Callback Interviews Callback interviews are generally held in an employer’s office following an initial screen - ing interview. Employers will usually call to extend an invitation for a callback interview. If you use an answering machine, and we recommend that you do, make sure your message is clear and professional. When scheduling callback interviews, you first need to decide how many interviews to accept. It is important to balance interview- ing with other factors such as school, ex- tracurricular activities, and work. You don’t want to overextend yourself or the quality of your interviews will suffer. You also don’t want to accept a callback interview with an employer with whom you are sure you When your work speaks for itself, don’t interrupt. - Henry Kaiser atResume.com - Vol. 1, Number 19 would not accept an offer of employment. It is unfair to the employer and other interviewing students to do so. When scheduling a callback interview you want to respond to the employer promptly so that your travel arrangements can be made as cost effectively and conveniently as possible. Make sure you keep a complete calendar so that you don’t schedule interviews when you have other commitments such as on-campus interviews, competitions, or exams. Avoid rescheduling interviews, but if you must cancel or reschedule an interview, do it as far in advance as possible. Students often find it advantageous to schedule several interviews in one city at the same time. It is important to inform the employers about your other interviews so that, together, you can decide on a convenient appointment time and so that the employers can share travel expenses.

Guidelines and limits vary among employers. Many students want to schedule callback interviews in conjunction with a visit to see family or friends. That is permissible.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
