REQUEST YOUR INTERVIEW SCHEDULE


The Center for Career Development (CCD) uses Handshake to assist you in managing your on-campus interview schedule.

 Interviews are held Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. in the interview rooms at the Huff House. We're also pleased to offer use of the Fondren Library study rooms for overflow during peak times. There are no fees for interviewing.

Click the ‘Request an Interview’ button from your home screen in Handshake, choose Rice University, and complete the steps to request your preferred date and rooms needed. Interview and room requests need to be approved by the Career Center. You will receive notice once the interview date has been confirmed. Any changes to the interview schedule need to be communicated to us before students begin signing up for their interview time. 


OCR MODELS


When creating your schedule request in Handshake, you can choose from the following OCR Models:
From the students who have applied, you will select and "invite" students to sign up for an interview on your schedule.

Pre-select

Specify both an application period and a signup period. Primary and alternate student choices are selected after the application period. Primaries are allowed to sign up before alternates.

 Room Only

Choosing this type simply reserves a room. You advertise your opportunity outside of the system and contact students directly to schedule interviews. Please note that positions should not be attached to room reservations, as students cannot view them.

Open 

Students who precisely match your criteria schedule their interviews online on a first-come, first-served basis. The Open schedule works well if you are setting up a schedule on short notice, don’t have time to review resumes and make selections, or are willing to interview anyone who meets your criteria.
