Ohio State is excited to announce our new partnership with Handshake, a modern platform for college recruiting. Handshake is replacing our current system, FutureLink. Handshake is a career-networking platform for Ohio State and recent graduates to connect with employers and internship sites in the corporate, nonprofit, and government sectors that are interested in recruiting Ohio State students.
As soon as you enroll in the College of Arts and Sciences (ASC), choose a few Career Communities to join. Each community is based around an industry and will offer unique content. Regardless of your chosen major, you can explore multiple Career Communities and attend events across the industries — you’ll develop a great network for future opportunities and learn about the wonderful career paths available to ASC students.
A series of casual events where you can speak off the record with alumni and employers about potential career fields in a laid-back setting. These events are designed to help you learn about your interests and find meaningful work that you’ll love.
A more professional event series catered to students who have decided upon their career paths and are ready to connect with alumni and employers about opportunities. These events are designed to help you achieve success in your internship and full-time job search.
Going beyond the classroom offers you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience through an internship, volunteer experience, campus involvement and other resume-building experiences. Each activity will prove valuable to shaping your career readiness and future workplace skills.
The Center for Career and Professional Success offers a variety of services specific to the needs of Arts and Sciences students and recent graduates. These services can help you develop and refine your application materials, evaluate the effectiveness of your search strategies, identify sources of potential network contacts, and assist with interview preparation.
