OCI Bidding Closes in 10 DAYS on July 31st!
OCI Bidding opened July 1, 2011 and will close July 31, 2011 @ 11:59 pm EDT. If you want to interview with participating employers you must use Symplicity to apply during the open bidding period.  To apply, upload all required documents and click the apply button for the employer.  It is not enough to just upload your resume to Symplicity.  Do not wait until the last minute to bid, apply soon!  If you need assistance please call CDO at 202.477.2163.

If you are having problems uploading your transcript into Symplicity, the file which includes the blue background is too large. To address this problem,  print the document and on a copier, reduce the document size to 65%.  Suppress background and/or lighten the document so that the blue background is invisible. Xerox a copy of the transcript and upload a PDF version at the Symplicity Documents tab.
