On-Campus Recruiting (Interviewing) Program

Recruiting Schedule
The list of organizations scheduled to visit campus can be found on JobGrove.

  1. To access the list, go to www.gcc.edu/jobgrove and enter your username and password.
  2. Click on the Job Search tab at the top, select Advanced Search, and click on the box next to Search Interviews Only.
  3. Click the Search button to generate the complete list.

On-Campus Interview Schedules – Preselect & Open Interviews
On-campus recruiting schedules are either “Preselect” or “Open”. Once you have generated the complete list of interview schedules, click on the View Interview Schedule button to see if the interview schedule is Preselect or Open and click the Job ID or Job Title to view the position details. After reviewing the description, click on the View Linked Interview Schedule to view schedule details and to see if you qualify.

Preselect: To participate in a Preselect Interview, you must meet the employer’s criteria for the position. If you qualify and would like to interview, you can apply through JobGrove. You are required to upload your resume to apply for an interview schedule.

  1. Click the Apply Now button and you will be prompted to select the position you are interested in (if multiple) and the documents you wish to submit to the employer.
  2. Select the documents and click Apply Now. After the employer makes a decision to accept or not accept the interview request, you will be notified by email.
  3. If preselected, access the interview schedule through JobGrove; you can easily do this by clicking the Sign up for interview? link under Upcoming Events on the JobGrove Welcome Page.
  4. Click the Sign-up button at the top of the schedule profile.
  5. Click on the Sign-up link next to the desired timeslot. This will automatically put you on the interview schedule. You may also change the documents you have submitted.

Open: To participate in an open interview, you do not need to wait for the recruiter to select you. If you meet the requirements, you can immediately sign up for an on-campus interview timeslot.

  1. Click the Sign-up button at the top of the schedule profile.
  2. Click the interview date link to view timeslots for the interview and click on the Sign-up link next to the desired timeslot.
  3. Select documents to submit to the employer and click Sign-up.

Employer Information Sessions
Organizations often have information sessions prior to their interview date. It is assumed and expected that all those scheduled to be interviewed will attend. All other students are invited to attend to learn more about the organization whether or not an interview is arranged. Information sessions are listed in JobGrove within the Career Fairs and Events section of the site and are also connected to the job and interview schedule.

Day of the Interview
Research the organization before your interview and come dressed professionally. Plan to arrive 15 minutes ahead of your interview time. Inform the CSO’s Office Manager that you are present.

Procedures & Policies

Authorization of Letters of Recommendation & Transcripts
Recommendation forms to be used by faculty and past employers can be found in the CSO and in the resource library of JobGrove. You have the option to retain or waive your rights to view the recommendation. Upon receiving your recommendations, a personal file will be established in the CSO. Recommendations will be mailed to employers at your request. You can also upload your recommendation letters to My Documents within JobGrove if you have chosen to not waive your rights to view them.

Copies of your transcripts and recommendations are prepared by the CSO and given to campus recruiters for on-campus interviews. Students must authorize the release of their unofficial transcripts and recommendation letters to the CSO by completing a form made available by the office. Students are required to ensure that the QPA listed on their resume exactly matches the QPA listed on their transcript.

Cancellations and No-Shows
It is a privilege to interview on campus and one we hope students will respect. For years, Grove City College has had an honorable reputation with campus recruiters and companies hiring its graduates. To maintain such a reputation, it is necessary to have a policy for cancellations and no-shows.

When you submit a resume for pre-screening or you sign up for an interview, you have made a commitment to that organization. If you are selected, but have to cancel your commitment, you must notify the CSO. Cancellations must be made 48 hours in advance. If the cancellation is not made 48 hours in advance, you must send a letter of explanation to the employer and a copy to the Director of the Career Services Office. Include the reason for missing your interview.

If you do not appear for your interview and fail to follow the procedure outlined above, your on-campus interviewing privileges may be forfeited. Your cooperation in keeping interview commitments is greatly appreciated.

Accepting a Job Offer
Upon receiving a job offer, prayerfully and discerningly approach the decision-making process before accepting or rejecting the offer. Once you have accepted an offer, it is important to keep your commitment and honor your word with that organization, ceasing all job search activity with other potential employers.

After accepting an offer of employment either from on-campus interviewing or through your own efforts, please inform the CSO. We participate in a national program for reporting offers of employment, and we want to include you. Salary offers are kept confidential.
