Interview Service FAQ for Job Candidates and Employers

↕Job Candidate FAQ

What is the APSA Annual Meeting Interview Service?
APSA provides space and facilities for employers who have an active eJobs listing to interview job candidates onsite at the APSA Annual Meeting. The Interview Service is held Thursday through Saturday of the Annual Meeting, from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm on Thursday and 8:00 am – 6:00 pm on Friday and Saturday.   

How do you indicate your availability for the Annual Meeting Interview Service?
Beginning on June 1, candidates can go to their eJobs account and indicate which days they will be available for an interview. All departments with an active job listing can see when individual candidates are available. If the department wishes to schedule an interview they will contact you to make arrangements. Please note that indicating your availability does not guarantee an interview.

How are interviews arranged?
Participating departments will contact job candidates directly if the department seeks an interview.

Can job candidates contact employers to arrange an interview?
Yes. After submitting an application for the position, job candidates may contact the hiring department to indicate their interest in an interview. Beginning on June 1, eJobs posts indicate whether the department will be using the APSA Interview Service to meet with candidates.
