As the on-campus recruiting coordinator for the Career Center, I work with all types of employers who want to hire Ducks. This is one of those rare times in your life when you have exclusive access to employers from all different industries, roles, and experience coming to campus to hire YOU.

Take advantage of opportunities to meet and connect with employers and professionals through activities such as career fairs, networking events, on-campus interviews, practice interview program, career information sessions, and more.

What is on-campus recruiting?

  • On-campus recruiting (OCR) is used by employers seeking to hire interns and entry-level employees from some of the brightest and most talented college students. Each year, employers recruit on campus through on-campus recruiting, career fairs, networking events, and on-campus interviewing.

Why is this important to students?

  • Employers are physically on campus looking to hire for internships or jobs.
  • You can start meeting employers early even if it’s your first term at the UO.
  • Build your professional network.
  • Get insight on a company you potentially want to work for.
