students until they have a full session. When the date for continuous requests closes, employers may choose alternates for this type of schedule, or they may choose to add an additional interview session if there is sufficient interest.

Current Sign-up Method:

  1. Preselect Continuous Open To Requests – This is the first day students who meet the requirements can request an interview. They will need to submit their resume and any other required documents.
  2. Preselect Continuous Closed To Requests – This is the last day students can request an interview.
  3. Sign-up Closed – This is the last day "accepted" students can sign-up for an interview timeslot.

IMPORTANT: At any time until the Preselect Continuous Closed To Requests deadline, employers can review the interview requests and make interview selections (including alternates) on an on-going basis. After the Sign-up Closed date is reached, employers will no longer be able to make any interview selections.

Combined Schedule

A Combined Schedule is a Preselect Schedule followed by an Open Schedule.
