On Campus Recruiting (or OCR) is the process by which employers recruit UofL students and graduates 'IN ADVANCE' for summer and full-time new graduate jobs for next year.
CES facilitates their recruitment by posting positions, collecting resumes, booking interview rooms, scheduling interviews and arranging information sessions.
If you are a registered Coop student, STOP here! Generally you cannot apply on Coop & OCR positions at the same time. Contact your Coop coordinator to discuss your job search options and choose the best route for you.
If you can check off all the boxes below you are set to GO for OCR!!
Attend an OCR Workshop if available. If you can't attend a workshop review this checklist carefully and follow the steps

Attend “Information Sessions” as employers come on campus to recruit. Employer events will be posted on our website, CES bulletin boards, the UofL “Notice Board”, the Meliorist newspaper, and in office. If you aren’t in Lethbridge we’ll try to keep you informed of events in other centres.
Remember to APPLY to OCR jobs as soon as they become advertised.
Order a copy of your transcripts by filling out a transcript request form. Drop it off or Fax it to the Registrar’s Office. Ask for the unofficial transcript printed on special blue paper with the seal and signature of the Registrar. Employers will accept good clean photocopies.
For Online Applications and if you Need Transcripts Immediately
You can attach an unofficial copy from “The Bridge” & indicate to the employer that you will forward them a more official copy if needed.
