Does participating in the Employment Center guarantee me a job?
No, it does not. The Employment Center facilitates communication between candidates and employers. It is not a placement service.
Does participating in the Employment Center guarantee that I will be asked for an interview?
No, it does not. The purpose of the Employment Center is to facilitate communication between candidates and employers. The scheduling of interviews is entirely up to the employers. Your chances of getting an interview are increased, however, by submitting your CV as early as possible and sending your applications to registered employers as soon as you can after you see the job listed in the online Employment Listings.

I’ve preregistered with the Employment Center. Do I need to check in with the Employment Center staff before I start using the Center?
No, just be sure to access the Annual Meetings edition of Employment Listings, found online.
How does a candidate know an employer is interviewing onsite?
Employers , will have an Employment Center logo next to their ad in the online Employment Listings. Additionally, the special Annual Meeting edition of Employment Listings of registered job ads will be accessible to candidates, indicating job classifications and type of interview (whether employers are conducting open, prearranged, or both).
What are open interviews? What are prearranged interviews?
Open interviews are when employers set up interviews with candidates onsite. Interviews are arranged onsite when a request is sent through the Message Center, a response is given, and a time selected and confirmed completely through the Message Center by the candidate and employer.
Prearranged interviews are when an employer schedules an interview with a candidate who has already applied for the position prior to the start of the Employment Center (generally the candidate has sent in an application through the job ad posted on Employment Listings). These employers are not expected to respond to general inquiries.
Where does a candidate go for an interview?
Interviews take place in either the Employment Center Interview Hall or in Private Interview Rooms.
For an interview in the Interview Hall, candidates wait in the Candidate Lounge (located in the main Employment Center). Employers meet candidates there in the lounge and escort them to the Interview Hall.
Private Interview Rooms are located outside of the Employment Center. If an employer plans to interview you in a Private Interview Hall, he/she will have notified you before the meeting. You will need to arrive at the Employment Center at least twenty minutes before your scheduled interview so that you can inquire at the Private Interview Room Check-in Desk and be sent to the proper location.
Employment Center policies apply to interviews in the Private Interview Rooms as well as in the Interview Hall. If an applicant is uncomfortable meeting in a Private Interview Room, he or she should alert the employer immediately and request that the interview be scheduled in the Interview Hall.
