How to Participate in On-Campus Recruiting

Thank you for your interest in interviewing WCU students. All on-campus interviews will be coordinated through our new online system Ram Career Network. Please review the items below carefully for changes/updates. Questions about setting up your interview day can be directed to Evelyn Doran at or by calling (610) 436-2501

Scheduling Interviews
To schedule your on-campus interview date, please submit a schedule request through your Ram Career Network account by clicking on the "OCR tab." Once your schedule request is approved within 2 business days, you can attach your full-time position or internship to the approved schedule. Please keep in mind that resume submission deadlines are 12 days before your interview date.

Interview Format
Interviews are set up in 30- or 45-minute periods, unless requested otherwise. A 15-minute break is built into the schedule, along with a 45-minute lunch. You can set up half-day schedules as well.

All OCR job postings will have a resume submission deadline. Resume submission deadlines are 12 business days from your interview date. Holidays and breaks are not counted in the 12 days. Once your resume submission deadline ends, you will get an email notification to select the candidates you would like to interview. Important dates associated with your schedule always appear next to the OCR position listing in your account.

Schedule Closing and Confirmation

Your OCR schedule closes 3 days prior to your interview date. You will receive an email notification with a resume packet when your schedule is closed. Please bring this packet with you to the interview.
