On-Campus vs. On-Site Interviews

Why do some organizations conduct on-campus interviews and others don't?

Organizations have different procedures for handling their recruitment and interview process. Some require initial phone interviews before arranging in-person interviews. Some require applicants to complete skills or personality tests. Some do initial interviewing here at USD Career Services, whereas others arrange first interviews at their offices. Some conduct a single interview, while others require two or three interviews before making offers.

So there is no real difference in the types of jobs or organizations that conduct (or do not conduct) on-campus interviews. But initial on-campus interviews are certainly convenient for students!

Whatever the procedures and requirements – your job as a candidate is to be as prepared as possible, to present yourself in a professional manner, and to convince the recruiter that you've got what it takes to succeed in the position.
