Interview Program

The University of Richmond’s Interview Program is a convenient way for you to conduct interviews with Richmond students for career-related positions including full-time, internship, and externship opportunities. We make it easy for you to select and connect with qualified students, and we’ll coordinate the on-campus or virtual interview logistics for you.

Employers can choose to hold interviews with students either on campus in the University’s Queally Center Career Services interview suite or virtually via video conferencing. For on-campus interviews, you will have access to private professional interview rooms, as well as free parking, Wi-Fi, and lunch. Virtual interviews are conducted through the University’s Zoom video conferencing technology.

Whether your interviews are on campus or virtual, Career Services removes the time-consuming task of having to coordinate an interview schedule. Through our online recruiting platform, Handshake, we will arrange a schedule that best accommodates your plans. A typical interview schedule runs 9:00 a.m. – 4:45 p.m. ET (with the exception of holidays, final exams, and University breaks), which includes up to twelve 30-minute interviews with one 75-minute lunch and two 15-minute breaks. However, Career Services can customize an interview schedule according to your needs.

In advance of the interview date, you will have access to students’ application documents (e.g., resumes) to make your candidate interview selections. Upon receiving your selections, Career Services will communicate with each candidate directly to coordinate your schedule. The business day prior to the interviews, you will receive the final interview schedule along with any additional information and instructions (e.g., resumes, vehicle parking instructions, Zoom URL links, etc.)

Our Interview Program is available to you at no cost. Interview schedule requests are to be submitted via SpiderConnect at least four weeks in advance to allow for sufficient time for logistic coordination, promotion to students, and application submission.

To protect the health of our visitors and campus community from COVID-19, in-person recruiting activities such as on-campus interviews may be subject to the University’s Physical Distancing Framework.
