On-Campus Recruitment Program (OCR)


The On-Campus Recruitment Program (OCR) offered by the CEDAR Center facilitates on-site interviews for full-time, part-time, and internship opportunities nationwide. Employers participating in the on-campus recruitment program are from a wide variety of industries, and seek students from diverse academic disciplines.

There are two time frames for the On-Campus Recruitment. The fall semester will commence in October and run to mid November. The spring semester will commence in January and run to mid March. The On-Campus Recruitment Calendar will be publicized at the beginning of each semester for participating students to review and is available at the CEDAR Center, on-line through our NACELink System as well as on the Events Calendar posted on this website.
