The On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) Program allows students to interview on GW’s campus for job opportunities with a wide range of organizations, including non-profit, government, and corporations. To see a sample list of employers who recruit through the OCR Program, click here.
On-Campus Recruiting takes place during the Fall and Spring semesters. Typically, full-time hiring for the following summer occurs in the FALL. Intern hiring typically occurs in the SPRING. However, you can expect some organizations recruiting for both full-time and internship positions to be conducting interviews during both semesters.
For the 2011-2012 academic year OCR will occur during the following dates:
Fall: September 27 – December 1
Spring: January 30 – April 15
Many employers also host on-campus information sessions and/or presentations. It is advised that you attend these events for the companies you are interested in to take advantage of the opportunity network with recruiters and/or company representatives. View and RSVP to information sessions in GWorkSB > Events > Information Sessions.
To participate in OCR, you must have an account in GWork, our online recruiting system. This system manages the OCR program and allows you to find and apply to jobs and schedule interviews.
To get started, all students must participate in a mandatory online GWSB OCR Orientation (the link can be found below and is also located in GWorkSB), which will teach you how to use the OCR module in GWorkSB and review policies and guidelines for participating in the program. Once you have passed the quiz at the end of the orientation, you will be taken to a form to request access to OCR. The career center manually approves access, and you can expect to gain access to the program within 48 hours of submitting your request.
Interviews take place in either the University Career Center in Old Main (corner of 20th and F) or in Duques Hall (corner of 22nd and G). Click here to log into GWorkSB to view the orientation and get started: www.gworksb.com.
