Employers can choose to host on-campus, off-campus, or virtual interviews.

Interviews conducted on-campus allow employers and candidates to establish an authentic and personal connection, evaluating technical proficiency and cultural alignment within your organization. Virtual interviews allow enhanced accessibility, efficiency, and scheduling flexibility, and may optimize your team’s time and resources.

Whether opting for on-campus, off-campus, or virtual interviews, your industry account manager will help facilitate the process seamlessly:

  • Industry account managers will work with you to schedule an interview date. Interviews are tailored to the employer’s schedule preferences. Refer to “Helpful Hints & Best Practices: Interviews” (below) for sample interview templates.
  • For specific interview period deadlines, refer to the "2024-2025 Campus Interview Timeline" (below). 
  • Campus interviews are conducted at Duke's Fuqua School of Business in specially designated interview rooms of the Career Management Center.
  • Pre-term campus interview requests must be submitted by December 3, 2024. Refer to Fuqua's Recruiting Calendar & Policies for additional information. 
  • Interviews are scheduled through Fuqua's CareerBridge.

  • Interview Timing:
    • Full-time interviews are traditionally conducted in the fall, beginning in October.
    • Internship interviews begin in January.
    • Interviews can continue for both full-time and intern positions throughout the spring semester except for academic breaks and final exams. Refer to Fuqua’s Recruiting Calendar for more information.
  • Recruiters are encouraged to share the dates of on-site second-round interviews or sell events with their industry account manager. Typically, this information is shared as an "FYI" in CareerBridge for student planning purposes. 
  • Campus printing capabilities are limited on the day of interviews. Please send any materials that need to be printed, two days in advance, to your industry account manager.
  • It is important that both the employer and student communicate openly throughout the interview, offer, and evaluation processes. All companies should establish and maintain, at most, a four-week window of communication with candidates throughout the process.
    • For example, if your interview was held February 13, please send a follow-up communication no later than March 13, even if the message simply states your process is continuing and that candidates will be notified by an approximate date.
    • All candidates not selected for further consideration should receive notification of their final status once the selection process has concluded.
