On-Campus Recruitment (OCR) is one of the many ways for NYU juniors, seniors, and graduate students to discover job and internship opportunities. Through OCR, employers come to the Wasserman Center to interview students. In addition to participating in OCR, we recommend that you also attend our seminars, apply for positions via NYU CareerNet, attend career fairs, and meet with a career coach to help identify opportunities that are right for you.
To obtain access to OCR, you must attend both a mandatory OCR Orientation and an Acing the Interview seminar (find upcoming dates and times on NYU CareerNet > Events > Seminars). If you are unable to attend an OCR orientation in person please access the virtual orientation and quiz.
You will not be able to gain access to OCR without first attending an OCR Orientation. OCR Orientations are generally offered weekly.
Students participating in OCR are encouraged to take advantage of the Wasserman Center's career exploration and job search services. Having a polished resume, a powerful cover letter, and perfecting your interviewing and professional networking skills are the keys to success in a job or internship search.
Companies visit campus to give general information about their business, industry and available positions. We strongly urge you to attend all the information sessions held by companies in which you have an interest, as employer presentations are a great opportunity to network with a variety of companies. For a detailed schedule of the companies that are coming to campus to give presentations, log on to NYU CareerNet and click Events > Information Sessions.
By participating in the OCR program, I agree to the following:
Review important OCR dates here.
OCR is open to all NYU students enrolled in a degree program who are graduating in 2016 and 2017. December graduates still maintain OCR privileges throughout the spring semester.
Students studying abroad at NYU Global sites are encouraged to participate in OCR. If you are selected for an interview, please sign up for a time slot that works for your schedule (Eastern Time) and email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you are abroad. We will reach out to the employer on your behalf to see if they are willing to interview you virtually or phone during your time slot.
Cancellations of on-campus interviews must be made no less than four business days prior to the scheduled interview date. If you cancel within four business days or are a no-show, your OCR access will be immediately suspended. If you would like to appeal, please call the recruitment desk at 212.998.4737 to schedule an in-person appointment with the Director to discuss your situation.
We ask employers to give students three weeks to decide about job offer. If a summer internship is converted to a full-time offer, students have until October 5, 2015 to decide.
