End of the Year Does NOT Mean End of Opportunities

For the third year in a row, ECS invites engineering students to participate in our Buckeye Engineers Work campaign. This is our chance, during the month of April, to celebrate the jobs that students have accepted while also providing multiple resources and events to help students land an upcoming position. We’ve spiced things up this year with more chances with win: TEN lucky students will receive a $30 Amazon gift card at the end of the campaign! We are also upping the ante with a brand new recruiting event: Spring Into Your Career Fair presented by Kappa Theta Epsilon. We continually strive to create opportunities for you to connect with employers!

Be in the Know: Employer Policies and Guidelines

Did you know that ECS has a list of policies and guidelines that we expect our employers to follow?
