On-Campus Interviewing

On-campus interviewing (OCI) offers employers the opportunity to screen candidates for further consideration for positions within the organization. Employers may choose from several different recruiting models that provide varying degrees of control over who you will interview during your visit to Mercer. 

Pre-Select: The employer screens resumes and invites select applicants to interview
Pre-Select with Alternatives: The employer screens resumes and invites selected applicants to interview. You may also select alternative candidates who may sign up for interviews should any pre-selected candidates decline the interview invitation. 
Open: The employer does not screen applicants. Qualified candidates sign up on a first come first serve basis. 
Room Only: The employer is responsible for building the schedule, contacting the candidates, and providing the final schedule to the Career Center. We will make the room reservation for you. 

 

Information Sessions

During these sessions, employers make presentations on topics that include the organization's career opportunities, culture, and products or services. We will publicize these sessions to the appropriate audience based on the information provided in the Information Session request which can be filed through Hankshake.

Information Tables

Information tables are another way to brand your company or organization to our students. The Career for Career and Professional Development can arrange for you to set up a table in heavily trafficked areas on campus. 

 

Professional Conduct

The Center for Career and Professional Development at Mercer University is a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) and abides by the guidelines of professional standards and ethics as outlined by the NACE. We encourage our professional associates and students to follow these same guidelines.

Third-party recruiters may post positions for employment candidates, but must inform our recruiting professionals of the actual employer and position before the job will be posted.

The professional staff of CCPD reserves the right to decline postings that require a financial investment by our students, or postings for positions that may involve unreasonable risks where known, or postings for positions that conflict with the NACE principles of professional conduct.
