Our OCI Program is a convenient way to interview candidates right on campus!

Step 1: Pick a Date

Log in to HireMason. Select "Create New Schedule Request" and one of three schedule options:


Select this option to reserve interviewing space, post a position with set screening criteria, review submitted resumes, and invite candidates to select an interviewing time on your schedule.

Preselect to Alternate

Select this option to reserve interviewing space, post a position with set screening criteria, review submitted resumes, and invite TWO tiers of candidates to select an interviewing time on your schedule. Once preselect students select a time to interview, your schedule will open to candidates you selected as alternates.

Room Reservation Only

Select this option to reserve interviewing space only. We will reserve a room for your use while you create your own interviewing schedule. All interviews must be scheduled to begin no earlier than 8:45 a.m. and to end by 4:30 p.m. Employers often select this option if they would like to ensure a room reservation but fill their schedule with candidates met at a particular event they are attending on campus such as the Career Fair.

Step 2: Post a Position

Fill out the remainder of the request by attaching your available position(s). You will receive a confirmation email when your request is received and again when it is approved.

Step 3: Receive Applicants

If you have selected a Preselect or Preselect to Alternate schedule, applicants will begin dropping their resume in your HireMason account for your position(s). If you have a Room Only schedule, you will not receive any applications via the system.

Step 4: Invite Students to Interview

Once the Resume Submission Deadline has passed, you will have a three-day Employer Selection Period to review resumes and invite students to select a time to interview with you by changing their application status to Invited, Alternate, or Not Invited.

On-Campus Interviewing FAQs

Please refer to our OCI Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

On-Campus Interviewing Participation Agreement
& Employer Cancellation Policy

  • Organizations must post bona fide jobs or internships
  • Organizations must be equal opportunity employers in accordance with all applicable state and federal laws
  • Organizations must abide by the Principles for Professional Conduct for Career Services & Employment Professionals as set forth by the National Association of Colleges and Employers
  • Student resumes will be transmitted on the condition that parties outside of the organization will not be permitted access to those resumes without the written consent of the student.

Note: Third-party recruiters and temporary agencies are not eligible to participate in the On-Campus Interviewing Program.

Cancellation Policy

Just as we require students to provide cancellation notice when they meet with you, we also require recruiters to provide a minimum of 48 hour notice if they are unable to attend an event or On-Campus Interviews.

  • On-Campus Interviews
    Once the Schedule Close Date has passed (and interviews are set), if an employer is unable to follow through with their scheduled date due to poor planning and are unable to schedule a new date with Career Services, they are responsible to contact the interviewees directly to explain the situation and find a time to reschedule the interview they extended to the candidates.

  • Events
    If you are unable to attend a scheduled career event, such as Practice Interview Days or Resume Clinic, we ask that you send a qualified colleague in your stead. If this is not possible, please notify us immediately so that we may ask one of the employers on our wait list to take your place.
