Interview Schedules

When you come to campus for full-time and/or internship recruiting, LER will preschedule interviews from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with 10 to 12 interviews per schedule. We recommend this schedule to coordinate with local flights.

To schedule on-campus interviews, contact Wendy Gooch at (217) 333-2777 or wgooch@illinois.edu. You can also reserve dates through Handshake.

Be prepared to provide:

  • Position type: full-time or intern
  • Number of schedules for each position type
  • Interview length (30, 45 or 60 minutes each)
  • Single or back-to-back interviews (back to back = 2 rooms with more than one recruiter; candidate swaps rooms to interview with each set during scheduled time slot)
  • Minimum GPA requirement
  • A job description to post to each interview schedule

Parking

LER provides one complimentary parking space for each recruiting schedule. If your team needs additional spaces, you can use metered parking or purchase a day pass for university meters for $11 from the main LER office. Parking Map

Rental Spaces

Our two rental spaces are in lot C9 on the corner of 5th and Chalmers, Champaign. The spaces (19 and 20) face west and are marked as university reserved rental spaces. If these two spaces are taken, please do not park in any other spaces or the gated parking lot that is just behind the LER building. You will be ticketed or towed.

If those spaces are already full, you can pull onto the LER loading dock directly behind the building and come into the main office to receive your parking pass.

Metered Parking/Passes

Complimentary or purchased parking passes are only valid for university meters, not the City of Champaign meters surrounding the LER building. See the map of university meters for parking passes.

Please note: City of Champaign meters are $.75/hour for a maximum of two hours. University meters are $1.00/hour for 10 hours, located along 6th Street and in lot C9, facing Chalmers. LER is not able to reimburse anyone for tickets received during recruiting.
