On-Campus Recruiting

In addition to Job & Internship Fairs, the Career Development Center coordinates On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) with employers to conduct interviews for part-time jobs and internship opportunities with Missouri Western State University students.


Organizations can take advantage of this opportunity to promote their company with an insider’s view of your company’s history, products/services, corporate culture, history, and benefits. Recruiters are encouraged to make arrangements at least four weeks in advance. For your efforts, the Career Center will arrange a table, and chairs and signage, with high visibility.

Make your request by contacting the Career Development Center Director (816) 271-4205.


On-Campus Recruiting is one of several methods used by employers to seek Missouri Western students for entry-level job and internship opportunities. Each year, employers recruit students and alumni through:

  • On-Campus Interviews
  • Job & Internship Fairs
  • Company Information Sessions

The Career Center strongly encourages students to prepare for these events by attending one of several How To Work a Career Fair workshops throughout the year, or by making an appointment at the CDC. During these one-on-one meetings, a staff member can:

  • Critique and offer suggestion on your resume and supporting documents
  • Coach you on how to network with confidence and success
  • Create a Mock Interview session to evaluate your interviewing skills

To schedule an appointment, call (816) 271-4205.
