While you can always independently apply for jobs, many university career centers offer help through their On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) services. OCR serves as a recruiting method for employers looking to hire directly from select universities for entry-level positions and internships. This is a convenient university service that connects you with top employers to help you line up a job well before graduation.
OCR offers different formats for introducing you to hiring organizations. For example, your university may host career fairs, networking events, and information sessions for employers and students. If you’re curious about potential employers, this is an ideal way to get to know them before sending in an application.
Employers may also host first-round interviews on campus. In this instance, employers coordinate with your university’s career center to collect resumes and schedule interviews. Check with your career center to see what opportunities are available and the best time to apply. Typically, recruitment for full-time positions starts in the fall, and recruitment for internships can be spread throughout the year.
OCR creates a wide range of connections and opportunities. Take advantage of them and position yourself for success.
