We offer a variety of tools and services aimed at assisting students in attaining employment.

Employment Tools/Services On-Campus

On-Campus Recruiting (OCR)

OCR provides the opportunity for students and alumni to attend employer information meetings, participate in employer interviews, or meet and talk with employers at a hallway table in the University Center. Employers visit the CMU campus to speak with or recruit students and alumni concerning their employment opportunities.

Methods for employers to recruit on campus include:

  • Job postings
  • Hallway tables
  • Campus interviewing
  • Information meetings

Students and alumni are alerted of employer visits through the Career Services Upcoming Events webpage and by emails sent to their MAVzone email.

Career Fairs

We host three annual career fairs. This is a great opportunity to network with employers for current or future jobs or internships. Learn more about our fairs by visiting Career Fairs.

Not getting interviews?

If you are not receiving interviews when you apply for positions, consider revamping your resume and cover letter. Email it to Career Services and we will critique it and make suggested changes. Perhaps you need to enhance your resume by obtaining relevant experience through part-time or volunteer work. While some jobs may pay you well, they may not be building your skills toward making you more employable.
