Employers wishing to conduct interviews on campus for full-time opportunities and internships may participate in our on-campus recruiting program.

Register through Cooper Career Connection (C3)

The Career Center uses the Cooper Career Connection (C3), a Web-based system, for its campus-recruiting program. The Career Center grants interview schedule reservations on a first-come first-served basis. This on-line system gives recruiters direct access to recruiting activities. Through C3, you will be able to:

  • Enter your job listing(s) on-line.
  • Attach your job listings to your on-campus recruiting events.
  • View and print student resumes submitted for your position(s).
  • Preselect candidates for on-campus interview(s). Only those candidates whom you have preselected may signup for an interview.
  • Send email messages to students who have submitted resumes.
  • View (and print) your on-campus interview schedule(s) and be informed about the status of student signups.

C3 is a time-sensitive system based upon deadline dates that relate to your particular interview date(s). It is crucial that deadlines are met. Please contact the Career Center if you have a question about your deadlines.

Interview Schedule Breakdown
The typical interview schedule for an employer in the program will begin at 9:00am and end at 5:00pm. Longer or shorter schedules can be arranged at the employer's request.

Interview schedules are as follows: 30-minute interview will allow 13 candidates per schedule and 45-minute interviews will allow 9 candidates per schedule.

On-Campus Recruiting Policies
All full-time employment offers must remain open for 30 days or until the last business day of November, whichever comes later, to assure that students are able to take part in the entire on-campus recruitment cycle. This policy ensures that employers are given equal access to all qualified candidates. In addition, it promotes the understanding that students will make the best-informed decision if they acquire exposure to all opportunities available to them.

If a student is unable to make an employment decision within the expected time period, the student is encouraged to discuss their challenges with the organization and negotiate for more time in the decision making process. The student and employer are encouraged to devise a mutually convenient decision deadline.

Cooper Union Grading
The Cooper Union does not practice grade inflation. We discourage employers from selecting a closed list of Cooper Union candidates based on their scores, as the challenging curriculum is what separates the Cooper Union from other academic institutions. Should you want more information about grading at The Cooper Union, please contact the Career Center.

For help booking an on-campus recruiting date, any questions, and assistance with C3, please contact the Career Center at 212-353.4112.
