The Virtual “On-Campus” Recruiting (OCR) program allows organizations to conduct interviews online with students from all majors during the fall and spring semesters for full-time salaried and paid internship opportunities. The OCR program assists with managing your virtual interview schedules within connectSC, by collecting resumes of qualified candidates and utilizing the time scheduling feature to set up your interviews. This program is complimentary for employers.
“Despite a change to the virtual recruiting environment and being a new Recruiter this school year, the Career Center has been a great resource to connect with USC students [through OCR].”

“I think [virtual OCR] is one of the most organized and best run programs. The Career Center is responsive and very helpful.”
