For alumni who have previously registered for NLCN (or NLR), you can continue to use the account established as an undergraduate.  Initially you will need to log-in with the user ID and password that was emailed to you.  Please remember to update your email address since your will expire 6 months after graduation.

Add On-Campus Recruiting - Add OCR to an existing account

Alumni are welcome to utilize on-campus recruiting.  In general, we recommend OCR for use by alumni with less than two years professional experience.  There is a $40 fee for alumni to access OCR and alumni must travel to the campus hosting the interview if selected for an on-campus interview by an employer.
