  • On-Campus Recruiting (OCR)

    Loyola Marymount University students and alumni are industry leaders in Southern California and beyond. Our candidates bring a strong academic preparedness to their chosen field, in addition to a sound understanding of workplace ethics. Through participating in On-Campus Recruiting (OCR), employers meet students, recent graduates, and alumni poised to contribute to the success of their organization.

    OCR complements an organization’s recruitment efforts by providing a convenient space, easy scheduling, and general support for recruiters wishing to hold initial screening interviews with students. Full-time positions are generally focused on – and marketed to – graduating seniors, while internship opportunities usually seek candidates who are sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

    We offer convenient scheduling of interview dates, private interviewing facilities, and effective on-campus publicity for your company.

    • Fall Registration: June 1 (open until booked)
    • Fall Interviews: September – November
    • Spring Registration: December 1 (open until booked)
    • Spring Interviews: January - April

Career and Professional Development staff members will work with you to customize CPD’s professional development presentations, which can be marketed to specific student groups and target populations. Prepare students for the working world while building your pipeline of talent at LMU.
