Employers Generally Target the Following Groups

  •  Internship applicants.
  • Students graduating within three semesters.

Note: Public accounting firms typically recruit in the fall. If you are interested in becoming a CPA, you should participate in the fall OCR season upon enrolling at Walsh.

Career Services will be holding several On-Campus Recruiting / Interview Prep Workshops in August. These workshops will explain what to expect at Employer Meet & Greet Sessions, On-Campus Recruiting (OCR), and the Career Fair. The workshops will also go over Interviewing Skills. For the FALL semester, these workshops will take the place of the Mock Interview requirement needed to participate in On-Campus Recruiting. Attendance at one of the OCR/Interview Workshops will be required instead of the one-on-one mock interview.
