Career services professionals are not the only members of The Ohio State University community to assist students with their career development needs. Many Ohio State faculty and staff members go above and beyond their call of duty to help students in all facets of development. We appreciate your efforts!
We know that faculty and staff play a key role in student’s success during and after college, and that they often reach out to discuss career goals with you. We have provided this information to help you guide students to resources on campus.
- Career Services Offices
Ohio State utilizes a comprehensive, de-centralized career services model. This means that many colleges have their own career service offices. As part of the Office of Student Life, Buckeye Careers and Career Counseling and Support Services (CCSS) serve all Ohio State students. As faculty and staff you may have students that are struggling to define their career goals for post-college, a career services advisor can help a student clarify those goals and put together a plan. If you have a student who is looking for career advising, please direct them to CCSS or your college career service office. You can also refer employers who are interested in recruiting for jobs and internships to Buckeye Careers, as well as refer students who are candidates for such positions.
Handshake is the university-wide job posting platform for Ohio State students. This is where students will look for on campus/off campus part time employment, internships, experiential learning, co-ops, seasonal/temporary work and full time post-graduation positions. Visit our Handshake webpage to learn more about the student experience. If they have questions or issues with Handshake (our online job posting board), please have them contact Buckeye Careers.
- Career Events
Campus-wide career events are hosted throughout the year. Students can find a full list of all career services events offered on campus by logging into their Handshake account and search for events and career fairs. Buckeye Careers hosts a university-wide career fair each fall semester for all students on campus.
