  • Interview Coordination and Support


    Darden will provide logistical support to first-round interviews only. Organizations planning to host second-round interviews on Grounds are responsible for conducting their own scheduling and logistics beyond the first round. Priority will be given to first round interviews for interview space.

    All companies must provide at least one alternate date for students and must be flexible with the student’s previously committed first-round obligations, and second-round interviews cannot conflict with classes. Darden has video conference capabilities and quiet space available for students to participate in video conference, web-based or phone interviews. Continental breakfast and lunch is provided to all interviewers.

  • Hiring International Students


    Darden has many talented, purpose-driven international students seeking full-time roles and internships. When recruiting on Grounds or creating a job posting, the CDC needs information on work authorization requirements in order to ensure that international and domestic students understand any constraints placed on positions. If work authorization requirements are not specified, open slots on interview schedules are automatically available to both domestic and international students.

    For more information regarding hiring international students, we encourage you to reference this easy guide to hiring international graduates and this guide on H-1B filing strategies, exemptions and alternatives.
