On Campus Recruiting

Recruiter's visit the campus during the spring to interview prospective graduates for career positions.

College of Arts and Sciences students may sign up for interviews at 9 a.m. each morning, up until the day before the interview, on a first-come, first-serve basis. If a recruiter's schedule is filled, students may sign up on a waiting list. Students on a waiting list, that have not been contacted, should check with the Office of Career Services the day before the interview for cancellations.

Scheduling, Cancelling and Failing to Appear for Appointments

Interview appointments must be scheduled and cancelled in person in the Office of Career Services. If a student is unable to keep an interview appointment, they should notify the office a minimum of 48 hours (two working days) in advance so another student may be scheduled. If a student cancels two interviews less than two working days in advance or fails to show up for a scheduled interview other interviews will automatically be cancelled until that student has talked with the director or associate director of career development. Additionally, if a student fails to appear for an interview, they will be required to write a letter of apology to the recruiter and submit a copy of the letter to the Office of Career Services for documentation in their interview file before they may resume participation in the on-campus interviewing process. (Please note that students who fail to keep two interview appointments, except for emergency reasons, may not be permitted to schedule additional interviews on campus.)

The Day of the Interview

Dress in appropriate business attire (skirted suit, dress and jacket, suit or coat and tie). Check in with the office administrative assistant to receive your interviewer's name. Wait in the Student Services Center reception area until you are called. (Note: Interviews are 30 minutes unless otherwise indicated on the sign-up schedule. Interviews begin approximately at 8:30 a.m and conclude around 4:15 p.m.)

Off-Campus Recruiting and Current Vacancies

Students are also encouraged to make direct contact with recruiters who may not interview on campus. A list of current vacancies is available in the Career Resource Library. Students can submit their resumes directly to organizations announcing current openings.

Relocating and Recruiting

If a student is relocating, they may want to use the services of a career center at a college or university in their new location for recruiting purposes. Ask the director of Career Services at the University of Redlands to write a letter to the center requesting that the student be allowed to use their recruiting services, with the exception of on-campus recruiting.

Contact Career Services for more information.

There are more than 1,700 trees on the University of Redlands campus.

In April 2010, it was designated a Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. Redlands is among just three other colleges or universities in California to receive this designation.
