2nd Day Interviews

Printer Friendly PDF: 2nd Day Interviews

Thank you for your interest in participating in the Montana Tech Career Fair. Join us to conduct face-to-face interviews on Wednesday, January 29, 2020. Interviews will take place in the HPER where tables will be available for each recruiter to conduct interviews.

To participate, recruiters must indicate this desire by selecting the Additional Item of 2nd Day Interviews in our event registration. They will then receive an e-mail with a checklist outlining the mandatory tasks to complete before the fair (Don’t worry! It isn’t rocket science, and we’re here to help!).

First, you will be asked about open(ing) jobs or internships for which your recruiters will be interviewing. Then, these will need to be posted onto DIGGERecruiting – DR 2.0. Next, your recruiters must decide if they wish to Pre-Screen student applicants and their resumes for interviews before the Career Fair, or if you’ll accept Open Signup's for interviews at the Career Fair. You’ll also need to create an on-campus interviewing (OCI) schedule with Career Services as soon as possible. Your interview schedule will be posted onto DR 2.0 to allow for students to indicate interest with your company or to sign up for interviews ahead-of-time (if you choose to pre-screen). Remember – On-campus interviewing schedules can also be created any time during the academic year for recruiting visits!

Please note the following major DEADLINES:

Tuesday, January 14th, 2020 at 11:30 PM MST – Last day to register for 2nd Day Interviews
Wednesday, January 15th, 2020 at 4:00 PM MST – Last day to choose Pre-Screen option
Friday, January 17th, 2020 at 4:00 PM MST – Job/Internship posting(s) on DR 2.0 must be approved
Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020 at 4:00 PM MST – OCI schedules must be finalized on DR 2.0
Friday, January 24th, 2020 at 4:00 PM MST – Last day to request interview packets

On the morning of the Career Fair, all recruiters are provided with a Welcome folder at check-in. This year, the folders will include Interview Cards for recruiters to provide to students that they’d like to interview. Each company will receive exactly as many interview cards as interview slots for the following day, as determined by the previously created OCI schedule. To sign up for times, students who receive the interview invite card from your recruiters during the fair will sign up for a time to interview with your company at the designated Interview Sign-Up table in the HPER lobby near check-in. This will prevent double-booking interview times and is intended to be easier for all recruiters than years’ past collection of paper schedules directly after the fair.

The morning of 2nd Day Interviews, recruiters will be given their finalized interview schedule at check-in that includes a student’s name, interview time, e-mail and academic major. This schedule will reflect student sign-ups that take place at the Career Fair on Tuesday, January 28th or those who were invited to interview through pre-screening selection. Please note: Due to staffing, interview packets (which usually include a resume for each student on the interview schedule but may also include transcripts, if emphasized by recruiters) will only be available by request in advance (no later than Friday, January 24th, 2020!).
