Thank you for taking an interest in University of Virginia students! We would love to help you recruit top talent for your organization. Employers who are hiring candidates for bona fide jobs or internships may interview through UVA's On-Grounds Interview (OGI) Program. On-Grounds Interviews occur at Bryant Hall at Scott Stadium in the football skyboxes.
To be eligible to participate in OGI, employers must adhere to the following:
- Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Guidelines
- National Association of Colleges and Employers Principles for Employment Professionals
- UVA's Recruiting Guidelines & Policies
- OGI Policies
Each Spring, employers begin to schedule interviewing space in our office for the following academic year. Scheduling is administered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Due to the popularity of UVA students and limited interviewing space, rooms book very quickly.
After reviewing our OGI recruiting policies, please sign into Handshake to request interview rooms. You will receive an e-mail confirmation within 5 business days confirming your reservation. If you are interested in setting up an information session, there are several on-Grounds and off-Grounds facilities available for this purpose.
Please contact the following offices if you are interested in recruiting Law candidates, MBA candidates, or experienced UVA Alumni.
Bona Fide Work Opportunities
Employers who are hiring candidates for bona fide jobs or internships may interview through the OGI Program. A bona fide job is defined as a professional position, which is salaried (not 100% commission), and does not require the candidate to pay a fee for training, equipment, application procedures or other job-related expenses (this does not apply to federal and state licensing requirements such as real estate, securities, etc.). A draw against future earnings does not constitute a salary.
A bona fide internship opportunity is one where the student works on a project of importance to the organization, receives timely instruction and feedback from the supervisor, and has a mentor-like relationship with someone in the organization who can teach about the organization, in particular, and the industry as a whole.
Employers may only recruit on-Grounds for existing job vacancies or those that will exist by the time a candidate is available for employment with your organization. On-Grounds interviews must be directly scheduled and conducted by the organization's employees, rather than by third party representatives.
Canceled and Late Interview Schedules
For the benefit of the students, we require that employers who cancel interview schedules contact students directly.
UVA Career Center's facilities are to be used by employers solely for the purpose of interviewing with students. Employers who need to conduct employment-related tests should make arrangements for testing facilities at nearby hotels or contact the UVA Test Center Administrator, Bullett Palmer, at email@example.com for assistance.
Employers who do decide to conduct tests at nearby hotels are required to follow the guidelines set forth by the National Association of Colleges and Employers. Employment professionals must advise UVA Career Center of any test conducted. Employment professionals must advise students in a timely fashion of the type and purpose of the test.
Since this may be the first formal interview that a student has ever had, UVA requires that employers inform students of this recruiting strategy within the context of the job description that is posted online.
Student No-Show Policy
The UVA Career Center treats “no shows” very seriously. Students who are reported as “no shows” by an employer are immediately made ineligible for the On-Grounds Interviewing Program. In order to regain eligibility, students are required to write a letter of explanation and apology to your firm, and to meet individually with appropriate departmental Career Center staff. All students are required to agree to these policies prior to participating in On-Grounds Interviewing.
Bryant Hall Parking
Interviewers will need to park in a non-metered space on the top floor of the Parking Deck located on Stadium Road (in the E3 section only). Parking passes will be given out in the main floor lobby (2nd floor). Once employers have placed the parking pass in their car, they will then proceed to the 4th floor suite level for check-in. If parking passes are not available in the lobby, employers should proceed directly to the 4th floor to receive them.
