On-Campus Interviewing

On-Campus Interviews (OCI) provide you the opportunity to interview Cal State East Bay students and alumni for full-time career or internship opportunities. Interviews are conducted in Academic Advising and Career Education (AACE) for the convenience of both students and employers. 

You can manage your entire on-campus interviewing schedule through PioneerJobs including schedule setup, attaching your position and screening criteria, candidate selection and notification, and printing your final interview schedules. Cal State East Bay students and alumni have access to your position information twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.  


OCI occurs each quarter (fall, winter and spring), typically running for 5 weeks following the Career & Internship Fairs for that quarter and ending the week before finals. Schedule requests must be submitted through PioneerJobs, and schedules.  Requests are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Once your schedule has been approved, you will receive confirmation from AACE.

Once dates are scheduled and confirmed, AACE aggressively markets your On-Campus Interview schedule to the campus community.  Additionally, you can request to schedule an information session to talk about your organization and hiring opportunities with Cal State East Bay students.  Please contact Sylvia Head, Employer Relations Coordinator, at 510.885.2453 for more information.

"We have been very happy with the candidates that we have found and hired through CSUEB. I usually turn down other hiring events, because we have much greater success at CSUEB".

"I couldn't be more pleased with CSUEB's on-campus interview program. CSUEB has been a major cornerstone in providing Chevron's accounting/finance staffing needs for decades and I fully expect that this relationship will continue on into the future. The program allows Chevron to interview a large number of prospective candidates in a central location in a relatively short time frame. In addition, we are very appreciative of the support the career center staff has given us which has helped us gain a strong reputation and presence at the university".
