On-Campus Interviewing Information

On-Campus Interviewing (OCI) provides employers with the opportunity to interview graduating students, recent alumni, and co-op / intern candidates right here on campus.  Our on-line system, CDSlink, is powered by NACElink and allows recruiters to reserve OCI dates, review candidates, and make selections online.

Participate in On-Campus Interviewing ( OCI ) at NJIT to:

  • Gain access to NJIT's top talent free of charge.
  • Conveniently meet with many NJIT students for first round interviews in one day
  • Target your recruitment efforts and meet with pre-selected candidates only
  • Build your visibility and brand recognition on campus
  • Allow us to manage the scheduling and coordination of interviews
  • Use your campus visit to build further connections with NJIT faculty and staff

More than 500 graduating students and recent alumni participate in OCI each semester, and OCI produces our most effective recruitment results.  Of job offers extended through NJIT recruitment services, the largest percentage, 35%, come from the OCI program.  Contact us today to learn how you can maximize your return on investment with this highly effective and streamlined program.

OCI Procedures

To schedule an OCI date, first establish an account in our CDSlink system.  Under the “On-campus Interviewing” tab submit a request for your preferred OCI dates, or contact Casey Hennessey at chenness@njit.edu or 973-596-3219 if you have questions about using the system.

Once the interview date is approved, you will be able to attach the positions you are interviewing for through the system.  As soon as the positions are approved and posted, you will receive a detailed confirmation email with the full details of your OCI visit.

Two weeks prior to your OCI date, you will receive a bundle of resumes to review.  One week prior to your OCI date, you can pre-select your candidates through the CDSlink system or email selections to Casey Hennessey at chenness@njit.edu.

Our office will handle the scheduling of candidates and provide you with the completed schedule and details prior to your interview day.


Career Development Services' interview facilities are located in Fenster Hall, Room 200 (See Campus Map).  Complimentary parking is provided in the secure parking deck located at 154 Summit Street, near the Warren and Summit Street intersection in Newark.

Information Sessions

Information sessions are another way for you to brand your organization on campus and build your applicant pool.  Companies will often schedule information sessions several weeks before an OCI date or the evening before the OCI interviews.  Request your information session through the CDSlink system  or contact Casey Hennessey at chenness@njit.edu to discuss this option further.
