On-Campus Recruitment (OCR) is an opportunity for NYU juniors, seniors and graduate students to interview on campus with top employers for some of the most competitive internships and full-time jobs available.
From September through April, organizations from a wide variety of for profit and non-profit industries visit the Wasserman Center and interview both undergraduate and graduate students in the Class of 2015 for full-time employment after graduation (excluding Law, Medicine, Dentistry and M.B.A. students). From January to April, students in the Class of 2016 may access OCR to obtain interviews for summer 2015 internships.

The Wasserman Center Internship Grant was established to provide financial assistance to students pursuing non-paying internships within not-for-profits*, the arts, education, public service and other industries that do not traditionally pay their interns. The Wasserman Center is able to offer approximately 150 $1,000 grants during the fall, spring, and summer terms. This number is subject to change based on available funds. Applications are reviewed by the Wasserman Center Internship Grant Committee and representatives from various NYU academic departments.
Additional details, eligibility criteria, applications, and important deadlines for the spring grant are available on NYU CareerNet under Job ID #953347. For those studying away this spring (including the Washington, DC site), the spring grant details are available under Job ID #954450. Please keep in mind this is a competitive process.
