The majority of the employers who recruit at SMU choose to screen the resumes of candidates in advance. Employers will post a job in On Campus Interview Schedules and request students submit their resume by a deadline. Some companies require additional information such as cover letters, transcripts, applications, or writing samples. Review the Employer’s Job Description in On Campus Interview Schedules carefully for instructions and deadline information. The employer will then review resumes for approximately 1 week and select students to interview.
