On-Campus Recruiting at CSUF

On-Campus Recruiting at CSUF is a convenient and cost-effective way for employers to select and interview candidates for full-time career employment or career-related paid internship opportunities. Company information, job descriptions, resume submissions and interview schedules are all managed through our Online Employer Services program. Interviews are conducted in one of the Career Center’s five complimentary interview rooms.

Posting Your Position

Posting a job opening for On-Campus Recruiting is a two-step process. First, request an interview date online. Once your date is approved and you receive an email confirming your reservation, log back in and post your OCR position(s). Company information, job descriptions, resume submissions, and interview schedules are all managed through our Online Employer Services program.

We recommend that you make your qualification requirements as broad as possible so that otherwise excellent candidates are not excluded from applying. Strict restrictions on major, and graduation date will limit your applicant pool. If you wish to make last minute modifications to the format of your interview schedule (i.e. time slots, interview length, start/end time), please contact the Career Center prior to selecting your candidates. For assistance posting your OCR posting, you may also call Joanna Liu at (657) 278-2035 for help with posting your position.

OCI Model

  • Preselect: Allows the employer to view resumes prior to the campus visit and invite selected students to participate in the on-campus interview.
  • Preselect to Alternate: Allows the employer to view resumes prior to the campus visit and make primary (preselect) and secondary selections (alternate). Preselected students will sign up for an interview time slot first. After preselect sign up has closed alternate candidates will then have the opportunity to select a time slot. This type of selection process will almost ensure a full schedule.
  • Open: The open schedule allows qualified candidates to sign up for the interview on a first-come, first-serve basis and does not allow the employer to prescreen.
  • Room Reservation Only: Can only be used in conjunction with one of the schedule types above.

Interview Time Schedule

Choose the appropriate schedule based on the number of students you want to interview and your desired interview length. The start time for the interviews schedule is 9:00 am and the last interview ends at 4:45 pm. Lunches are scheduled from 11:45 am – 1 pm unless otherwise noted. 

30-Minute Interviews
12 interview slots per schedule

45-Minute Interviews
8 interview slots per schedule

60-Minute Interviews
6 interview slots per schedule

Changes in Interview Schedules

Once you have invited students to interview, they will sign up for one of the open time slots that you have made available. Occasionally, there will be gaps in your interview schedule. Please understand that students have selected their time slot around their other academic and work commitments and often find it difficult to reschedule at the last minute. Our recommended best practice is to use the free time to meet with career center staff, get to know the CSUF campus, or work on pressing projects. Wireless internet access is available. If you must alter your schedule after student sign up is open, it is your responsibility to inform our office and to personally contact each student on your interview schedule. Schedules will freeze at 12:00 am the day before the interview date. You will receive the most up-to-date version of your schedule at the Career Center on the day of your visit.

Identifying Candidates for Your Job Opening

If you requested Resume Book access, we encourage you to identify candidates directly using the Resume Book in your Online Employer Services program, email candidates directly and invite them to apply for your opening.

If you do not have Resume Book access, and would like to add this service, please send an email with your request to:

We also encourage you to contact a Career Center Industry Specialist in the area you are recruiting for expert advice and assistance in posting and promoting your opening. Visit our Industry Specialist page for more information.

NO Lobby Representatives/"Greeters"

Because of limited space in our Career Center facility we do not have offices or lobby space available for greeters. You are welcome to reach out to students prior to their interview time to set up a greeter meeting outside of our office. If you have any questions regarding this policy please contact Stephanie Reyes, Assistant Director of Employer Relations at 657-278-2244 or .

"Room Reservation Only" Option

Our Room Reservation Only option is useful for event participants interested in post-Career Event interviews, and for recruiters who prefer to take an active approach in filling their schedule. First, request a room reservation date online. Once your date is approved, post a non-OCR job inviting students to apply for your position. As students submit their resumes, via the non-OCR job posting or when you meet them at a career event, you may schedule an interview for the day of the room reservation. Please submit your completed schedule 24 hours in advance to Joanna Liu at, so that we can answer student questions, should they call us for information. 


As with many large universities, on campus parking is extremely limited. Therefore, we reserve parking space for employers at the adjacent Fullerton Marriott. Each organization receives one complimentary parking permit per recruiter. Requests for additional permits must be submitted to jliu@fullerton.eduone week prior to your campus visit.The Career Center does not assume responsibility for parking violation tickets.

Cancellations/No Shows

Should you need to cancel to your OCR date/schedule we request that you email no less than two business days prior to your actual visit. We will notify students of your cancellation. Fees may be assessed in the event of a no show.


On Campus Recruiting is open to employers with actual entry-level full-time positions and career-related paid internships. Campus interviewing is not available to employers with commission only or draw against salary positions. Career Center facilities are to be used solely to speak with students and alumni from Cal State Fullerton or individuals eligible for Cal State Fullerton Career Center services.
