Every effort should be made by the recruiting organization to avoid changes in interview date(s). When changes must be made, the Career Center should be notified well in advance to avoid inconvenience for job candidates and staff. Refreshments and audio-visual equipment for information meetings are the company’s responsibility; however, we will assist with local catering recommendations. Any students meeting with or interviewing with an organization’s representative must be documented, and a copy of all information collected must be submitted to the Career Center after the recruiting visit. Information regarding job offers and placement of Charleston Southern University students is important data we must collect.

Take place between the hours of 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. To schedule a recruitment booth, please contact the Career Center at least 5 days in advance in order to reserve your spot.
We will arrange for a table in a high traffic area; it is the recruiter’s responsibility to supply all displays and materials.
