Student Groups

Student groups wishing to reserve interview space in the Career Center should email with the dates, number of rooms and type of rooms needed (interview or conference).

  1. The Pomerantz Career Center is open from 8am-4:30pm. We ask that interviews take place between those hours. Ideally, interviews will start at 8:30am and the last interview will start at 4pm. Please let us know if you need access to the interview space prior to 8am.
  2. Interview groups should only access front entrance doors - not the back doors as those require swipe access.
  3. We ask that you please keep the interview rooms as tidy as possible. Please push chairs back in and empty trash (there are bins in the main waiting room).
  4. There may be other interviewers/interviewees or full-time staff using the space, so please keep the noise to a minimum. If you need to have a group discussion, please close the office door.
