REQUEST YOUR INTERVIEW SCHEDULE


The Center for Career Development (CCD) uses RICElink to assist you in managing your on-campus interview schedule. Log in or create a new account.

From the RICElink home page, go to the Quick Link titled “Request Campus Interview Schedule(s).” Then, complete your request including the date and the position(s) for which you will be interviewing. For a detailed description of the OCR Models, please review the list below. 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 RICElink 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.


OCR MODELS


When creating your schedule request in RICElink, you can choose from the following OCR Models: Preselect
From the students who have applied, you will select and "invite" students to sign up for an interview on your schedule.

Pre-select 
Candidates who match your screening criteria apply through RICElink. You then review their resumes, choose those you want to interview, and they sign up for a time slot.

Pre-Select to Alternate  
This model is the same as Pre-select to Alternate to Open without the open period at the end. This option works well for employers who want to pre-select candidates on their schedule.  

Pre-select to Open: 
This model is the same as Pre-select to Alternate to Open without the alternate period in the middle. This option works well for employers who want to pre-select candidates and allow on their schedule.  

Pre-select to Alternate to Open  
Candidates who match your screening criteria apply through RICElink. You then review their resumes, choose those you want to interview, and they sign up for a time slot. If invited and alternate candidates do not sign up before the schedule closes, the schedule will open to students who precisely match your screening criteria. 

Room Reservation Only  
Choosing this type simply reserves a room. You advertise your opportunity outside of the system and contact students directly to schedule interviews. Please note that positions should not be attached to room reservations, as students cannot view them.
*Note: The student No-Show Policy is voided when this model is selected. 

Resume Collect  
You may collect resumes in the OCR module if you plan to create and manage an interview schedule (on or off campus) during the semester. This option is beneficial to employers so they can easily transfer their opportunity to an OCR schedule in the future. 

Open 
 Students who precisely match your criteria schedule their interviews online on a first-come, first-served basis. The Open schedule works well if you are setting up a schedule on short notice, don’t have time to review resumes and make selections, or are willing to interview anyone who meets your criteria.
