Employers visit the WCU campus in the fall and spring semesters to interview students for jobs and internships; the positions are posted in Handshake. You may search for positions that interest you, review the descriptions/qualifications/application directions, and then apply no later than the "resume deadline." Most interviews are "Pre-Select" - meaning you must first apply, the employer then has a short period of time to review applicants, and finally they will "pre-select" individuals to invite for an interview.
To be considered for an interview, you must apply directly to each position of interest; just uploading a resume into Handshake is not enough. Follow these instructions on how to APPLY via Handshake!
Interviews begin as early as mid-September and end in late-April. On-Campus Interviews (OCI) are sometimes the only way to connect with certain employers, and overall are a great way to secure internships and post-graduation employment.
If you are looking to apply to On-Campus Interviews, you can go about this two different ways: searching for specific interviews and then applying to the related jobs, or by searching for an applying for jobs that are connected to interview schedules. You can read more about applying for job here.
