You will also see these interview requests when you login to Western Connect.  Interviewees should select and sign up for a time on the interview schedule on-line. Interviews will be held in the interview rooms located in UCC, room 210.  Some interviews may be off-campus or by telephone.Step 6 (Interviews)
  • Attend the first interview. If second interviews are necessary, they may be scheduled at the employer’s location but will be arranged between the employer and the students.
Step 7 (Job Offers)
  • Employers will contact Western Connect with job and salary offers. Students have 48 hours to accept or decline the offer. All students should seriously consider a job offer before acceptance.

Reneging on a job offer after it has been accepted is not permitted.
