Participate in On-Campus Recruiting

NCA will begin accepting on-campus recruiting (OCR) reservations for the 2020-21 academic year on May 1, 2020.

NCA approves requests for interview and event spaces as they are received, with priority given to corporate sponsors. We make every effort to process your request as quickly as possible.

You may register for on-campus recruiting and information sessions via Handshake, NCA’s career management platform.
