How do I schedule a recruiting date?

Employers have the option to host an on-campus recruitment table. We have a few locations around campus to host tables depending the on type of position in which you are recruiting. The majority of employers host recruitment tables on our Breezeway. The Breezeway is the main artery of campus in which many students pass through daily. Tabling opportunities require ten days advanced notice and only can occur Monday-Thursday 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Companies are allowed to host one table per week maximum. If you are interested in hosting a recruitment table, log onto Owl CareerLink. Once, in hover over the “Career Events” tab at the top of the page. In the dropdown you will see “Request Info Session/Recruitment Table” Click on that. Enter all required information. If you are not prompted to submit a date (it usually only asks for a time) please include the date on the “Event Details” area. I will delete the date info but whatever else you enter into the “event details” field will be seen by students so this is a great place to include company information and anything else you believe would entice them to come to visit the table.

Contact the Employer Relations Team at (561) 297-3533 to schedule a recruiting date or request a date through OWL CareerLink.

Recruiting Timeline

The FAU Career Center offers two different ways on-campus interviewing can be set up for an employer. You can choose “Rooms Only” in which you use our on-campus interview suites to interview FAU students/alumni. If you select “Rooms Only,” you manage your own schedule and are required to give us your interviewee list the day before your interviews. The other option is the choose “Pre-Select” in which you use our on-campus interview suites to interview FAU students/alumni and we manage your interview schedule. In “Pre-Select,” students will submit their resumes to Owl CareerLink for your posted position(s). You select from that list which students you would like to extend an interview. Once the extension for the interview has been made, FAU staff will work with the students to select from the pre-selected interview time slots available to schedule their interviews. While FAU staff are much more hands on in “Pre-Select,” the no-show rate is generally lower than “Rooms Only.” Below is the time line for on-campus interviews:

  1. At least one month before desired on-campus interview date: visit Owl CareerLink to request on-campus interview date (both “Rooms Only” and “Pre-Select”)
  2. Four business days prior to interview date: preselects must be reviewed (“Pre-Select only)
  3. Three business days prior to interview date: Selections must be made by the employer (“Pre-Select only)
  4. One day prior to interview date: Schedules available (“Pre-Select only)

All questions should be directed to 561-297-3533.
