How it works: First we establish a date you would like to come to campus to conduct interviews. Your organization and position are then posted on College Central Network. We will then establish a deadline date by which interested students must apply online. After the deadline passes, you view, print, and prescreen candidate resumes, make candidate selections and forward those names to the ICCD via fax (570-674-6700), email email@example.com or phone (570-674-6409). We can also arrange to e-mail or fax you the resumes of interested students. The ICCD then notifies students of selection and establishes interview schedules.
