Interview Rice Students 

Welcome to Fall 2014 interviewing at Rice University!  

Interview Logistics

Registration for Fall 2014 is now open in RICElink. On-campus recruiting (OCR) for Fall 2014 begins on September 8 and goes through November 21. If you need to interview prior to September 8, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you.  Please note that resume deadlines for interviews prior to September 8 will fall over the summer break.  You may interview Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 5 pm.  Interviews take place in the five interview rooms at the Huff House. If your needs are such that you require additional rooms, we will make extra efforts to accommodate your requests elsewhere on campus. We cannot, however, guarantee alternate spaces on a particular date outside of this building. There are no fees for interviewing.

Request your schedule

The Center for Career Development (CCD) uses RICElink to assist you in managing your interview schedule. Log in or create a new account from the login box on your left.  From the RICElink home page, go to the quick link titled “Request OCR Schedule(s).” Then, complete your request including the date and the position(s) for which you will be interviewing. Once your schedule is approved by the CCD, you will receive a confirmation email including parking details and building location. 

You are welcome to interview students in your local offices (in person or via Skype) and still use the system to schedule your interviews. When completing your request, simply designate “Off Campus” in the “Location” field. You may also instruct students to apply via your company’s website. However, in order to utilize the interview scheduling function in RICElink, you must also collect resumes in RICElink.

In order to help streamline your processes, we've created a chart that lets you know all of your deadlines in advance.

OCR Models

When creating your schedule request in RICElink, you can choose from the following models: 

From the students who have applied, you will select and "invite" students to sign up for an interview on your schedule. 

Preselect to Alternate  
You will "invite" students, as well as alternates, to sign up for an interview on your schedule. *Please note, if you utilize this model, alternates will be able to sign up in the last two days that your schedule is open, regardless of whether or not your preselected candidates have signed up by that date. In other words, if your preselected candidates haven't signed up by that time, their spot may be taken by an alternate. 

Resume Collect
Students can drop their resume to your position posted in RICElink but you will manage your schedule on your own and not through RICElink.  

Room Reservation only
You will not use RICElink to manage your schedule nor collect resumes. This is typically utilized to reserve space in our building for second round interviews.
