Reasons why you May Not be Able to View a Job, Internship, or Interview Schedule

  • Employers have the option of screening four categories:
    • GPA
    • Work Authorization
    • Graduation Date
    • Major
  • If an employer has selected to screen any of the above categories, and you do not fit their screening criteria, you will not be able to view the job, internship, or interview schedule. 
  • Please note that your BTT Gateway account is not linked to your information on file with the university. If your major, graduation date, or GPA has changed since you set up your BTT Gateway account, please update your BTT Gateway profile to reflect those changes.
    • Visit My Account > My Profile and select the appropriate fields to update.
