Invite Students

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

After you have identified the students you wish to interview, please submit your invite list through COIN, the School's online career management system. You may also send invitations directly to the students if you wish, but this is not required, as students are notified of invitations from employers through COIN. They must then follow Career Management Center procedures to accept invitations and obtain an interview time slot. The CMC uses COIN functionality to automatically schedule students' interview times.

Invitation lists must be received on time so that we can inform students of their status before the close of internal bidding deadlines. If we do not receive your invitation list by the deadline, we reserve the right to reschedule your interview day, ask you to manage your own schedules, or convert all of your closed schedules to open schedules.

Full-Time Recruiting

Invitation lists are due through COIN exactly two weeks (14 calendar days) before the interview date unless otherwise specified by the Career Management Center.

Internship Recruiting

Invitation lists for internship recruiting are due via our online career management system exactly two weeks (14 calendar days) before the interview date, except for those companies interviewing from January 13-17:

Interview DateInvitation List Due
January 12 - 16, 2015 December 16, 2014
January 20, 2015, onward14 calendar days before interview date

Alternate Invitations

Firms are encouraged to invite at least 2 alternate candidates to ensure that the interview schedules remain full.

Final Schedules

We are not able to fax or send via e-mail the resumes of students on your schedules; these will be accessible at any time in COIN. Schedules will be final at 9am two business days before the interview. Prior to that point, students will be able to change their times so do not print schedules before then. On the interview day, our staff will distribute final schedules and a copy of each candidate's current resume.


Hiring Internationally?

It’s easier than you might think to hire international students in the United States. The CMC has created a guide to help you through the process.
