Interview On Campus
GECD Career Services maintains 22 interview cubicles. Each cubicle is located in building 12 room 172, and allows for up to two interviewers and one student; unfortunately, group interviews cannot be accommodated. Through the online reservation system, CareerBridge, these rooms can be rented by employers for interviews on campus every fall and spring semester. For step by step instructions on how to reserve an interview room, please look at the Room Reservations Tipsheet or see our Employer FAQ page.
Consider planning your on campus interviews around one of the many career fairs offered throughout the year at MIT. Visit the Attend a Career Fair page or the individual student organization career fair site for date and other fair event details. Please note that room reservations for dates surrounding career fairs fill up quickly!

Job Posting Fee Policy
There is a $30 fee per job/internship posting through CareerBridge. If, however, the posting is associated with on-campus interviewing in our office, the $30 posting fee is waived or refunded; any paid posting approved more than 30 days prior to the associated interviewing dates will not be refunded.
Fully-paid interview room reservations that are cancelled 30 days or more before the interview date will be refunded. Cancelations within 30 days of interviews are not eligible for refunds. This policy realistically reflects the minimum time period required for a company to reserve a room, post a job and recruit students for an On-Campus Recruiting event.
Employers must provide students 24 hours advance notice of on-campus interview cancellations. In addition, employers must alert GECD Employer Relations in advance via email.
Please review our On-Campus Recruiting Policies and Procedures prior to your on-campus visit.
