On-Campus Recruiting Program
The On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) Program offers currently enrolled students and alumni an opportunity to interview on campus for positions after graduation, as well as summer internships. You must be registered in DuqCareerLink with a completed profile and an updated resume to participate in OCR.
Interviews are scheduled in the Fall (October – December) and Spring (February – April). All positions with interview schedules are be posted in DuqCareerLink. Make sure you check DuqCareerLink often for newly posted opportunities.
How do I find out which companies are interviewing on campus? How do I apply?
From the home page of DuqCareerLink, go to the middle of the page One-Click Searches and click on Jobs with upcoming interview schedules for the list of companies and the list of positions they are recruiting for. Click on the job titles that interest you to view a complete job description including qualifications. To apply, click on the Apply button at the bottom of the page, then choose the resume and cover letter you would like to send to the employer.
Make sure you keep track of the Application End (deadline) dates as well as the Interview Sign up dates so you don’t lose out on any opportunities. These deadlines are listed on each job description.
Why don’t I see the Apply Button?
If the Apply Button does not appear at the bottom of the job description, something in your profile does not match the employer’s qualifications. The box at the bottom of the page should display which qualification does not meet the criteria.
What happens after I apply for the position?
After the deadline date, the employer reviews each resume to determine who they would like to interview. Once an employer makes their decision (usually within a week after the apply end date), you will receive an email indicating if your application was accepted, declined or marked as an alternate.
How do I schedule an interview?
If your application decision was either accepted or alternate, you can sign up for your interview by clicking on Your (active) Applications in DuqCareerLink. Click Details next to the opportunity you were accepted for and you’ll see a link to Sign up for an interview. When the interview schedule appears – click the circle next to the time that you’d like to interview, then click Save at the bottom of the page.
When Duquesne cancels classes due to weather or emergency it is announced on the www.duq.edu website and on local radio and television broadcasts.
The Career Services Center will follow the University's cancellation plans. This will include our sponsorship of any recruiting events and interviews.
- If the University announces that offices are open and classes are canceled, all recruiting events, (on-campus interviewing, job fairs, etc.) will be conducted as scheduled.
- If it is announced that offices are closed, events will probably be canceled.
- If the University experiences a late opening, we will begin the scheduled interviews as soon as the University opens (If a 2-hour delay is announced, the University will open at 10:30 a.m.) Any interviews that are missed due to the late opening will be rescheduled throughout the day.
- Always check the University website for the most current information.
