Interview Schedule Options

Types of Interview Schedules

Open Schedules

LSU students and alumni who meet the organization’s requirements sign up for interviews on a first-come, first-served basis.

Preselect Schedules

Recruiters review submitted résumés prior to the campus visit and select candidates to be interviewed. Preselect candidates then have the first opportunity to sign up for interview times. If you choose alternate candidates, they have the second opportunity to sign up for interview times.

Room Only Schedules

The Room Only schedule allows recruiters who already have resumes of interested candidates to interview using our facilities. A Room Only allows you to contact students directly and schedule interviews yourself after reserving your interview date. Students and alumni on your schedule must be registered with the LSU Olinde Career Center. Please note: Students from other universities are not allowed to interview in our facility.

Length of Interviews

After scheduling your date for either an Open or Preselect Schedule, you can choose how long you would like each interview to last. The most popular is 30-minute interviews. Other options are 45-minute or 60-minute interviews.
