Participating with SLAC gives you access to off-campus job interviews with leading employers around the country!
The Selective Liberal Arts Consortium provides students with off-campus interview opportunities for post-graduate and internship positions with top employers in many different fields.
The organizations that interview through SLAC come from all sectors, including for-profit, nonprofit, and government, and opportunities include entry-level jobs and internships in a wide range of areas, such as:
- Political organizing
- Economic research
- Public policy
- Medical & scientific research
About SLAC Events
We offer 4 recruiting events: two Video Interview Days and two city-based Recruiting Days- in Washington, D.C. and New York. These events are ideal for seniors seeking entry-level jobs, or juniors seeking internships. Each event provides interviews with reputable employers, all in one day.
For both the city-based events and the video interview days, students review and apply for opportunities through our online recruiting system. Employers then extend invitations to the applicants they wish to interview, and students schedule their interviews online.
City-Based Recruiting Days
Our Washington, DC Recruiting Day and New York Recruiting Day are both held in January. Candidates selected for interviews arrange their own travel and accommodations. Recruiting Days provide an opportunity to participate in pre-selected face-to-face interviews.
Video Interview Days
Video Interview Days enable both employers and students to connect without having to travel off-campus or off-site. These events take place in September and February, and interviews are coordinated through each school’s career center using Zoom or other online service.

The Day of Your Interview
- Though these are virtual interviews, students are required to come to the CCPA in person.
- The CCPA will coordinate room reservations and video conference links for you.
- Dress in business attire (you can borrow from the CCPA’s Career Closet if you need).
- Bring a copy of your own resume and a notepad.
Please Note: It is critical that you seriously assess your interest in and your ability to accept an interview with each organization at each event before submitting your application materials. By submitting an application, you are making a commitment to accept the interview if you are selected. Students who cancel, withdraw, or do not show for an interview reflect badly on their college as well as the Consortium. Cancellations and no-shows place an undue burden on the scheduling staff, and may unfairly deny another student the opportunity to interview.
