Drop-In Interviews

A drop-in interview event is similar to speed networking. Recruiters will interview candidates every 15 minutes. This allows recruiters to meet many candidates in a short amount of time. Drop-in interviews are open to SJSU students and the general public to ensure a diverse pool of qualified candidates.

At the end of the day, you can host a 30-minute group interview with up to 20 candidates. Group interviews will allow you to answer candidate questions and provide information about next steps.


$200. Includes: marketing, candidate pre-screening, event hosting, parking validation, and media equipment, private interview room reservation, and wifi.

  • Must have 5+ positions to fill.
  • Positions must require little (6 months) to no experience.
  • A job description must be provided in advance.
  • Must meet with and interview each candidate referred.
