Day-after Interviewing: Due to space limitations and COVID protocols on campus, we will not be hosting formal day-after on-campus interviews. Limited on-campus space will be available first-come, first-served to our Scarlet Husker Circle members only. Scarlet Husker Circle members may reach out to Chance Radtke to arrange interview accommodations. If you are interested in more information about joining Husker Circle for the next academic year, please reach out to Courtney Strayer.

We encourage our employers to host day-after interviews virtually. We’ve received feedback from many students that they enjoyed and in some cases preferred this method of interviewing. If you choose to offer day-after interviews, arrangements should be made prior to and we would recommend having a plan to let your students know before the career fair begins.

Alternatively, consider these coworking facilities in the Downtown Lincoln area. Please reach out to these facilities directly to inquire about any fees associated with using their space.
