Information Sessions
Holding an information session is a great way to generate enthusiasm about your organization while also providing valuable information to the student body. Feel free to contact our office with potential dates and we’d be more than happy to ensure there are no calendar conflicts with other University events.


On-Campus Interviewing
Schedule on-campus interviews at Wake Forest! While we are happy to accommodate the recruiting needs of your organization, our on-campus fall interviews begin in October and run through the end of November and spring semester dates begin in February and continue through April. You may request your schedule via our Handshake system at

We are happy to accommodate your interviewing needs in our private Recruiting Suite. Unless otherwise requested, interviews are scheduled at thirty minute intervals, beginning at 8:30 a.m. and ending at 4:30 p.m with a 15-minute morning break, a one-hour lunch break, and a 15-minute afternoon break. For your reference, this scheduling allows for thirteen 30 minute interviews or nine 45 minute interviews


Interview Sign-up Systems
We have two Interview Sign-Up systems to help you select the most qualified students for your positions. You may choose to Prescreen your interview sign-ups by posting a job description in our Handshake system. After the posting deadline we will send the submitted materials for your review so that you may select interview candidates and alternates. You may also choose to use an Open Sign-Up to select interview candidates. In this system any student who meets your job or internship specifications may sign up for an interview on a first-come, first-served basis. Resumes will be available to your organization at least one day prior to your interviews as no pre-screening of the resumes is available.
