Weekly Virtual Workshops

We offer weekly virtual career workshops via Zoom. All workshops are open to all Ohio State undergraduates, graduate, professional and post-doctoral students.

This workshop highlights the career planning process. We’ll discuss how to create a career vision and learn the steps to find and obtain the career best fit for you. Students of all levels, majors and graduate programs will learn how to expand their job search approach to broaden their knowledge of possible career trajectories and effectively highlight their skills and experiences through tailoring their application materials to each position. This workshop will focus on a variety of job/internship search strategies with an emphasis on networking that can be utilized no matter where a student is in their career journey. 

Strategies for Virtual Interviewing – Tuesdays, 1 - 2 p.m.

Our interview skills workshop is designed to help students preparing for job or graduate school interviews. We provide techniques and strategies for preparing for interviews, answering interview questions and behaving confidently and professionally during your interview. This workshop also covers what to do after an interview. This presentation can be used as the first step of our two appointment process for Mock Interviews.

Resume Workshop – Wednesdays, 10 - 11 a.m.

Your resume is often your first chance to make a positive impression on a prospective employer. Whether this is your first time writing a resume, or you are looking for tips to update and tailor your resume for a new opportunity, this workshop will provide you with relevant and practical information. We will also lay the foundation of resume-making by first discussing how to mindful of your career vision. Join us to learn more about what to include on your resume, how to format it and how to make it stand out.

If you require an accommodation such as live captioning or interpretation to participate in this event, please contact Ryan Wilhelm from Buckeye Careers at wilhelm.118@osu.edu. Requests made two weeks before the event will generally allow us to provide seamless access, but the university will make every effort to meet requests made after this date.
