All on-campus interviews at Georgia Southern University are coordinated through the Office
of Career Services. We offer multiple interview rooms and schedule these spaces through
Eagle Career Net/NACElink. There are three scheduling formats for on-campus interviews:
Pre-Select, Open, and Room Only.
1 This type of schedule allows recruiters to select from submitted résumés for
consideration prior to the interview date. Students who are preselected will then
have the opportunity to sign up for an interview time-slot.
Open Interview Schedules
2 Open interviews allow students to sign up for interviews on a first come, first
serve basis. Students have to meet the recruiters interview eligibility
requirements before they can sign up.
Room Only Schedules
3 Recruiters have the opportunity to reserve a room only, to build their own
schedules through this option. Many recruiters select students they will
interview from career fairs, information sessions or resume referrals.
After you have scheduled your interview through Eagle Career Net/NACElink and have
received digital confirmation you will receive a Confirmation Packet in the U.S. mail. This
packet includes print confirmation of dates and locations of interviews, a parking pass, a
campus map, and driving directions to the campus. If you require additional parking passes,
please let us know as soon as possible.
Changing or Cancelling Schedules
Changes to/or cancelling a schedule can be accommodated prior to TWO WEEKS before the
interview date. If you wish to make any changes or to cancel please contact
Heather Scarboro. Changes made within two weeks of the date may effect the amount of
students participating in your recruitment visit. If you have to cancel your visit, please let us
know as soon as possible as we will need to inform the students.
For Campus Interviewing Services
Phone: 912.478.5197 or Email: email@example.com
On-Campus Other Recruitment Services
Information Sessions are usually scheduled the night before employer on-campus interviews.
These sessions are great tools for new employers recruiting on campus as well as companies
who are familiar with GSU to reach qualified candidates. Information sessions are designed to
give candidates basic company information, i.e.
demographics, culture, future organizational plans, job
information, benefits, company history, etc. Please
request an information session through Eagle Career
Net/NACElink found at www.georgiasouthern.edu/
Information Session Tips:
• Information Sessions will be conducted in the
Career Resource Center in the Office of Career
Services unless otherwise noted or requested by
• Information sessions will be advertised on the
Career Services webpage under "Events
Calendar” and on Eagle Career Net/NACElink.
• While attendance at information sessions is
strongly encouraged, it is not mandatory by
students unless indicated by the employer.
• The Career Resource Center is equipped with an
overhead projectors, computer lab, tables and
chairs (if hosted at other locations the use of
technology may cost a small fee).
• The best sessions are relaxed, informal
conversations over pizza and soft drinks.
• Food service can be coordinated through GSU
catering or through a local restaurant (we do not
require recruiters to use specific vendors).
• Presentations that are short, snappy and lively leave the best impression. The sessions
should be fun and informative.
Information Tables are a FREE method of reaching out to students on-campus. We will
schedule a table for you in one of our high traffic areas on campus and, much like a
career fair, you can talk with students. Information Tables are usually scheduled from
10:00 am to 2:00 pm during the peak hours on campus. We will arrange to have a six
foot table and two chairs ready for you. To schedule an Information Table please contact
Heather Scarboro at 912.478.5197 at least one week prior to your preferred date.

• Career Services will not provide on-site support for recruiters using off-campus sites.
• Career Services cannot provide equipment (lap-top computer, projector, etc) for outreach events
outside the Georgia Southern University campus.
• Employers may only interview students and alumni of Georgia Southern University. If employers
wish to interview other individuals, then other arrangements off of Georgia Southern University
property must be made by the employers.
• Cancellation & No-Show for Employers: If it is necessary to cancel an interview or career fair
reservation, please do so as far in advance as possible. Space is in high demand, and your early
cancellation will allow Career Services to re-assign resources. Please see the Career Fair Policy to
view the guidelines to cancelling event attendance.
• Please request interview schedules in advance to allow students the opportunity to sign up for in-
terviews. If there is a quick turn around then employers run the chance of not having a full
schedule when they interview.
Job Posting Policy
Jobs posted on the Eagle Career Net/NACElink system will automatically be assigned an expiration
date of 30 days past the posting date. Employers may select an expiration date earlier than the 30
day default. If an expiration date beyond the 30 days is selected, Career Services will correct the
date. Employers who have not filled the vacant position can repost the job for an additional 30 days.
Career Services reserves the right to delete job postings deemed unsuitable for students seeking
full-time, internship, co-op, or relevant summer positions.
Résumé Referral Policy
Employers can request to have access to students and alumni résumés at no cost. Résumés can be
screened by major, graduation date, GPA, and other criteria. Student résumés will be transmitted
on the condition that parties outside of your organization will not be permitted access to the
résumés without the written consent of the student.
Career Fair Policies
The Office of Career Services offers several career fairs and other events each academic year includ-
ing the Eagle Expo Career Fair. Eligible employers are those that offer full-time, internship, co-op
positions and some summer experiences. Career fairs are designed to provide a venue for sharing
employment information only. They are not intended for recruiting other businesses or for selling
products and/or services.
Career fair participants who do not comply with the Office of Career Services Career
Fair policies may be asked to leave the event AND may be denied future registration.
Event space is often limited. Any employer may apply for participation in the Eagle Expo Career Fair
or any other event, but there is no guarantee of acceptance. The Office of Career Services screens
employers to ensure they are offering legitimate experiences and that there are a variety of
organizations represented. Employers will receive notice via email that their registration has been
Cancellation of Event Attendance
Employers are able to cancel their registration two weeks or more prior to the event and get a full
refund of all registration fees (this includes career fairs and all other events). If employers cancel
registration less than two weeks before the event or do not show up they will not be eligible for a
refund of their fees. Instead those monies will be applied to the next similar event.
If the Office of Career Services’ records indicate an outstanding balance for any registration,
employers will be given an opportunity to provide documentation of payment. If none is provided,
future space/career fair registration will be denied until payment is received.
