On-Campus Recruiting

Campus recruiting at Pace is easy!  Take advantage of your opportunity to gain early access to graduating Bachelor and Masters Level Students majoring in a variety of fields. Our students are highly-qualified and eager to interview with you!  You can also recruit matriculating candidates for your winter or summer internships.

On-Campus Interview Dates

Fall 2015 New York City Campus and Pleasantville Campus


  • Students return to school on September 2nd
  • On campus presentations: we recommend scheduling your interviews between October 5th and November 20th in order to allow students time to acclimate to the fall semester and to minimize interference with holiday closings.
  • No scheduled interviews on the following dates: October 7th (Pleasantville Campus Job & Internship Fair **Please note: participating employers may conduct interviews at the fair.  Contact us for more information); October 12th (Columbus Day)

How Does It Work?

  1. You reserve an interview date and interview room(s) with Career Services through our online job portal: Handshake
  2. Positions are posted for free on Handshake.
  3. Students review positions and apply online.
  4. You then “pre-select” the candidates you wish to interview and notify us of your choices (7-10 days prior to interviews). 
  5. Selected students sign-up for interview slots.
  6. The completed schedule is sent to you no later than one business day prior to the interview date.
  7. Your team interviews candidates at Pace University using our interview room.

Participating employers must comply with the following:

  • Must fully disclose the salary, training allowance, incentive programs, and commission structure.
  • Employers offering commission jobs may participate in careers fairs and job postings online, but not in our Campus Recruiting Program.
  • Employers may participate in on-campus interviews when recruiting for salaried positions only. 
  • Third Party Recruiters/Contract Recruiters may list openings however, they may not participate in on-campus interviewing.

Employer Site Interviews
We post your job descriptions on our website for students to view and apply for interviews.  You receive resumes as students apply, up to the pre-arranged application deadline date.  If you prefer, we email all resumes in one bundle following your resume drop date.  You directly contact the candidates of your choice and arrange interviews at your location.  We request that you let us know who you have interviewed and/or offered positions.

Guidelines for Employment Offers

  • Career Services asks that employers recruiting our students be flexible, reasonable, and communicative throughout the interview process.
  • We advise our students to openly discuss their offers and decision-making with their counselor and employers as necessary. 
  • We expect that employers will honor all offers made and place no pressure or conditions on our students regarding acceptances.
  • In order to establish a fair and competitive recruiting environment for both students and employers, Pace recommends the following guidelines regarding employment offers and dates for final decisions:

Fall Semester Spring Semester

October 10th:  Any full-time job offers extended to students prior to the start of fall recruiting (including offers to summer interns) we request that you give that student until October 10th to make a decision.

March 30th: For all spring on campus interviews we request that you give students until March 30th to make a decision.  Interviews conducted after March 30th should allow students 2 weeks to decide.
