Students who attend this workshop will be granted OCI access within two business days of the training. In this training, we will provide an overview of CCE services and the ways in which students can best prepare for their job search. We will also review how to search and apply for jobs and internships using LionSHARE, CCE’s online job database and recruiting system. Largely, we will speak about the OCR Program, with a particular focus on on-campus interviews. Students will learn how to best prepare for on-campus interviews, become aware of both student and employer expectations throughout this process, and most importantly, learn how to use available resources while navigating the job/internships search and interview process.
