On-Campus Recruiting (OCR)

The On-Campus Recruiting program (OCR) brings to campus a variety of employers from all different industries and sizes to recruit AU talent, and interview AU candidates on campus throughout the fall and spring semesters. Interviews take place in the Career Center or in the Kogod Center for Career Development. Students and alumni who qualify for positions are eligible to apply. Review the OCR Application Instructions for information on applying. Candidates are strongly encouraged to review their resume with a peer advisor before applying for positions as well as all OCR Program Policies to understand the expectations of candidates participating in the program.

Employer-in-Residence Program

#RecruitAU: Employer Exchange

This dynamic, rotating information session features nine organizations presenting 30-minute information sessions each, in three rounds. You pick which organizations are relevant to you and your career pursuits, and join their audience. A concurrent networking reception provides space for people to gather and exchange business cards and resumes before and after, while enjoying refreshments.

Networking Receptions

Networking receptions provide the opportunity for students, alumni, employers, faculty, and staff to connect, seek professional advice, and learn more about organizations and opportunities within those organizations. The four annual receptions are co-sponsored by the Career Center, the Office of Alumni Relations, and each of our partner schools (CAS, SIS, SOC, and SPA). Find additional information as well as dates and times on Handshake.
