Interviewing Dates

Firms are welcome to interview on or off campus. However, it is recommended that all first round interviews be on campus to ensure maximum access to students. To facilitate this, we have protected on-campus interview dates by industry. On these dates, Kingston-based students are not allowed to leave the Kingston campus for out-of-town interviews. If a firm chooses to conduct first-round, on-campus interviews outside of these dates, they could risk students not being in Kingston.

Firms are welcome to interview prior to the on-campus dates. However, as per the recruitment policy, they must keep any offer open until the sign-back date.

This also applies to accelerated recruiting in the summer period. Interviews are permitted during the summer, however any offers made in the summer must abide by the designated sign-back date on the recruitment policy. The only exception is if a summer offer is made to return to the same firm the following summer or year. In this case, the firm may determine the offer expiry.
