On-Campus Recruiting: Where the Employer Comes to You

On-campus recruiting (OCR) is an easy and convenient way to interview for a job that you are interested in, with the addition of the “home court” advantage of the employer coming to you. It can be hard, for some students to make it to interviews off-campus due to travel abilities or busy schedules. On-campus recruiting is an easy way to resolve both of these issues. Interviewing for a job can be a nerve-racking process. However, being able to speak with someone right here in the Career and Professional Development Center can make the process a little easier.

On-campus recruiting is a great method for searching for jobs. For one, the employer is already interested in students from Nichols and the company would also have a good connection with the college. Taking advantage of OCR opportunities will only benefit you in the process.

On the front page of Road to Success, in the top task bar, you will see the “On-Campus Recruiting Schedule” tab. By putting your cursor over this tab you will see a drop down menu with two options: “sign-up for interviews I qualify for” and “VIEW ALL Upcoming Interviews.”

3. If you wish to sign up for interviews, you can choose the “sign-up for interviews I qualify for” option which will show you what options you have based on your Road to Success profile.

It is important to make sure that your profile with Road to Success is complete and up-to-date with all the information that is needed in order to qualify for the interview.
