You asked and we listened!
Did you know that prior to 2016, the Engineering Expo career fair was held on one day? Due to the number of employers interested in recruiting top engineering talent from Ohio State, we switched to a two day career fair in 2016. While the two day career fair created more opportunities for you by allowing more employers to attend the career fair, you’ve told us over and over again that attending two back-to-back career fair days is exhausting― and we agree!
To give you a break between the two career fair days, we are excited to announce that the format for the Engineering Expo has changed. We will offer two career fair days and two next-day interview events, plus one day off in between! The dates for the 2019 Engineering Expo are:Read More

Are you searching for your first full-time job? Trying to build the toolkit necessary for a successful job search? Want exposure to employers for future prospects? If you relate to any of these questions, then don’t miss the first ever Career Week!
Career Week lasts from Tuesday, September 3rd through Friday, September 13th, but the beauty of the “week” (it’s actually 9 days) is that YOU can choose events from a large menu based on what suits your goals. Offerings range from a technical interviewing workshop to a networking practice session (in a low stakes environment) to mini mock interviews…and SO much more! You can view a snapshot of events here. You can also log into Handshake to view full details for each event and to RSVP. This program is geared towards rising juniors, graduating seniors, and graduate students, but if you are a motivated … Read More

Welcome back to campus! As I begin my 9th year here in ECS, I want to thank you for participating in all the things we have to offer and for being such amazing and gracious students to work with. We try our best to listen to you and provide exciting events and services that align with your needs. Even though much has changed, much has remained the same. Resumes are still being used when applying to internships/co-ops and jobs; networking is still key to helping you find a job; and using technology to help you along the way has increased by leaps and bounds. But we hear it over and over—students still want that face to face interaction, so we’ve got you covered. We have drop-ins and appointments with Career Advisors. We have interview rooms so companies who visit campus can hold interviews here in our office. We have … Read More

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 … Read More

ECS offers a wide variety of tools to help students in the job search process. One of the options we provide is located in Handshake under “Career Center” > “Resources” titled “Other Opportunities”. Often overlooked, this section includes information about events or experiences that companies are hosting. Check out some of the most common categories you can find to enhance your resume, job search, or career interests.
Companies and third party recruiters put on career fairs at no cost to students, and many of these are virtual! Enjoy the experience of looking for specific companies or opportunities while staying in the comfort of your home. Many of these career fairs will target specific industries or majors so that you aren’t trying to navigate through 100s of unrelated companies. You will also see career fairs for veteran jobseekers and students with disabilities.
Some companies just want to get … Read More
