Handshake

Interview Our BBA Students

For Fall 2020, employers will not be able to reserve space at Grainger Hall for on-site interviews. To protect the safety of our students and colleagues, the School of Business guidance is that campus academic buildings should be reserved for academic usage. We look forward to hosting you in the future.

Please keep the following in mind for on-site interviews:

  • Interviews will be held at the Undergraduate Program Office and Interview Center, 3290 Grainger Hall, 975 University Avenue, Madison, WI 53706
  • Check-in begins at 7:45 a.m. Upon arrival, we will provide a packet containing the interview schedule and student resumes.
  • Between interviews, you can relax, get caught up on work, or meet with UW staff in our Recruiter Lounges, which are equipped with computers, a printer, and refreshments.
  • Lunch is scheduled between 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. unless you indicate otherwise in Handshake when requesting your schedule. For your convenience, the Capital Cafe is located on the first floor of Grainger Hall, and a list of nearby restaurants is available in the Recruiter Lounge in the Dining Guide Book.
  • Some recruiting teams prefer to reserve a lunchroom for their use in Grainger Hall. To request a private lunchroom, please contact Grainger Hall Event Services at 608-262-8679, or graingerevents@wsb.wisc.edu, in advance of your arrival. Lunch orders will incur a room charge, and must be ordered through Grainger Hall Event Services within five working days of the interview date.
  • If your team will be driving to campus and requires parking for your on-campus interview, please let your representative on the Employer Engagement Team know as soon as possible.

If you’d prefer to conduct a remote interview, you can use Handshake to reserve an interview room along with phone or Web-based video interviews (Skype, Google Hangouts, etc.), just as you would for an in-person visit.

Tip: You are encouraged to avoid scheduling first-round interviews on Fridays. However, for second-round interviews, Fridays are preferred.
