Fall 2022 Campus Recruiting

The CCD is more excited than ever to host recruiting events for the Fall 2022 semester. Information sessions, interviews, and our Career & Internship Expo will all return in both in-person and virtual formats so our employer partners may connect with and recruit students in a way that best suits their needs and recruiting goals. While we anticipate that Rice will continue to operate as normal heading into the semester, our team remains committed to providing up-to-date information regarding Rice's COVID-19 policies. Please reach out to Ann McAdam Griffin at if you have any questions or have new ideas on how to connect with Rice students.

Request your interview schedule

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

Interviews are held Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and can be hosted virtually or in-person this fall semester. 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 Center for Career Development. You will receive notice once the interview date has been confirmed. Any changes to the interview schedule must be communicated to the CCD before students begin signing up for their interview times.

Interview Schedule Types

When creating your interview request in Handshake, you can choose from the following schedule types:


Specify both an application period and a signup period. From the students who have applied, you will select and "invite" students to sign up for an interview on your schedule. You can select primary and alternate student candidates after the application period. Primaries are allowed to sign up before alternates based on dates you select.

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 students cannot view positions attached to room only positions.


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