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!
