On-Campus Recruiting (OCR)
CCD’s OCR program attracts organizations to campus to interview Babson students for full-time and internship opportunities. OCR accounts for hundreds of employers coming to campus each year to conduct interviews in CCD’s brand new interview suite.

How does OCR work?
OCR works through a system called Career Connections. Career Connections is an integrated on-line system which gives you access to OCR as well as other jobs and internship postings, specifically targeted at Babson students. Using Career Connections you will be able to:

Be aware that although web servers sometimes go down, our deadlines don't change. If you wait until the last minute to meet recruiting deadlines and the server goes down, you may miss out on opportunities. We encourage you to complete all activities associated with recruiting at least 24 hours in advance.
