End of the Year Does NOT Mean End of Opportunities
by Katy Arenschield | March 26, 2019
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!
Report your job for a chance to win: If you’ve already accepted a co-op, internship, or full-time job this summer, make sure to report it to ECS. This (confidential, aggregate) data helps (among other things): the college retain its ABET accreditation, fellow students evaluate their own employment offers, and employers determine starting salaries. All upcoming jobs reported this semester (between January 7 – April 21) will be entered into the raffle, so don’t delay if you haven’t reported yet!
Learn how to shine on your summer internship: Attend the workshop on April 11th to learn how to stand out on the job and potentially land a return offer! RSVP on Handshake.
Celebrate! During the week of April 1-5, take a break from studying and indulge your sweet tooth. If you’ve reported an upcoming co-op, internship, or full-time job, stop by ECS to get a free Cheryl & Co individually wrapped cookie. Then, stay tuned for details on a special celebration event ECS will be hosting the week of April 15th. You won’t want to miss it!
If you are actively seeking employment, ANY of the opportunities below will earn you entry (multiple activities = multiple entries) into the raffle for an Amazon gift card, and more importantly, elevate your job search!
Talk to hiring companies at the April career fair: 30 companies will be coming to campus on April 8 to meet with engineering students at the inaugural Spring Into Your Career Fair. EVERY company attending the fair has at least one open position on Handshake, and they are eager to fill summer and/or fall positions. Check out the list of companies on Handshake under "Events" > "Career Fairs" and be sure to apply beforehand!
Attend a Job Search Workshop: Our Job Search Crash Course Workshop (offered twice in April) will give you resume tips and job search strategies to land a position. RSVP on Handshake.
Come see us! We are available EVERY weekday to help you troubleshoot your search. We hold walk-in hours from 1-3pm every day. Need more than 10 minutes of help? Call ECS (614-292-6651) to schedule a 30-minute appointment or a 60-minute mock interview!
Whether it’s to celebrate a new job, help you seek a position, or maybe even both – we look forward to seeing you during April for Buckeye Engineers Work!
