Employers

The Office of Career and Professional Development is operating remotely due to precautions AUWCL has taken to protect faculty, administrators, staff, and students from exposure to COVID-19. Counseling appointments made in CareerLink now take place via Zoom, and our team is available, as always, to assist students, alumni, and employers during regular business hours. Please email us at careerdevelopment@wcl.american.edu with your questions or concerns.

The Office of Career and Professional Development (OCPD) offers prospective employers a variety of ways to interact with our students, including job fairs, Fall and Spring recruitment, job postings, and networking events.

2020-2021 ON-cAMPUS iNTERVIEW PROGRAM

We are pleased to announce that our On-Campus Interview program, both resume collections and interviews, will take place January 28-February 5, 2021, including the weekend of January 30-31. For everyone’s safety, all interviews will be virtual. 

OCI schedules are now live, and employers may request their preferred dates. Students will be able to view employer information on November 2, 2020. We will accept requests until November 22, 2020, but ask that you submit them before November if possible so that students have time to identify which employers are the best fit. 

Employers may begin their review of student applications as early as December 23, 2020.  Student grades and rankings will be available on January 9, 2021, and employer selection will close on January 12, 2021.

Please contact us if you prefer to recruit students in the fall or through some other method. We are happy to arrange resume collections or virtual on-campus interviews for your organization at your convenience.

Thank you for your continued interest in AUWCL’s outstanding students. Please let us know of any changes, questions, or concerns you may have regarding the 2020-2021 OCI by contacting us at recruit@wcl.american.edu.
