On-Campus Recruitment

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.

Obtaining Access to OCR

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.

Preparing for OCR

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.

Employer Presentations

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.

OCR Honor Code

By participating in the OCR program, I agree to the following:

  • All information found on my resume, unofficial transcript, NYU CareerNet profile and other social media platforms is up-to-date, truthful and accurate.
  • I will not share my login information with other individuals from NYU and peer institutions.
  • I give permission to OCR to provide my resume and other job search documents to prospective employers.
  • I will honor all interview and employer commitments. Cancellations of on-campus interviews must be made up to four business days prior to the scheduled interview date.
  • I will sign up for interviews with only those employers for whom I am interested in working.
  • I will exercise professional conduct during any and all recruitment related activities, including interactions with the Wasserman Center staff.
  • I will notify the employer on a timely basis of acceptance or non-acceptance of an offer, either verbally or in writing. I will withdraw myself from the recruiting process after accepting an offer by notifying OCR immediately.
  • If I renege on a verbal or written offer, my Dean will be contacted.
  • Jobs listed in NYU CareerNet may not be shared with another recruiting entity or posted to another job site.
  • I accept that failure to adhere to the OCR honor code may result in the termination of my interview privileges.

  • For detailed information about OCR policies and guidelines, please review the OCR Student User Guide available in NYU CareerNet.

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.

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.

Offer Policy

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.
