Once you schedule an appointment, you can view or cancel existing appointments in the “Calendar” tab of your Handshake account.
It depends on the company as every company has its own timeline for recruiting. Typically, you will want to ask your interviewer at the end of your first round interview when you can expect a decision.
Generally, office visits will consist of a series of interviews, meetings, and social events (usually a lunch or dinner with company representatives). Depending on the company, interviews may be individual and/or group, behavioral and/or case. You will typically be given an itinerary when invited for a second round interview or an office visit. Your BCS advisor can give you additional insights on how to prepare for these opportunities.
In general, you should not have this problem for first round interviews since you are typically able to select your interview time. For second round interviews and/or office visits, you should check to see if there are any alternative dates offered by the company. BCS can provide recruiter contact information as needed. If rescheduling the second round interview proves impossible, make an appointment with a BCS advisor to discuss options specific to your situation.
If you scheduled the interview through Handshake and the sign-up period has not closed yet, you can cancel the interview by going to the “My Interviews” section of Handshake. If the sign-up period has closed, you will need to speak to your advisor before you cancel. Please be aware of our Handshake Agreement (located in the Document Library of your Handshake account) and be sure to follow all suggested guidelines.
If you have an interview in BIF, you will always want to check in at 1033 BIF. Most interviews are held in the 1035 suite, but other rooms around the building are occasionally used. Check your Handshake account to verify the location of your interview.
Lost and found is located in 1055 BIF, the Undergraduate Affairs office.
Only College of Business students can use our interview rooms for phone/video interviews. Requests must be made using this form at least 24 hours in advance or they will not be considered.

- Your account has been blocked or disabled. This could be because you have accepted a job offer, violated terms of the Handshake Agreement, or have not met resume and/or mock interview requirements. Speak to your advisor regarding your particular situation.
- Your account has been “soft blocked.” This happens when you have not used your account for an extended period of time. All you need to do in this case is use the “Forgot Password” button on the login page.
- You are not on the right site. There are several career services offices on campus that use the same system as we do and you may have accidentally ended up at one of their sites. Make sure you are on Handshake.
If none of the above applies to you, make note of the error message you receive and contact us.
While we do our best to monitor and verify the jobs posted on our system, it is impossible to be 100% accurate since we share the job board with other campus offices. If you come across a posting that seems illegitimate in any way, please notify our office right away and we will investigate.

For job interviews, mock interviews, and resume critiques with employers, business professional attire is appropriate. Business casual is appropriate for employer information sessions and workshops/events hosted by employers.
Congratulations! First, stop in and complete a placement survey. Include all information about any offers that you have received. We keep your information completely confidential and use it for statistical purposes only. Second, make an appointment with your advisor to evaluate the offer and if applicable, discuss negotiation strategies. If you accept the offer, make sure you decline/cancel any pending interviews and come in to our office so we can take your picture!
If you are an international student, you may need to apply for the appropriate work visa. H1B applications are handled by your employer, but OPT and CPT applications must be submitted through the university. Speak with your advisor for more details.
If you have concerns about the acceptance deadline you have been given or have any other issues with the offer, consult your advisor. Be aware of the Recruiting Principles and Guidelines we ask employers to abide by.
Make sure you do not provide the company with any personal information and notify your advisor as soon as possible.
