We invite employers and graduate/professional schools from a variety of career fields and industries to provide informational presentations and interviews for both full-time career opportunities, continuing education and summer experiences to Davidson students.
Private, public and nonprofit organizations are encouraged to use our services and facilities during the fall and spring semesters. Handshake (login required) is the online system used for managing the on-campus recruiting program.
Résumés should be one page in length and accompanied by all documents that have been requested by the employer (cover letter, transcripts, writing sample, etc.). Application submission deadlines generally take place two weeks prior to the interview unless the employer requests a later date. This allows employers one week to select their interview candidates and students one week to select their interview slot. You can monitor your application status by viewing the "On-Campus Interviews" section of Handshake. The system will automatically notify each student as to the employer's decision.
Late Arrival and No-Shows to Interviews
If a student is late for an interview, it is up to the discretion of the employer as to whether or not they will conduct the interview with the student. The Betty and B. Frank Matthews II ’49 Center for Career Development (Matthews Center) reserves the right to restrict students from applying to and participating in future on-campus interviews if a students fails to give at two business days notice for canceling an interview. Read our Recruiting Policies for Students.
If a student arrives wearing inappropriate attire for the nature of the interview, Matthews Center staff may request that the student make appropriate changes.
