How to Participate

We know you’re busy, so we make sure recruiting through SLAC is both productive and hassle-free. Here’s all you need to do:

Register with SLAC

If you’re ready to recruit top-quality candidates at a SLAC event, please complete the online registration form. Once you’ve registered, our Recruiting Coordinator will be in touch to provide you with access to our recruiting database, walk you through the next steps, and answer any questions you may have along the way.

Post your positions

Once you’ve registered for an event and received access to the SLAC recruiting database, you can log in to post your position description(s). We recommend posting your positions well in advance of the deadline, to make sure there are no issues or questions. (See the timeline for specific deadlines for each event.) You may advertise as many positions as you like.

Select your candidates

The application period opens several weeks before each event. Students log in to the database to review opportunities and submit their application materials. After the application period closes, each employer receives an electronic resume bundle containing the application materials of interested students from each of the consortium schools.

Employers then have several days to review students’ application materials and make decisions regarding which candidates they wish to interview and which they’d like as alternates. When you’re ready to select your candidates, you can log in to the SLAC recruiting database to invite your selected students to interview. Students then sign up for interviews online; if any spaces remain, alternates may then sign up as well. All scheduling is handled online through SLAC, and each employer is sent a final schedule before the event.

Attend your event(s)

  • Spring Video Interview Days (Wednesday, February 23 & Thursday, February 24, 2021)

Interview Events

Each event takes place over two to five days. Employers will be able to select their preferred date to schedule up to 10 interviews to be conducted via video-conferencing. Interview slots are prescheduled for 30 minutes with 15 minute breaks between each interview.

Students will be scheduled for specific time slots and will be interviewing with you via video-conference. Contact information for the SLAC event managers will be provided to all employers prior to the event.

Employers will be able to schedule a test call with SLAC’s Recruiting Coordinator in the weeks leading up to the event to review event procedures and test functionality.

Career Fair

The Winter Virtual Career Fair will take place on Handshake. Employers are able to set their schedules for 30-minute group information sessions. Upon registration, SLAC’s Recruiting Coordinator will provide you with guidance for setting up your career fair schedule on Handshake.

Follow up

The Recruiting Coordinator will follow-up with you to finalize details, answer any questions, and solicit any feedback you might have about the process. We also request that you keep us informed regarding your hiring outcomes.
