Athens, OH 27 September 2015 –
As my senior year goes on, the threat of real life comes closer. This past week, Ohio University hosted four days of career fairs, two of which were open to the whole university and two specifically for the Russ College of Engineering.
All four of these fairs were PACKED. Knowing that I need to find a full time job following graduation it felt really good knowing that Ohio University is there to help me not only to earn the needed education to succeed in industry but also provide the needed resources to find the job of my dreams.
Not only does Ohio University put on career fairs to help students find jobs but they also support an entire office with this sole purpose, the
Career and Leadership Development Center (CLDC). This office helps students develop effective resumes, learn to interview effectively and learn to network. Additionally, the CLDC offers career coaching services and several workshops every semester to aid in the job search process.
One of the best services the Career and Leadership Development Center offers is “Bobcat Careerlink”. This is an online resource where students can find and apply for jobs and internships by companies searching specifically for Ohio University students and graduates.
With all of these resources available to us, it really feels great to be an Ohio University student where we are not just numbers and our faculty and staff truly care about our career success.
