On-Campus Interviewing & Recruitment

What is OCI?
OCI is an acronym for the On-Campus Interview program. This program gives students the opportunity to interview with a wide variety of companies for internships and full-time positions on campus at the Career Center. These are not practice interviews - real employers are here interviewing students for real jobs. Many employers begin recruiting for spring graduates and summer internships during the Fall & Winter quarters.

Who can participate?
OCI is open to ALL currently enrolled UCSC students.

How do I apply?
Students must create a user profile in SlugQuest to sign up for OCI. OCI jobs are posted on SlugQuest. You can limit your search results to OCI jobs only by selecting "Campus Interviews I Qualify For" from the "Shortcuts" menu on the SlugQuest home page. Each employer will assign a deadline date to apply. Employers may also schedule an OCI based on candidates they meet at a career fair. In this case, the OCI job may not be posted on SlugQuest so be sure to come to the career fairs!


  • Submit your resume early. Employers can close resume submission at any time.
  • Attend all events where you can meet employers such as information sessions, career fairs, workshops, club events, panels, etc.
  • To prepare, attend Career Center workshops such as resume writing, interview techniques, etc (even if you have already been to one!)

OCI Policies:

  • OCI is open to currently enrolled UCSC students only.
  • Submit resumes to positions of interest prior to the deadline posted on each job listing in SlugQuest. Late submission requests will not be accommodated.
  • Select interview time slots during the indicated time frame.
  • Withdraw or cancel an interview via SlugQuest prior to the interview schedule closing date.
  • Students are expected to wear professional attire to interviews. The Career Center reserves the right to cancel interviews for students who are dressed inappropriately when they arrive.
  • If you cannot make your interview, you are expected to contact the recruiter and the Career Center (831) 459-4420. If you do not call or email to cancel you will be subject to the No-Show Policy.

No-Show Policy:

  • Email apology to the recruiter with cc to slugquest@ucsc.edu explaining the reason for not showing up and cancelling in advance.
