Tips & information to assist you in managing the OCI process
- You can submit your résumé as early as August 1 for fall interviews and January 1 for spring interviews. The résumé submission deadline will vary depending on the actual interview date. Be sure to refer to the OCI cycle deadlines.
- During a 4-week OCI cycle, employers preselect candidates during week two. Most employers email preselected candidates, but you should also check Careers2Geaux on a daily basis to see if you have been chosen.
- Preselect sign-ups typically take place Saturday of week two through Thursday of week three. Alternates may schedule beginning Wednesday of week three, should time slots still remain available. Alternates, please note: Being selected as an alternate means the employer has already filled his/her preselection slots but would like to meet with you if an opening becomes available. If you were selected as an alternate, you are not guaranteed an interview. Alternates may select interview times during the "alternate sign-up window" on a first-come, first-served basis, if slots are available.
- Interviews are held during the fourth week of the 4-week cycle. Many employers choose to host information sessions the night before their interview date. Be sure to attend any evening presentations hosted by employers you are interviewing with. Presentations will be noted on Careers2Geaux, and are often considered the first part of your interview.
