Choosing the Preselect to Alternate OCI Model will allow students to see your position description(s) in Nittany Lion Careers and submit a resume and other documents in the system. All applicant resumes are in one place for you to quickly review and select your candidates.
If you need to use your own applicant system, you can ask students to submit a resume in NLC AND apply in your own applicant system when you set up your position posting in Nittany Lion Careers. Doing so makes it easy to use Nittany Lion Careers to select your candidates and allows students to sign up in NLC for an interview time.

Please provide a copy of your schedule to Career & Professional Development at least two days prior to your on-campus interview date.
