Career Corner

Many students realize that the opportunity exists to meet and network with employers on campus, but few understand that recruiters use timelines that differ from graduation timelines.  The majority of those recruiting for corporate jobs and internships will be here this quarter; therefore, those with winter or spring graduation plans are encouraged to review the listings of fall recruitment events posted at:  Career Services Events.  Update your calendars now to make sure you don't miss the events that relate to your career goals!  Not familiar with how to promote yourself at such events?  The  Promote Yourself tip sheet is a good starting point.

Study Abroad Programs
OSU offers more than 100 different study abroad programs in over 40 different countries.  The Office of International Affairs will host a Study Abroad Expo on October 6.  For help selecting a program and finding resources to finance a program attend a Getting Started session offered Monday - Thursday.
