University Career Center and HireRedRaiders Process

During Opportunity Days the Department of Personal Financial Planning and the University Career Center work closely to ensure the job posting and interview process is easy for professionals and students. We are happy to help you troubleshoot any issues you may have during this process. 

Companies & Professionals

Companies will post their jobs on an online hiring system called HireRedRaiders that is ran by the University Career Center. Jobs will be posted for all Personal Financial Planning students to apply for during a certain time frame. Once the jobs close, companies will be emailed to log into HireRedRaiders to make their selections. Companies will be able to see the resumes of all students who applied for their jobs. Companies can choose to interview all students who applied for their posting or only a select few. Once selections are made, the students will be emailed to select a spot on company interview schedules that are maintained by the University Career Center. 

Upon registration for Opportunity Days, companies will be able to select which day(s) they would like to conduct interviews at the University Career Center. Once companies and professionals register, the Department of Personal Financial Planning will contact the University Career Center to secure your interview day and space.

Please note that Opportunity Days is only for Personal Financial Planning students. Students from other academic colleges and majors are unable to participate in this event.

Students

Students will apply for jobs and internships through HireRedRaiders. In order to see the companies that will be here for Opportunity Days, students must have their profile set up in HireRedRaiders, their major declared as "Personal Financial Planning" and they must have a resume attached to their profile. If any students need help with that process, please contact the University Career Center.
