Meet exceptional students and alumni at our fall and spring Job and Internship Fairs, which are widely regarded as the most affordable and well-organized recruiting events in the D.C. area.


Enjoy the efficiency and convenience of interviewing AU students and alumni through our free On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) program. From late September through early December and February through April, transform our fully equipped interview rooms into satellite offices for you and your recruiting team.

Utilize AU CareerWeb to request an interview date, post available positions, review resumes from qualified candidates, and select interviewees. Then contact our Employer Relations Coordinator at least 24 hours prior to your interviews to arrange for easy Internet access through your personal laptop while on campus.

To generate buzz about your upcoming on-campus interviews and further brand your organization, host an information session open to all interested students or by invitation only. Submit your afternoon or evening event request through AU CareerWeb and partner with our Employer Relations Coordinator who actively promotes OCR schedules to appropriate audiences. Due to space limitations on campus, information sessions are only accommodated for organizations conducting on-campus interviews in the same time frame, or are in the top 25 of the Desired Employers List as ranked by students through our biannual survey. As an alternative, we are happy to promote your organization's virtual events.
