On Campus Recruiting (OCR)
Are you looking to increase your presence outside of traditional career fairs? We offer employers the following options to engage with our students.
Tabling Sessions are conducted on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm in the Student Center Lobby. This affords your organization the most student traffic during the prime time frame where students and faculty grab lunch in the Student Center or pass through this central campus hub.
The fee for a Tabling Session is $75.00. To reserve a table, please email CareerServices@sunypoly.edu.
Information Sessions are hosted Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays during evening hours (typically 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm). Employers conduct a presentation to a captured audience (club, class, student group) and share information relative to your organization’s culture, employment opportunities, career growth and more.
Information Sessions require a reservation at least two weeks in advance in order to reserve an appropriate space for your technical needs and accommodate the anticipated number of attendees. The fee for an Information Session is $125.00. To reserve an Information Session, email CareerServices@sunypoly.edu.
Tabling/Information Session Reservation & Payment Policy: Reservations are required at least two (2) weeks in advance in order to adequately promote your event to the appropriate cohorts of students and faculty. Payment must be received within 30 days after the invoice is emailed to the employer contact. Organizations with outstanding payments will not be permitted to participate in future events until payment is remitted. Refunds requested for cancellations made less than (2) days prior to the event will be reviewed by the Office of Career Services and made at the discretion of its director.
On Campus Interviews
On Campus Interviews (OCI) are an easy and convenient way to interview our students in one of our interview suites. Students can apply for a position and schedule an interview appointment via Handshake. Career Services will finalize the interview schedule on your behalf after the position has closed and the candidates have selected their interview time.
For more information on how to conduct an OCI and set one up, please email CareerServices@sunypoly.edu.
Why do I have to pay to recruit on campus? Each payment we receive is invested in software and services to enhance the job readiness of our students. Many of the systems require annual license fees in order to make them available to students from both of our campuses, including Handshake, BigInterview, Gallup StrengthsQuest, and Vault...just to name a few! These resources are available on both campuses to our full- and part-time, non-degree, non-matriculated, undergraduate, graduate, commuter, residential, and those studying abroad – many resources, including career counseling, remain available to our alumni as well. We are constantly researching tools that will bring better applicants to your business. Your participation is vital to maintaining these critical services. Your support creates opportunities - thank you!
