The On-Campus Interview (OCI) Program allows employers to interview UMD students and recent graduates in our suite of rooms for full-time, part-time or internship positions. The University Career Center & The President's Promise offers 15 interview rooms to reserve, all free of charge.
Interviewing occurs during the fall and spring semesters.
Spring 2020: February 3 - May 1
Interviews are held Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Rooms are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. To give enough time for students to apply for positions and respond to invitations to interview, it is strongly suggested that reservations be made AT LEAST four weeks in advance.
