On-Campus Interviews (OCI) is the term used for when employers come to campus to conduct interviews with selected students. It is important to keep in mind that On-Campus Interviews are just one resource to use in your career search. Employers who participate in OCI are primarily large firms with a very structured internship or entry-level full-time program. You will see many finance, consulting, and big technology firms along with some advertising, not-for-profit, and government employers.

You’ll find listings for who is participating in OCI through Handshake. From your homepage, select Jobs. From there, select All Filters and check the Interviewing on Campus box. Interviews occur from late August through mid November for the Fall semester and late January through mid March for the Spring semester. Application deadlines vary based on each employer’s interview date, so check Handshake often!

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with our Negotiating Offers page, which can help you understand more about how to Evaluate An Offer, Negotiate that offer, and our Job Offer Guidelines.

Before using Handshake and signing up for interviews, please review our Handshake User Agreement.
