The Academic and Career Planning Center’s (ACPC) on-campus interviewing program offers students the opportunity to interview for internships and full-time positions with a variety of employers from business, industry, and government. On-Campus Interviewing (OCI) is primarily a pre-select system, where employers select candidates from among the students who request interviews with them. The procedures for requesting and scheduling OCI interviews using the Nittany Lion Career Network (NLCN) (formerly Nittany Lion Recruiting NLR) system are described in a separate section.
Alumni can add their names to our email distribution lists to receive job announcements and other important information as we receive it. If you would like to be included on these lists, send your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org. PLEASE NOTE: Lists are NOT organized by major, due to the volume of alumni requests we receive.
