On-Campus Recruitment



Attend at least the 4 required workshops below:

To participate in recruitment activities, students are required to attend the following workshops:

  • one Orientation Workshop,
  • one Resume Preparation Workshop,
  • one Interviewing Technique Workshop and
  • one Video Presentation Workshop.

In addition, the Office strongly suggests that students also attend as many of the interviewing techniques workshops and video presentations as possible. These workshops are designed to help students develop the skills necessary for effective interviewing. Copies of all workshop schedules are available on the online calendar, workshops home page and also at the Office. Please check

Fall Daytime Workshop Schedules

We use eRecruiting to conduct the administrative aspects of campus recruiting. Students are required to submit an On-Campus Recruitment Registration Form. This is the first step. The Registration form is also available online. You can complete the form online and print it and bring it to the workshop to submit. Before you print it, please make sure that you change your printer page set up from portrait to landscape.

Remember that you have to attend the Orientation Workshop to have your eRecruiting account activated for the OCR program. Without an account, you won't be able to apply or sign-up for campus recruitment.

Have an active e-mail address & eRecruiting Account


After you receive the user-id and password, you need to log-in to the eRecruiting by following the QC Careerlink from the main page at:

to complete your profile and registration information, to upload your resume, to publish it to appropriate resume books, to apply for on-campus recruitment jobs and to sign-up for an interview slot. You can use the following guidelines and manuals to help you through the process.

Meet the resume deadlines


Before you submit and publish your resume, your resume MUST be approved by the Office of Career Development & Internships. We suggest that you develop a draft of your resume based on one of the formats recommended on our web site. You need to submit a draft of your resume (to be picked up within 2-3 days) to the Office of Career Development and Internships for review. After you make the suggested corrections, you must submit 1 FINAL COPY of your completed resume to our office.


Resumes needs to be submitted on or before the dates indicated below by majors:

  • Accounting Majors: September 18
  • Computer Science Majors: September 26
  • Liberal Arts & Science Majors: October 9

Please note that: No resumes will be accepted after the due dates for the Fall 2013 recruitment.

Upload and publish your resume

Next, you need to upload and publish your resume using your user-id and password to log into the QC eRecruiting system.


You can post one or more versions of your resumes and cover letter on eRecruiting. Remember you are required to use a resume format that is approved by the Office.

To upload a resume, cover letter, or other documents to your eRecruiting account, please follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Document link on the main navigation bar.
  2. On the document page, select a document type from the Upload Document drop-down menu (resume, cover letter, writing sample, other document).
  3. On the Add Resume/Cover Letter/Writing Sample/Document Page, click on the Browse button and find the document you wish to upload. Note, it must be in MS or RTF format.
  4. Click the Upload button.

The system displays your documents - your current document page for the type of document you just uploaded. You can click on any of the buttons in the documents section to view your current resume, cover letters, writing samples, or other documents. If you upload more than one resume, select one as your Primary Resume. Scroll down to 'Change Your Primary Resume', select your new primary resume, and click the Change button. Click OK.

Important Reminders:

After posting your resume, it is very important that you publish it. Publishing it means that it is available to employers. For campus recruiting, you need to apply directly to each employer that is scheduled to recruit. We strongly advise you to apply to as many employers as possible in your major.

Apply for OCR jobs in eRecruiting


To apply for OCR Jobs, click on "Interview Schedule" under Upcoming Events located on your left hand side of eRecruiting homepage. Apply to any of the OCR jobs by clicking on 'Apply' button in the job description. Each job has an application end date; you can apply for the OCR jobs at anytime before the application end date occurs.

Please note that even if you are registered in the program, you can loose your chance for an interview if you do not apply for any of the OCR jobs. Applying for OCR jobs means that you are sending your resume and name to the employer to select you as a candidate. Unless otherwise is mentioned in the orientation workshops, our office does not apply for OCR jobs or send your resume to the employers on your behalf. You pick the employers & the jobs you would like to apply through QC eRecruiting. Therefore, it is important that you apply for the OCR jobs and interviews scheduled on QC eRecruiting.

Check your e-mail and status of your applications in your eRecruiting account regularly

After you apply for on-campus recruitment jobs, employers will review your resume and make decisions by a certain deadline. You will be notified about employer decisions via the email address that you used for the account registration or edited in your profile. You can also review that information by logging into your account and clicking on 'APPLICATIONS' tab from the horizontal navigation menu. It is highly recommended that you check the status of your application by logging into your account regularly.

Definitions of Employer Decisions:

  • Accepted: The employer has accepted your application for an interview.
  • Alternate: The employer has accepted you as an alternate candidate for an interview.
  • Undecided: The employer has yet to make a decision on your application.
  • Declined: The employer has declined your application for an interview.

If you receive an 'Accepted' or 'Alternate' decision for any of your applications, the process is not complete yet. You need to sign-up for a time slot when the sign-up starts. Please read the next section for more details on sign-ups.

Note: After employers have made the decision and selected the candidates they want to interview, they are suppose to show 'Declined' for those applicants who are not selected. Sometimes, please be aware if the employer neglects to check 'Declined', the application will unfortunately continue to show 'Undecided'.

Sign-up for an Interview

After you receive an e-mail stating that you've been accepted for an interview by a particular employer, or after you check the status of your application and see that the employer's decision for your application(s) is 'Accepted', log-into your account and click on 'Applications' to bring up your application list. Then select the job title whose employer decision is 'Alternate' or 'Accepted'. Follow the instructions on your screen for when and what time to sign-up for an interview slot. You may loose your chance for an interview if you do not sign-up for a time slot. Please also note that sign-ups will be on a first come first served basis. Employers may accept more student applications than available interview slots. You have to make sure that you pick a time slot for an interview as soon as the sign-up begins. Sign-ups usually start 2-3 weeks before the interview date. (You can check when your sign-up starts for each interview date by logging into your account and reviewing your applications).

Once again, remember that you have to attend the Orientation Workshop to have your eRecruting account activated. Without an account you won't be able to apply or sign-up for campus recruitment.

Show up for the Interview

Should you decide not to accept a particular interview, please contact the Office immediately so we can offer the slot to another student. The office cannot call students for interviews; you must keep up to date with your interview requests and appointment. If you cancel more than two interviews after you have signed up, you will be required to see a counselor at the Office before another interview appointment is scheduled for you. You will also be required to write a letter of apology to the recruiter before you can sign-up for subsequent interviews.

Don't miss your appointments. If you fail to show up for an interview, your name will be removed from the recruiting schedule. No-shows are unprofessional, waste the employer's time, and deprive other students of an opportunity to be interviewed.

If an emergency or other unforeseen situation arises, call the Office immediately at (718) 997-4465.

Fill out the 'Job Placement Form'

After the interview, if you have been contacted by an employer and you've been offered a position, you are required to fill out a JOB PLACEMENT form at the office.
