Recruiting & Campus Interviews
OCS Recruiting (formerly called the Campus Interview Program) promotes specific application deadlines and facilitates both virtual and in-person interviews for over 100 employers. These organizations often engage in multiple recruiting activities, including career fairs, information sessions, and/or coffee chats and office hours, which is why their campus engagement is referred to as “Recruiting” as opposed to simply posting or hiring. These employers often recruit on an earlier timeline, usually late summer and early fall. Most of these employers seek to hire students for internships over junior summer and for full-time employment post-graduation. Some organizations, however, also offer pathway and diversity programs for first-year students and sophomores.
Employers with facilitated interview schedules post their job and internship opportunities in Crimson Careers. Whenever possible, OCS consolidates the application deadlines for these firms on Wednesdays to make it easier for students to manage their calendars, but employers can have deadlines on any date. Some employers will use Crimson Careers to schedule virtual or in-person interview dates and times, and some will use their own internal systems. In either case, OCS will specifically highlight these opportunities on the Recruiting email list and students and employers abide by policies to ensure the smooth facilitation of this high-volume process.
