On-Campus Interviews (OCI)
About On-Campus Interviews
A very effective way to recruit Columbia University students is to take advantage of On-Campus Interviews. This allows employers to maximize their recruiting efforts by accommodating the busy academic schedules of students and hosting interviews in the Center for Career Education offices.
Requesting On-Campus Interviews
On-campus interview date requests must be submitted through LionSHARE by following these instructions. Interview Rooms are available Monday - Friday, 9 am - 5 pm during the academic year. All interviews must conclude by 5:30 pm.
Confirmation of your interview schedule requests and additional details will be directly provided by a member of the Employer and Alumni Relations team. For general questions about on-campus interviews, please contact Employer and Alumni Relations.

Rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis and cost $100 per room/day. Employers must notify the Employer and Alumni Relations of interview cancellations at least five business days prior to the date of their interviews for a full refund. Employers who cancel in less than five business days will be responsible for full payment of interviews but no additional cancellation fees.
All interviewers must check in at the Employer and Alumni Relations office at the Center for Career Education the day of their interviews. A staff member will show them to their assigned interview room. All interviewers should contact Employer and Alumni Relations if they are lost or running late.
