2. Connect with Career Services:

The event locations will not contact career services on your behalf to promote your session. This is why it is recommended that you connect with Buckeye Careers to alert us of your event as another way to promote your visit. We will be able to connect you with other Ohio State resources and with the college career service offices that may best represent your target student population. 


3. Promote your Event with Handshake:

Once your event space is reserved, enter the information into Handshake. Click the "Events"  section on the menu bar, then click on the "Request Event" tab to enter the details. Make sure to enter the location details in the description section of the Handshake form. If the location details are not listed, your event will be declined.
