Interview Room Scheduling

Interview rooms are available for employers to interview students on campus. This options works best when following up a posting in Lightning JobSource or attending one of our career fairs.  Employers will schedule interview times directly with students and will forward the schedule to the Career Development Center prior to the interview date. 

  • All Interviews will begin no earlier than 8:30 a.m. and end by 4:00 p.m.
  • Only MTSU students and alumni will be interviewed
  • To schedule a room(s), please contact us at

OCR Program

Our On-campus Recruitment Program enables you to interact face to face with students. Reserve a date in one of our student union or academic buildings. On-Campus Recruitment is conducted in the Fall and Spring Semesters. We are able to reserve tables in the Atrium of the New Student Union Building on a limited basis. Availability depends upon current recruiting activity by other employers and ongoing Student Life programming. This option works best where recruiters want visibility in a high student traffic area.

  • All table reservations will be within the timeframe of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
  • We must make reservation requests at least two weeks in advance.
  • Please contact us at to request dates and times.
