By now, you've received news of the University's proactive response to the COVID-19 concerns. To align ourselves with the University response, Career Success is making changes to our services and programming, effective now through the end of the term. Career Success is reviewing each of our scheduled services and events on a case by case basis to determine which will be suspended versus modified to deliver virtually. Each program scheduled through the end of the term is being evaluated in this regard. Please check individual events on our website to see if we are exploring virtual options for you to continue preparing for your lifetime of opportunity. Scroll down to see the ways we will be continuing to serve you during this period.
Ways we will continue to serve you
We will continue to offer Career Coaching, though not in person. If you are interested in receiving coaching, schedule an appointment on Handshake, and the coach will reach out to you. We can connect via Carmen Zoom or over the phone. You might also be interested in Career Success Quick Chat
We will continue to offer resume review via our online site, VMock. VMock offers immediate, actionable feedback on your resume, and is available 24 hours a day, 365 days per year!
Walk-in resume reviews have been suspended through the end of the semester.
As always, our robust collection of guides and tip sheets are available to you on our website. These documents cover resumes, skill development, networking, interviewing, job and internship search strategies and much, much more!
Handshake is a great resource that should remain unaffected by our temporary changes. Use Handshake to discover on-campus and local jobs, fantastic internships, and exciting career opportunities! On Handshake, you can also:
Many of our events between now and the end of the term may be able to be modified to be done virtually. PLEASE explore our events calendar, and register on Handshake for any event that hasn't been canceled. Our team will keep you updated on the best way to participate in each exciting opportunity. This includes all the events of Virtual Week, a week long extravaganza of virtual coaching, employer information sessions, and virtual career fairs, April 13 to 17.
Lt. Governor Husted announced that the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation has developed a website specifically geared toward matching essential businesses with Ohioans who are able and willing to work as an essential employee during the COVID-19 crisis.

Keep Our Campus Healthy
The best way to prevent the spread of any type of infection is to practice routine hygiene etiquette:
- Wash your hands often and thoroughly for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water. Use alcohol hand rub as a backup.
- Cover your mouth and nose with your elbow or a tissue when you sneeze or cough. Throw away your tissue after one use.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- If you are ill, stay home. Keep a safe 6-foot distance from others to prevent disease spread.
- If you are seriously ill, seek medical advice.
- Complete and stay up-to-date on your Ohio State vaccination requirements.
