OCI: Short for “On-Campus Interviewing” OR “Ooh, Can I?”

OCI is off-and-running, my friends!  Starting earlier this month, and continuing throughout this quarter, we will have a number of employers visiting our center and using our interview rooms to meet with our students, their potential employees. This is an exciting time at the Career Center (especially for my colleague Michelle F., who oversees all OCI scheduling).

For those who are unfamiliar with, or who are new to on-campus recruitment, I thought I’d offer a quick explanation about OCI.  It stands for On-Campus Interviewing, which is just what it sounds like. Participating employers can use ZotLink to manage their recruitment from start to finish (with help from Career Center staff). They have the ability to post positions, schedule interviews, communicate with candidates, and of course, interview them here on campus.

Here is the interview space

Here is Michelle, the Career Center staff member behind all the magic

 And, here is the tool that you (employers) can use to sign-up:

OCI can work very well for employers who are from out-of-town, who are managing a high volume of student candidates, or for those who want to streamline their UCI student recruitment efforts. And yes, it’s a free service. 

Now, I’m going to put this out there – many spots for Fall are already filled. That said, if anyone wants to join us over the next few weeks, please feel free to reach out and we’ll do our best to get you on the schedule. OR, put it on your calendar to consider for Winter Term – interviews will go from January 27-March 16. Further updates about future scheduling will be posted here, as they become available.

That said, have a great weekend, everyone!
