Each semester, a formal recruitment program is organized with participating companies to post available positions and schedule a date to come to campus to conduct interviews of invited candidates. Students who wish to participate must attend at least one On-Campus Recruitment Orientation to be enrolled in the program (usually in the first month of the semester) and must get their account reactivated at the beginning of each school year thereafter (September). Note: There are deadlines to participate in the program, so it is advisable to inquire at the beginning of the semester as to the orientation dates. The program is only open to current students.
