Explanation of OCR Terms and Schedules


When setting up OCR schedule, you can choose the 'Pre-select' option. This allows you to review resumes and select candidates to interview.



When reviewing applications, some candidates can be selected as alternates. If your first pick candidates do not accept the interview invitation, you can revist your alternates.



Any student that meets the criteria for the position can schedule an interview, and you will not need to review and select candidates in advance.

Pre-night Info Sessions

Scheduled through Bobcat CareerLink, these sessions allow you to meet with candidates the night before the formal interview. The CLDC will arrange space on campus to host these events.
