On-Campus Interviewing
Appointments between you and your representatives and our students and alumni will be arranged to your specific instructions. Interviews are normally scheduled between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, from October through May. Thirty-minute interviews are customary; however, arrangements for longer or shorter interviews can be easily arranged with sufficient advance notice.

It is recommended that a convenient date be selected at least two weeks in advance for a recruiting visit. This permits our staff to properly advertise and publicize the visit.

Recruiting Arrangements
In order to assure optimal publication and promotion of your visit, complete the online recruitment information form. It should be completed in detail and returned promptly to the Center for Career and Pre-Professional Development . This will allow the center to publish and distribute accurate recruiting schedules and monitor sign-ups to insure that candidates meet your needs.

Interviews are scheduled on an open sign-up basis. This permits students to review specific fields of interest, obtain available literature, and select a convenient appointment time. Correspondence will be forwarded confirming each organization's recruiting arrangements.

We will display your literature in our Career Resource Library for interested candidates to review. This literature will expose you to sophomores and juniors who will be making career decisions and interviewing in the near future. It has been our tradition to emphasize to our students the importance of knowing as much as possible about the organizations with which they will be interviewing before they present themselves as candidates. We would appreciate, therefore, if you would arrange to send us at least 15 copies of relevant literature. We request that your literature arrive at the Center for Career and Pre-Professional Development at least two weeks prior to your visit.

Luncheon Arrangements
Luncheon arrangements with faculty members are encouraged. This permits discussions about programs and curriculum and their relationship to the job market, as well as giving the interviewer the opportunity to discuss specified students with the faculty member. The Lincoln Room in Seymour Union is recommended for lunch. Numerous fast-food establishments and formal restaurants are available in Galesburg for recruiters planning overnight visits to the campus.

Equal Employment Opportunity
The Center for Career and Pre-Professional Development accords equal opportunity to all placement registrants with regard to sex, race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation or affectional preference, age, marital status and disability. Organizations visiting the Knox College campus are likewise expected to conform to equal opportunity regulations in their recruitment practices.
