Fall Recruiting 2013 Instruction Guide

To participate in the 2013 Fall Recruiting Program (FRP), you must register with OCPD even if you participated in the 2012 FRP. OCPD will use Symplicity, a web-based system, whereby you will research participating employers, select employers to whom you wish to bid (apply) and schedule your on-campus interviews. Students will be able to view/see only those employers who seek their class year.

To begin, you will need to:
  1. Use the pre-assigned Username and Password that Symplicity generated for you. If you have forgotten your password, please call 202-319-5132 for assistance. You may change your email address, under Profile, after you have logged in.
  2. Complete your Profile on Symplicity paying special attention to your email address. You will be notified by email of all fall recruiting updates and in August of your selection for on- campus interviews. Employers will see your email address on your resume so please select an appropriate, professional based email address. It should not be linked to a “social networking” site (Online Reputation);
  3. Submit cover letter to OCPD for review by June 21, 2013.
  4. Do a mock interview with an OCPD staff member by June 21, 2013. For those of you that are out of town, or out of the country, please contact OCPD and alternate arrangements will be made.
  5. Between July 1 and 10, upload your resume on Symplicity and submit a paper copy of the exact resume to OCPD. You may submit your resume via fax (202) 319-4734 or email to Please see Fall Recruiting Procedures for details on how to submit your resume.
Beginning Monday, July 15, 2013, students will bid on employers via Symplicity:
o On-and Off-campus employer (OCI)
o Resume Collection employer (RC)
o Boston Interview Program (BIP)
o Direct Send (DS) employers are listed on Symplicity under Job Postings. You must submit
   your documents to the employer by the deadline dates.
